Difficult to say where the sound circuitry is located. I would visually inspect the board and remove all residue of the water damage. The logic board needs to be cleaned or replaced. The part is available on common auction websites so you can try the repair yourself. There are also independent Laptop Repair places that will try a clean up Laptop Repair NYC.

Here you go: http://support.acer.com/acerpanam/Manuals/acer/2009/ServiceGuides/SG_Aspire_5517_09172009.pdf
You may want to just replace the keyboard since they only cost in the $30 range. Do a google search on acer aspire 5517 keyboard.
The beer might have gotten into the motherboard which could be a real problem. Good luck.

Acer Aspire 5602WLMI water in keyboard


Here is a great deal on a replacement keyboard:
http://www.sunvalleyus.com/AcerKeyboard/Acer-5601AWLMi-5602WLMi.html
To replace it, first of all, remove the power connector and the battery before you do anything on that laptop.

remove the 3 screws in the middle cover. remove that middle cover by putting a screwdriver in one of those holes which are covering the displaybrackets. pull it up slowly. same thing goes for the opposite side.

remove the 2 screws which are holding the keyboard and the cable to the mainboard.
Reassembly is the reverse of dissasembly, be careful with the ribbon cable as its fragile, and there is a little plastic piece that either pulls up or pulls out that releases the cable.
One of the easiest repairs to a laptop there is.

Laptop keyboard needs cleaning


I had a client with that problem--we removed the keyboard and tried to clean it. Turns out that our cleaning job was less than perfect because the laptop keyboard is mostly sealed. There was liquid that seeped down onto the motherboard as well--that we could clean up. The long and short of is--you will probably need to replace the keyboard. Of course, with nothing to lose, you could wash the keyboard and let it dry out thoroughly, plug it in, and see if it works. The key here would be the thorough drying. If you decide to try this chancy procedure, don't dry it with high heat. A hair dryer set on low might be the answer.

I have spilt a drink on my laptop, however I have managed to get everything working except the keyboard. Is there a way to remove the keyboard in order to make sure it is fully dried or to replace it?


Hi Stacy,

My suggestion is that you put your laptop batteries out first.And check your whole laptop checked from service center.

Distorted sound - drink spilt


ok..that's helpful..the sound card, so to speak, is embedded on motherboard on these units, so you'll need to replace that entirely(not simple, but not out of the realm of possibility).

Yes in a laptop Sound Card is comes as a integrated part of System. Before doing anything else it is highly recommended that you must download the Sound Driver from the Acer website and then install it on your Laptop. Be careful download the only sound Driver that related to your laptop model by using your laptop serial no.

Distorted sound - Acer 5602WLMi


those speakers are most likely damp and out of sorts..won't dry and work like before..

taking it apart isn't too hard..screws..but need to be quite careful to keep all parts in a sequence to restore to operation

The bastard laptop won't turn on!


  •  It could be beneficial to unplug the laptop & remove the battery. Let the system sit & dry for a couple days. More than likely you will have to replace the keyboard. Could be more damage that you do not see. If it is a sugary drink like soda, it enjoys tearing up soldered connections. Best guess wouuld be let it dry out. If it doesnt work & replacing the keyboard doesnt fix it, take it in to a service center.
