Help!!!- Gateway w340ua. Brightness flickers and comp shuts off

\015 I have a Gateway w340ua. The battery needs to be replaced, however other issues are now prevalent. The computer feels like it is getting hot underneath and the fan goes on an off pretty frequently. Sometimes the screen brightness will flash from bright to a darker resolution on and off for no reason at completely random times. Occassionally the computer will shut off on its own. Help!\015
