Try rubbing alchohal first. If they are too bad you will need to disasemble or replace the keyboard.The keys do come off on a laptop keyboard. But they are an absolute pain to get back together. You will most likely break some of the retainers along the way. I suggest purchasing a replacement keyboard.

After pressing the power button and initiating the bootstrap process, several different pieces of hardware in your computer are powering up which could be the cause of this noise.

In a laptop of the make and model you're using I highly suspect the noise is emanating from the left side of the laptop, implicating either the exhaust fan's ball bearings or the main motor on the Hard Disk Drive (HDD). Acer laptops almost always have their Central Processing Units (CPUs) under the upper-left part of the keyboard panel, as seen from above. They also tend strongly to placing the HDD beneath the touch-pad portion of the "palm" panel, beneath the area just left of the actual touch-pad.

Quite recently I had a client troubled by the same noise on start-up, and although it was an Acer Aspire E 15 (E5-571-33VT), they still had the same basic design with the HDD and CPU placed as I described above. That particular case of start-up noise turned out to not really be as much of a problem as an annoying false alarm caused by poor quality shock-absorbers on the HDD removable tray or housing into which the HDD is secured by four small screws.

From this experience and from using a number of Acer laptops (and a similarly designed Compaq Presario C700) personally over the last few years, my best recommendation is to ignore the noise so long as you do not experience automatic shutdowns due to the CPU overheating or the accumulation of bad sectors on your HDD.

In terms of charging your laptop's battery and damaging a relevant piece of hardware, tripping over the charging cable from the brick to the laptop is the Number 1 cause. There are three frustratingly weak points along that same section of the charging cable going from the brick to the laptop.

I bet you dollars to doughnuts that at least one of the following was damaged when you tripped: the connection between the cable and the brick, the small section of cable leading into the male plug which you insert into the side or back of your laptop, the copper pin inside the plug's sheath, or the actual receptacle on the laptop's motherboard into which you would normally insert the charging cable's plug.

The last possibility listed is the most expensive to fix, because the piece in question is soldered onto the motherboard and has to be completely replaced with an entirely new housing and guts if any part of it is even ever so slightly damaged. This part costs $90 and up for computer repair stores large enough to negotiate bulk discounts with the manufacturer. Once you have the part, if you are willing to shell out the cash, you will need to almost completely disassemble the laptop's insides just to get access to the part in question. It is no simple task, because you'll be working your way into the nitty gritty guts from underneath the keyboard and from the underside of the laptop. Once you have removed the old, damaged piece, you will need a quality soldering iron, extremely steady hands, and no small amount of skill in soldering with silicon wafers.

A red "X" through the normally pure white battery icon in the system tray of pretty much all versions of Windows means that the laptop's main battery is not present, or if it is seated in the laptop it is not accepting/holding a charge. This almost always means the battery's spirit has already departed for the Great Bit Bucket in the sky, though in this case it could actually be a fault in the charging cables and brick.

In the interest of clarity, please note that your laptop should operate perfectly fine without a battery inserted, so long as you have the charging assembly all ship-shape and plugged into a grounded outlet. In this case the laptop is instead drawing all current directly from the AC outlet. This is why, despite tripping on the cable and having a battery that might well be dead, everything is still powered and all lights are green and good to go. Given all of the above, what you really need are a spare charger and battery which you know to be in good working order so that you can actually begin the troubleshooting process.

Finally, to piece it all together, I have seen and dealt with this exact same problem innumerable times, and through learning the hard way I have found that some laptop chargers can sustain damage, yet still power the laptop, but not charge the battery to prevent the mucked up charger from damaging it. The current directed to charging the battery does not pass through the internal power supply because the battery is normally protected by the charging brick, which converts the incoming current from AC to DC, ups the voltage and amps, and acts as a line conditioner/surge protector. I hope something in this answer helps you find and fix the problem. If only I could inspect it personally, I could tell you right off the bat what major malfunction you're facing.

Did you tried to reinstall a touchpad drivers?

Acer Aspire... | Answered on Jan 19, 2015

Turn the computer off.
Disconnect the AC power.
Remove the battery.
Purchase a can of compressed-air, and give your computer a "blow-job", to remove the dust, because the dust is acting as a layer of insulation, trapping heat inside your computer.

Reload the battery.
Connect the AC power.
Start your laptop, and check that the fans inside the notebook computer are pushing air out of the exhaust-vents. If not, the fan(s) have failed, and you need a professional computer technician to disassemble your computer, and fix the fans.

Activate the Bluetooth features of your Acer Aspire to unlock your laptop's wireless function. Bluetooth technology allows your computer to control and share data with external devices without having to use a connection cable or download drivers.
In order to establish the connection with other enabled devices, you must first enable the Bluetooth antenna so other devices can locate your computer.

Press the "Bluetooth" button found just above the keyboard.
The LED above the button should illuminate.
Click "Start," "Control Panel" and "Add a Device."
Your Acer scans for other Bluetooth devices in the area.
Click the name of the device in the window that appears, and click "Next" to establish a connection with the external device.

If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LED flashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp. Please click on this link and follow my instructions to identify the fault and possible fix :-

Had similar problem with a kindle and BT home hub - had to manually change the wireless channel on the router but couldn't get a channel that worked when the microwave oven kicked in.
I had two kindles and 2 home hubs and came to the conclusion that some devices must be slightly our of calibration and will struggle to connect on certain channels especially if there are near by routers.
In the end I changed my BT router for a Linksys and its been fine since.
