You can use a torrent site like isoHUNT, to download a copy of the Acer OEM vista disc, this is a little illegal, but if you use your own Windows key from your COA sticker, it should register and activate ok.
You may have to download your drivers seperatly from from ACER.
You will need a torrent client like UTorrent, and the download could take a day or so

Acer 5100 boot up problem

Sounds like a short in the motherboard. I'd go with what the shop said and replace the motherboard.

My Acer Aspire 5100 is messed up ?

I had a laptop in my shop recently with the same problem. If you moved the machine at all it would blue screen. The problem was a connector on the motherboard that had came loose and was shorting the system out. I had to tear the machine completely down, and it took me hours to find it. With that said, you have a short somewhere on the board, whether it be a loose connection or bare wire, and it would be in your best interest to take it to a professional to find the problem.

Acer aspire 5100 - screen is turned off, cant turn it back on

The bios beep codes indicate the video card is not working, so you won't see anything on the screen.

Your video card is either dead, or is not contacting the board correctly.
If you are keen to open it up I will offer instructions to assist you. But in reality, your safest bet is to take it to a laptop shop and get them to do it. There are a lot of tiny screws in these things.

Acer Aspire 5100 Problem

its a fault caused by memory but not because of memory.
Either check ur hard drive with a utility(chkdsk)
or remove hd and clean pins and connection(small shaving brush is ideal for this) replace hd.
It could be bad sectors on drive and if not solved sooner than later ur hd can become damaged beyond repair.
if you have a xp disk,boot up with disk and select "r" for repair then once in dos platform type in " chkdsk" this is the easiest way there are other ways but can cause problems.
