Try this:
1. First you need Vista Recovery Disk .iso file. Can be downloaded here: [redacted]
2. Then you probably need image burning program. I prefer CD Burner XP >http://cdburnerxp.se/download.php
3. When you have installed CD Burner XP, start program, choose "Burn ISO image" and browse to Vista Recovery Disk.iso file.
4. When program has finished to burn ISO image, put CD into PC with "boot mgr is missing" problem.
5. Re-start PC, press F2 2-3 times, go into BIOS Setup Utility, choose Boot, move CD/DVD unit up to the first line with F6. Press F10 , choose YES.
6. Click this link to find out what to press when PC boots from CD:http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/fixing-bootmgr-is-missing-error-while-trying-to-boot-windows-vista/

Yes you could, but check your specificaion to see what the maximum size hard drive the BIOS in your laptop can support.
By installing a new hard drive, you need to install Windows on this hard drive, together with the Acer Aspire's device drivers, your programs and your data. This is a lot of work and time.
If it was me I would add an external USB hard drive and copy my data to this external hard drive.

The advantages of this method besides not having to re-build your laptop, you can exchange data between computers without the need to take along your laptop, you only need to take your external USB hard drive.

Try attaching an external monitor to the laptop & see if you could get any display on it. If this is successful, then you might have either a faulty LCD cable or screen inverter board.
The LCD cable transfers data signal from the motherboard & video card to the LCD screen. It also supplies high voltage DC power to the screen inverter board. The screen inverter board works as a power supply for the backlight lamp mounted inside the LCD screen. It converts low voltage DC power to high voltage AC power needed for the backlight lamp.

I would try to boot it up in Safe Mode by continuously pressing F8 on your keyboard while the computer is starting to boot up. Than while it is in Safe Mode I would use System Restore to restore the Operating Sysyem to a earlier time before the Hard Drive became corrupted.

Your graphics card is unable to handle the massive graphics requirements of the game...

Your laptop might not be designed for high-resolution gaming.

To test and see if your LCD went bad you can hook up your laptop to an external monitor. If it displays fine on the external then your have a bad LCD or LCD cable.

If it does then the video card on the motherboard is bad.

Hello, the major reason of laptop randomly shutdown is Overheating, you said it is not over heating...

I will suggest you couple of things that you can try:

1) remove the battery and plug the laptop on direct power supply, then place the laptop on a flat and hard surface and then boot the laptop.

or do a complete virusscan of the laptop.

or reinstall the OS...

this is pretty easy, you must remove the encryption(password) code from your wireless profile in your windows and write it again correctly, this happens due to many reasons, but it will finally work.

Yup sounds like a typical graphic chip failure unfortunately, especially if it is also on 2nd monitor. :(
