Check the fan and make sure it is running. It will shut off if it gets too hot which can be caused by a fan failure. If the fan is okay, you may need to reseat the heatsink and reapply fresh thermal compound to it. Oh and please take a moment to give this solution a fixya rating. Thanks! :c)

I have same problem before, it is because my laptop keyboard was stuck. Try to remove your laptop keyboard and turn the laptop without keyboard. If its run normally, you should replace your keyboard with a new one.

You need to remove the middle cover of the laptop and unscrew a few screw at the lower case. Try the find the logo keyboard at the lower case. I think just this model got screw to remove first to take it out.
The cable that connects the panel to the conputer is not in the connector correctly. It is probably skewed slightly rather than ebing straight into the connector. Since the individual connections are very close to each other, there are a few that are shorted or not connected at all.
Check to see if the drivers are loaded for it in the device manager. This device may also need a utilities driver in order to function properly. You can find these drivers at Acer's support site or at driverguide.com. If you use Acer's site, be patient, their site isn't the easiest to navigate, but the drivers are there.
