It sounds like the mainboard or CPU died. Generally the hard drive is fairly easy to remove, look on the bottom or the side for a screw labeled "HDD", which should uncover the hard drive area.

Vertical lines and then it goes white lcd screen


the only thing I have been able to do when this happens is force a shut down and completely remove all power sources to the laptop battery pack and chargers, wait a few seconds and restart.. this seems to be a common glitch with these acers... Mine has done this since day one I have had it for three years now and it is still functioning fine... so do that if ya want ..

Will it boot from a CD/DVD? Make sure the boot sequence is set to boot CD first and then see if it will boot into setup from a CD/DVD. If it will, then maybe try reinstalling windows. Hope this helps.

Black screen on Acer 5100, but will work with external monitor


It sounds like the control board or cable for the LCD may be damaged. If you're still under warranty, you'll need to send it back to Acer to be repaired.

Acer Aspire 5100-5840 USB Problems


Is your laptop still under warranty? I would go to the manufacturer first if it is.
If not:
the system clock is run by the CMOS battery. When low will cause a host of problems. Change it and let me know if this fixes your problem.
