Would you be able to get the Windows loading bar before it goes to a dark screen if yes we could reinstall the Windows wherein you would lose information on your computer and to do the reinstallation all that you would need to do is start tapping on Alt+F10 as soon as you turn on your computer untill we find Windows loading files on the screen and then you would get the Acer recovery management Windows from where you need to select completely restore system to factory defaults and then keep following the instructions on the screen clicking on a few next ok or yes buttons and it would complete the process in 30-45 minutes time;if you are unable to get the Windows loading bar or the Acer logo then you would haveto conatc technical support and set up a repair for a video card issue.
When you say screen goes very dark when it booted to windows so it means that when you turned on the laptop when the dell logo flashes the screen was fine? if thats the case could you please try this. after turning on the laptop you will see the dell logo flashes immediately keep tapping on F2 and then it will show you the BIOS setup utility, please check if in BIOS setup display goes dark as well. If yes then try this, after turning on the computer when dell logo flashes keep tapping on F12 to boot menu then select utility partition to run the diagnostics. Please run test on the LCD check if display goes black when running the LCD test. Then try this when you sees the dell logo keep tapping on F8 to boot in safe mode check if in safe mode display goes very dark. Try this too, boot in F8 then select last known good configuration check if the settings on your display will be fix. If you can boot to safe mode no problem then uninstall the display or video driver. then restart computer.
You can also try to connect an external monitor if you have one just try to isolate if issue is on the LCD or the video card. If the display is dark as well in external monitor then video card needs to be reseated if fails then replaced. In situation like this most video cards is integrated to the motherboards. So replace motherboard.

If you have a Windows operating system installed, try booting in safe mode. You do this by pressing the 'F8' key after the BIOS messages but before the Windows logo appears. (You can press it several times during the boot procedure.) Then you select 'Safe Mode' from the list. If you can see the screen there is probably just a video setting that needs to be changed.
