Acer Aspire 5552 won't stay on

  1. Hey guys, I'm pretty much a noob at this.
    Long story short... My acer aspire 5552 will not stay on. When I turn it on I have to press on a certain area if not multiple areas. Before I had opened it and cleaned out the fan it use to overheat like crazy it used to hit about 90 degrees I'm wondering if that has ruined something?

    Please help!
    Thanks in advance

    First of all. Why do you have to hit certain area or for that matter. Multiple areas. It may still be running to hot. Or something was damage when you put in back togather. If it is running to hot . It may need new thermal pads.

    When I cleaned my fan out I checked the temp and it came down to 40 degrees
