Why my laptop shuts down on its own?

I have a problem with my macbook A1181.

When the laptop is running, if I press hard the keyboard or the case on the left or right, my computer shuts down immediately.

At the same time, if I press hard the keyboard, the Shutdown window pops up asking me if I want to shutdown the pc and in some cases after some seconds it shuts down on its own.

I can't use my laptop anymore.

Any suggestions?

Thanks! This website is terrific!

double-check if the top case cable connector is well seated in his socket.

Open up the case and see if somethings loose. Also try verifying your HDD in disk utility.
