Good morning, Suchitra;
Sounds like a definite problem with your LCD assembly.
My suggestion is that you use that warranty and have them fix it.
The problem won't go away by itself and if you wait until it's out of warranty, it will cost several hundred dollars to repair.

If you need any additional information, please feel free to ask. If this information has assisted you in the resolution of you problem, please return here to give my assistance an appropriate final rating.

Thank you, and have a super day!

If it is under warranty take it to have it repaired because LCD begins to act up there is a strong possibility that something internally is going bad. An inverter, data card, data strip, or bad backlight either way it is still under warranty. Either way before the warranty runs out get it repaired because after the warranty runs out the price to repair is out rageous!

I didn't get what you mean exactly... Can you able to upload an image with the details...

First you check the cursor blink rate of your system. Go to control panel and double click on Keyboard icon. Adjust the cursor blink rate and check. If this is not working then you need to upload an image with a few details of your PC as which OS is using.

Acer Aspire 5315-2153 Serial number

Sometimes a serial number will be imprinted on a receipt, depending on where you bought the computer...or on packaging that you might have saved...
I've seen suggestions that it might be possible to locate it in the cmos/bios setup, but that doesn't seem too likely to me, and if you found one there, it's hard to believe it would be the same as the production ser. #.
You could try sending a support request to Acer, describing your situation... they might have some trick to locate critical info like hitting esc or F2 as it boots, but it may scroll by too quickly to read...

When I type a letter I i get 5 or 6 not the letter??

You've probably got number lock activated / deactivated. This is especially common if you're using a laptop computer. Look for the "Num Lock" button on your keyboard and try pressing it. If you're using a laptop and the Num Lock button is a different color, you might need to hold another key "Fn", Shift, Cntrl, etc while pressing "Num Lock".

Serial number is not valid

Register your new computer by phone, that way, a support person will be able to help you figure out any mistakes in either the serial number or your reading of the serial number. (in some fonts, some numbers look like letters, mainly zeros and ones)
