Keyboard does work, but I can't use it for anything... I guess I'll post this in the Hardware Forum as well, maybe someone over there knows something. Argh!

I'd say that was a major breakthrough Does Acer change the BIOS access sequence every other day to keep it a secret from its users
OK, so one disk is accessible since you got the grub menu, and that one is sdb. That's the SSD where you mentioned that your OS is installed and indeed it appears to be so.
The error occurs when trying to access sdaend_request: I/O error, dev sda, sector 80000***
At this point you have to try and boot to a USB or DVD if you can't get to a maintenance shell or did you get to a maintenance shell

It certainly looks to me like you're in a maintenance shell. So here are things to look for:
In /etc/fstab check for any references for mounting sda
- Code: Select all
grep sda /etc/fstab
Take a look at the results of mount for sda
- Code: Select all
Let me know what you find.
Error mounting /dev/sda2 at /media/mint/cfecfd7c-5622-4a4e-9f46-23031c3b04e9: Command-line `mount -t "ext4" -o "uhelper=udisks2,nodev,nosuid" "/dev/sda2" "/media/mint/cfecfd7c-5622-4a4e-9f46-23031c3b04e9"' exited with non-zero exit status 32: mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sda2,
missing codepage or helper program, or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so
