It sounds like a thermal shut down when the processor over heats,one thing it might be is that the heat sink is not seated properly on the processor.When removing the heat sink make sure you have thermal paste to place between the processor and heat sink.That should give you a good starting point.

Contact GATEWAY, and get them to fix your laptop.
The fan is designed to run at "full-speed" when you first turn it on, and then there are temperature sensors that slow the fan down, to minimize noise, while the computer is "cool" enough that the fan does not need to run. The sensor is malfunctioning, and is not turning-on (or turning-up) the fan when the computer gets "warm".

Assuming you have already tried the power adaptor and that is ok and the charging port is not loose, I think the problem may lie in overheating. The CPU will stand up to 90 degrees c but the graphics chip, which is cooled by the main fan as a secondary consideration will not.
You should remove the inspection hatch (I think on the gateway models there is a larger hatch under the laptop) and see if there is any build up of dust or debris around the cooling fan. heatsink and radiator / vents. If there is, remove it with a paint brush or hoover.
If this does not resolve the problem/ or the fan is clean, remove each ram module in turn and try booting.
If there is still no signal, try it on an external monitor, if you get a picture, the issue is with a failed screen / inverter or VGA cable. If you do not get an image, I'd stick with my original thoughts that the graphics chip has been damaged
