the colors on my laptop screen have changed, almost reversed and I can hardly read anything.

It also shows about 1/3 of my screen on the left with lines running horizontally through the screen. The rest of the screen has the reversed colors.

Try a external video card that might work.. for a external monitor.

Hello,

 

 

Hope the laptop screen color and lines issue is resolved but if not you may also want to consult the following article:

Another possible cause for screen issue may be connecting cables between screen and mainboard that are loosened. 

 

Probably good to check with your regional support site http://www.acer.com/worldwide/support/

 

Good day

I would connect an external monitor. If the picture is good, either your laptop monitor has gone bad or a monitor cable has gone bad or come loose. If the external monitor has the same problem, it is probably your video card.

Hope this helps.
