If it is a brand new machine, I think you should call Acer tech support, as it is covered under warranty. Sometimes people have the urge to take it apart to see what might be wrong, but in a machine covered by warranty, this would be a bad choice!

Acer aspire 5515(laptop) screen is black turns on screen stayscompletly black...no acer logo nothing just a black screen. power button comes up green u can hear the fan and harddrive start up


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 :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3598095-faulty_laptop_lcd_screen

I have an Acer Aspire 5515 laptop. My computer will turn on but it shows a black screen. I've tried turning it off and back on again. Removing the battery but it hasn't helped. Any suggestions??


Wow this is tuff,
Setting from keyboard, possibly.
Software, not likely.
Video Card, possibly.
LCD Screen, very likey.
But with no screen you options at home are limited.

There is a setting on laptops that allow you to send the video output to an overhead projector and cuts the laptop screen off. However, when you re-boot it usually defaults to the screen.

I betting on a screen failure. You may want to take it to a PC Repair shop. Or, buy one here,

I have an Aspire 5515, a few days ago the screen went black, may have been caused by overheating. I have since cleaned it(was very dirty and vents now cleared but screen still black. If you look at it...


The power inverter for the backlight is blown. It usually is sold with the screen. Replacing the screen assembly is not for the novice as it requires moderate disassembly of the unit and should be handled by a professional.

How do i find hotkeys on acer aspire 5515 laptop


The Hotkeys are;

1) Fn (Function Key) + F1 = Hotkey Help; Displays help on Hotkeys

To go on anyway;


2) Fn + F2 = launches Acer eSettings Management in Acer Empowering Technology.

3) Fn + F3 = Launches Acer ePower Management in Acer Empowering Technology.

4) Fn + F4 = Puts the computer in Sleep Mode

5) Fn + F5 = Toggle the laptop from it's monitor to an external monitor, or use both.

6) Fn + F6 = Screen Blank > Turns the Display Backlight off to save power. Press any key to return.

7) Fn + F7 = Touchpad toggle > Turns the internal Touchpad on and off.

8) Fn + F8 = Speaker toggle> Turns the speakers on and off

9) Fn + Right Hand Triangle > Brightens the LCD screen

10) Fn + Left Hand Triangle > Decreases the LCD screen brightness


Acer Aspire 5515 Service Manual ( Free)

http://www.tim.id.au/blog/tims-laptop-service-manuals/#toc-acer

Go down to the second Aspire heading.
The one that starts with Aspire 1200.
Drop down to line 6, then go across to the right, and click on 5515.

This is a PDF file. The computer you are on now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files.
I would suggest upgrading to Adobe Reader 9 (9.3.4.) though, if this isn't the version on the computer.

After you click you may not see anything happening for up to 30 seconds.
The file is downloading in the background.
Usually it takes a few seconds to see the first page, and additional time to fully download.
Suggest you let the file fully download before looking through it.

This is a SERVICE MANUAL, not a User Manual. Much more detailed, including disassembly procedures.
