Hello. I have an Acer Aspire 5517. And just recently, out of nowhere, a few letters do not respond. Like the letter "t" won't respond. And a few others. This happened completely out of the blue. And now I won't seem to go away.

Hi vay_m0u8 ,

This is an indication that your keyboard is going to be out of order in some time.

All you need to do is to get the keyboard replaced if it's under warranty or follow the procedure below to check if it works.

  1. Open your keyboard , (Only if it's not under warranty) and then with a soft cloth clean the circuit present inside , you can use liquid like petrol for good cleaning.
  2. Once you have cleaned it , close your keyboard and then , check if it works fine.
  3. If the problem persists , either get a new keyboard , or get a replacement , if the keyboard is still under warranty.
Hope this helps ..:)

Only some letter keys work,all # keys work,Accer 5517 laptop


Kevin, it seems like the keyboard is bad on your laptop. If it has an extended warranty you should take it in for repair.

Did something spill on it recently or did it fall? Sometimes bumps or falls can cause connections to become loose and malfunction.

To gain access to your computer you can try a usb keyboard.

Where is the rtc battery located on an acer aspire 5517?


It's a little involved.............

All you have to do is completely disassemble the laptop, remove the motherboard, turn it over, and unsolder the Real Time Clock battery.

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

Drop down to the subheading Aspire 1200. (1200 in Blue)
Go down to the subheading 5330 (In Blue), scroll across to 5517, and left-click on it.

This is the Service Manual in PDF file form. (Free)

(The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files.
After you click on the file name, {5517}, it may take up to 30 seconds, before the first page comes up )

Use the PDF file page number box at the top, and look at Pages 82 and 83.

You may want to have a professional replace the CMOS/RTC battery.
A Lithium battery is a bo-mb when exposed to high heat.

Clear a CMOS password? Ummm, no.
Why?
Because there is a capacitor, or capacitors, that hold a trickle charge for the CMOS password -> INDEFINITELY

There are two small copper pads that have to be briefly shorted out with a jumper wire. How small are these copper pads? Usually the size of this capital letter A.

Where are they located?
Manufacturers do not state, and you can bet Acer isn't about to.
Why?
Deters thievery.

Usually located under a small piece of Mylar plastic 'sheet', and under the Ram Memory module/s, ('Stick'), or under the wireless module.

How do I turn off key board shortcuts?


Check your keyboard...

Is the Alt or Ctrl buttons stuck or pressed down?

If none of the above then it sounds like you need a new keyboard.
You'll be glad to hear they are quite cheap to buy and a professional should not charge a lot to replace it if you have the replacement part.

I have an Acer Aspire 5517 laptop. No problems at all until a few days ago when it stopped charging. Replaced the charger and battery, and still won't charge. Even flashed BIOS, Help!


Check the pronges inside the battery compartment. They will be like copper plated if they are not loose or broken then it may be a motherboard issue.

Some of my keyboard buttons are typing numbers when i press a letter. what do i do?


This issue could be from viruses. I have come across a few viruses that switched around a few of the keys from letters to numbers. Have a technician or someone you know who's computer savvy do some virus removal on your laptop.

Also, make sure that the Fn key isn't activated. Sometimes haven't that activated will turn letters into numbers without you even knowing.

Hope this helps.

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.

I have an Acer Aspire 5517 and all of a sudden, the keyboard will stop working. The touch pad works fine but nothing on the keyboard (nothing! the letters, numbers, hotkeys) will work. Can anyone explain...


With an Acer, most likely the keyboard went out or the ribbon cable from the motherbaord came loose. The touchpad and keyboard are separate units so will work independent of each other. It's a simple replacement.
