Re: it turns off within 5 minutes of it turning on
Yes, this could be caused by overheating. If this is due to overheating, it's most likely that the processor has burnt up. You will need to take it in for a professional hands-on diagnostic in order to find the exact cause of the problem. Overheating can cause several different issues within a machine.

Turn off computer for 5 minutes. Turn on computer and let it boot to desktop. Click on START, click on COMPUTER, right click on C drive. Panel will indicate PROPERTIES at the bottom of this panel. Click on it. Look at the top of this next panel and click on TOOLS. Do a clean up.. Then under tools click on the 1st of 3 options shown. Check both boxes. Wait another panel will come up saying it will perform this function on next restart. Click OK. Restart/reboot computer, wait for all 5 steps of this program to complete. The boot procedure will continue when this is complete.

Sounds like a harware issue for sure, You know that you have one issue with the bad display. Since it stayed on while running disk check - which doesn't require much ni the way of graphics - it makes me think that the shutdown issue relates to the failing video interface.
Some laptops will allow you to upgrade the video, but I don't honestly know if this is one of them. If so, this is where I would start looking.
I'm not sure if this will work, but worth a try. It appears that your power up settings have got messed up somehow.
Put it all back together, batteries and charger. It will try to boot after a fashion. Just give it a couple of minutes to try and do what it should. If it still hasn't come on properly, press and keep pressed the on/off button until the laptop turns off (about 5 seconds). Leave it a couple of minutes then try and turn it on again normally.
After this, I'd need to be able to look at what's happening to help any more.
Scanning computer to eliminate malwares, spywares and the viruses from your laptop.
2- Repairing and cleaning Windows registry.
These two tips are found to be very helpful to fix the laptop shutdown problem. Almost all the computer users surf internet which could result in viruses attacking your system. Some of these infections are really pesky and cause the machines to shutdown randomly.
The registry errors, however, are the internal errors and can become a cause of system crashes and freezes. The registry keys shall be in good health to keep a system perfect.
When I noticed my laptop keeps shutting down everytime, I tested the Intel Software Partner, RegInOut to fix the random shutdown problem with my laptop.
you question was still not clear. If I'm not wrong you mean to say after 20 mins your computer screen when black and you could not see anything, right ???
did you try to touch the power buttton to turn it on again maybe its in sleep mode.
Or you mean after 20 min..laptop still work but you hardly can see due to no light (back light )??
