Question about Acer Computers & Internet
Obviously it will not be covered by any warranty. Purchase a screen, via ebay and fit it yourself, No soldering required just follow the easy steps on utube.

I'm a PC technician and i have come across this problem before with built in card readers and i can usually fix the problem myself.
It sounds like Acer are just trying to swindle more money from you.
Warranty is supposed to cover hardware up to a year and should be their responsibility to repair.
Can you tell me just what they said to you?

No, there is a simple fix. However, it involves flashing the BIOS on the laptop.
Don't worry, there's not much chance of it going wrong as long as you follow their steps of flashing the BIOS (Incidentally, it's stored on most laptop hard drives).
The reader will accept a larger chip if the updated BIOS on the laptop manufacturer's website is written to do it. Contact the manufacturer via email first just to make sure.

I would start by doing a search on Ebay. Often times you can get parts or a damaged laptop with parts for a very reasonable price. I just did a search for your laptop model and found a damaged Acer Aspire 5315 for $81. As of this posting on 10/31 at 9:10 am CST time, the auction ends in 2 hrs.
After doing a quick internet search, I found a web site called http://www.screencountry.com and I saw a monitor for your model listed at $99.

hi, first you will require a small phillips/cross head screwdriver, turn your notebook over so you are looking at the bottom, you should see either one or two panel's with small screws in them, undo the screws and lift the panel ( dependent on the type of system you have 1 or 2 panels ) if you do not find the memory under the first one , then try the other one, once located, the chip will be in a holder with two clips either side of it, push these clips out to the side at the same time gently (as not to over do it ) then the memory should pop up slightly take note of the small cut out in the memory stick ( it will only go in one way ) then remove it by pulling up lightly on it at same time pulling out of the holder, to fit new one, put in holder at a slight angle upwards, then gently push it into the holder, and at same time push the chip down the 2 clips either side should click when fitted just replace the cover and there you have it...hope this helps please vote thanks
