Default GTA place that will fix a laptop ?

Hey guys, my Gateway 6860 decided to give me some trouble and I'm having problems turning it on. Not sure if something didn't fry while gaming, cuz it gets insanely hot. I forced restart while gaming, cuz my game froze while loading, happened few times before. But this time laptop has problems turning on. Screen does not turn on, laptop appears to be turning on, however not sure what state it is in, cuz I hear no windows login sound. If I run on battery, it will turn itself off within 5 seconds of trying to turn it on.
I tried external monitor, but nothing was detected.
Need some good local guys for this thing :)

Warranty? Try calling Gateway support before spending money on a repair guy. If not covered, still call in to ask for any tips.

My System Specs


Pacific Mall. Notebook Outlet. They cleaned my cousin's Compaq laptop which he gave me to me. I would've cleaned it myself but I couldn't get it open and access the fans and heatpipes.
