Hi,

It may be an issue with the display itself cause by dying pixels. Do these following test to be sure and contact Acer Support as soon as you find out that it's really the display and if it's still under the factory warranty for a repair.
- Boot the laptop into BIOS, if the gray shadow is till present that's an indicator that it's a display problem.
- Connect an external monitor and see if the same problem will persist.
- Lastly, also do try to uninstall/reinstall the graphics card driver.
- Go to Device Manager and uninstall the graphics card driver (AMD or NVIDIA)
- Open Programs and Features and uninstall anything related to your graphics card (AMD or NVIDIA)
- Download and install the latest driver from the manufacturers website.
- Here are the links:
NVIDIA: http://www.nvidia.com/download/index.aspx
AMD: http://support.amd.com/en-us/download
- Reboot the laptop for all the changes to take effect.
