Hi there and welcome
Can you please remove the power cable to the Acer then hold the power button down for 60 seconds then release.
Once done, connect the power icon, and then turn it on and tell me please if you still get the lines.

Thanks
It is the actual LCD screen or controller that has faulted.
The lines are dead pixels and they are not lighting which is why they appear as lines. It can be residue power but we have ruled this out.
I am really sorry about this and you are going to have to return it to have a diagnostics run on it to confirm if the screen or the controller is at fault and this replaced (for the controller they replace the entire motherboard) It will be covered by the warranty if this has not expired, and the replacement will be done at no cost to you.
I am really sorry about this, and if you have problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you
