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.

Check their site for contact info.

They should be able to tell you where a local Authorized Service Technician is.

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*
