I'm probably going to bet that a Gateway Service Center is going to be the only place that will try it; unless you can find somebody local that will do it for you.

Laptop: MSI GT70 2OC-059us | i7-4700MQ | 16GB | GTX 770m | 500GB SSD / 750GB HDD | 17.3" | Win10 Pro
Desktop: 4690k | 12GB g.Skill RipJaws | GTX 970 | 520hx | Z87X-UD4H | Corsair Vengeance C70 | Corsair H110 | Acer 25" | Acer 22" | Win10
Mobile: Samsung Galaxy Note 5

Well, you could take it into Best Buy and have it shipped out to one of our SVCs to determine the estimate for repairs.

Granted they are kind of expensive, but then again I don't know what a small local shop would charge. *shrug*
