I'd suggest these free bootable diagnostics: http://www.carrona.org/initdiag.html
The MemTest86 (NOT the MemTest86+) will boot to the UEFI
The hard drive diagnostics won't (and, unfortunately, I suspect the hard drive).
You'll have to locate a UEFI bootable drive that can run hard drive diagnostics.
I have an ISO for this - but it's over 700 mB in size.
If you're interested in downloading it, let me know so that I can upload it for you.
There'll be 2 versions - and both are experimental - they've worked on a few systems, but didn't work on the last one that I tried it on.
If you can't do that, then the only other option that I can think of would be to try another hard drive and see if that fixes the problem.
Unfortunately, I don't even know if this system can be worked on outside of the factory.
I'd suggest posting over at the Acer support forums for more expert advice.

There's many different ways to do this, and I'm not an expert at any of them.
The first thing is to try Rufus: https://rufus.akeo.ie/
Read up on how to create a bootable disk for an ISO on a UEFI system
Discharging the CMOS shouldn't hurt the system if done properly - so give it a try and see what happens.
