The Acer Nitro 5 AN515 is not an old computer. Instead, it is my current machine. It is allegedly a laptop but has become a desktop.


Intel Core i5-8300H
32 GiB DDR4
512 GB SSD
1920x1080 @ 60 Hz


  • Ever since the NVMe SSD was installed, the computer might hang when restarting. This is a firmware issue since the keyboard light doesn't automatically turn off when this happens. So, instead, shutdown the computer and then start it.
  • Several keys on the internal keyboard are unresponsive, such as Left Ctrl, S.


  • 2019-01-17: The computer is transported to my parents' place from Best Buy.
  • 2019-??-??: ⚠️ The keyboard starts having intermittent issues with the affected keys.
  • 2019-09-03: The computer is transported to my dorm room.
  • ????-??-??: The keyboard cable is reseated, fixing the problem for a short time.
  • ????-??-??: ⚠️ My dorm roommate rearranges my desk while I am gone one day, putting a coaster under the still-plugged-in plugs on the right side of the laptop, which results in the ports becoming slightly wobbly.
