Ummm, I was playing league on my acer predator and half way through the game the controls stopped working, and we lost the game, yada yada, anyway, after the game, the keyboard wasn't working and I didn't know what to do, so I restarted the laptop and through the restart, it got stuck on a black screen and won't turn off, the fan is working and the keyboard lights are on, but I can't even force shut down.
 
Try this...

1. Turn the laptop off (not sleep or hibernate but off).
2. Connect an external monitor to the laptop.
3. Turn on the external monitor.
4. Turn on the laptop.

NOTE: You may have to press an "external monitor" button. Could be the f4 button or a button with two monitors on it, for the external monitor to work.

If you can see fine on the external monitor, then your attached display, or the ribbon cable that connects it, are your problem.

If you can't see on the external monitor at all, or the problem occurs on the external monitor as well, then it is probably the graphics card/GPU that is the problem, which may require the motherboard be replaced.
