Since alt f10 is not working.

Time to use those restore dvds you made earlier. If not, call Acer and order them up. Yes, I've read where people write ". I can not find a copy of Acer's eRecovery Management anywhere on the internet. "

So don't gripe too long about it.

That's either a hardware issue, or a software issue (drivers, service) or a setting.
If you got it new, you've got warranty.

If no luck with warranty, see if going back to factory conditions from the recovery media helps. If not, it's a hardware issue.
