Did you try to turn it brighter with the graphic options. You can right click on the screen where no windows open and choose graphic options or graphic properties from the pop up menu or something about display or graphic if you are using some kinds of display cards. Then you can adjust the bright and contrast of the screen. Or you can try to use the buttons on your LCD for that if any. The screen may be brighter with your power cord on so the battery will last longer as one of the power saving plan you can specify in the power options of control panel. You can adjust that plan so it will not become darker with only the battery. Also you can check the LCD connections and the backlight circuit but those takes a lot of manual reading and screws work.

    So you did not see any logos or text displayed on the screen, right? I will suggest you to boot in safe mode or the Last Known Good Configuration by pressing F8 when booting up (hold it down when you restart your computer). Or you may try to enter system setup (BIOS) by pressing the key for that described on the manual. Mine will display a message telling me to press F2 to enter system setup. There I can check whether the hard disk is one of the booting device. Make sure there is no CD, SD or flash drive plugged in when you restart. If that does not bring up anything, then you may need to check whether the processor is tight on the mainboard and whether the hard disk is connected properly. Open the case and reconnect the hard disk and press the processor towards the mainboard if necessary. If you did hear the fan turning and there are sounds about your operation but no display, you may try to connect another monitor to the VGA port on your laptop. If that will work, then you may need to check the cable connection to the LCD and make sure it is through. Sometimes a factory default restore will also help if the drivers are corrupted and some virus are on the disk. You can see how to do that on the manual too.

I have one notebook aspire d260 notebook, but i cant start the windows, what can i do??

Hi and Welcom to Fixya!

To be sure that nothing is preventing the machine from accessing the hard drive and successfully boot to windows, remove all devices attached to the notebook. If this does not work, chances are, you might have a corrupted windows.

If you have already backup your important files (which every laptop owner should do), you can just simply reset the machine back to factory settings.

To restore Acer Aspire 1 D260-A to factory settings: press Alt+F10 when you boot up the laptop. You will see Acer Recovery Management, select "restore system to factory default settings" then follow the instructions.

Hope this helps!

My acer aspire one d260 has no cd rom and i tried alt f10 how can i boot it

If you have tried the restore boot process without sucess, you will need to reinstall windows from either an external usb cd drive, or the more time consuming method here:
remember if using the method, to download a sata driver from acers website for the hard drive
