So i bought an ACER ASPIRE ONE D255 red slick color laptop recently, now it's only second hand but it works fine. i checked the audio, video and it's ok. i have two problems: -when i would try and play games like even just solitaire or minesweeper it would say an error like "install a drive" or something about hardware acceleration... -then i have a problem with wifi, it says it can't connect either like an error is showing up again.. any insights? with some detailed explanation please. im very new at this :(

Regarding the unexpected errors on playing games like solitaire or minesweeper on your D255...
As it is second hand, there may be hardware or software problems or both. Software problems can be eliminated by doing a restore of the notebook to its factory image and settings as follows...
1. power off the notebook completely and then power on again
2. during the start-up, press Alt key (to left of space bar) and F10 key together repeatedly
3. wait several minutes for Acer eRecovery to load
4. after loading eRecovery, use the up and down cursor keys to select restore type.
5. following is from the initial screen for Acer eRecovery Management (V7.0.10)
Select Restore Type
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[>] Completely Restore System to Factory Defaults
Restore your PC to factory default status.
All data on C: drive will be deleted.
[>] Restore Operating System and Retain User Data
Restore only the operating system of your PC to the factory defaults.
Files from your user accounts will be transferred to C:\backup.
This option will not remove persistent viruses or malware.
[>] Exit

Regarding WiFi problem...
1. may just need to turn on the WiFi by pushing the slide switch for it at the front right of the D255
2. you would do this after restoring to factory defaults above to ensure no software problems....

Could be a couple of things, backlighting, inverter, a tiny switch that controls on/off of the monitor, when you open and close the laptop lid, it may get stuck or damaged, usually found near the monitor hinges.

Once i log onto my acer aspire one D255 the screen goes black and it wont even show me the task manager. i have already re booted and shut down


test it in safe mode. if it works, do a restore to a previous working date or last known-good configuration. if you cannot get to the Windows log in at all, reinstall your OS. if nothing shows up on the screen from the time you power it on, test an external display and if it does not work, sounds like your video card is faulty and needs a replacement
