Having problems with your Gateway M-6843 Notebook ?

My Gaetway M-6843 used to power up, then turn itself off in about 1 hour of use, then after a half an hour, and now it will not even start up. No fans, activity, etc. All that goes on are the power and bluetooth LEDs, but only for less than 1 sec. The Laptop still charges though...I am really at a loss here, maybe someone has an idea
