    It will become a hand me down to some family member if it gets fixed, but my question is as to whether the repairs will fix the issue or might there be failure in the gpu/mobo.

    It is a 4710hq/980m 8gb.

    The battery died and I ran it for months even after it started shutting down randomly. At first it would shut down after hours, then at the end ...minutes/seconds.

    The install is obviously corrupted and that's contributing.

    Every bit is original parts ...everything is over six years old.

    If I get a new battery and SSD [EDIT: and power brick], what is the likelihood it will last long enough to be worth the cost?

    EDIT: Temps were fine.

    Well, are you able to get into the BIOS, or does it just not power on?

    Perhaps overheating? My GT70 is over seven years, just the GTX 680 has died. Runs perfectly via Intel HD 4000.

    It powers on last I check, it just powers off instantaneously at random points. It has gone to repair mode. It has powered off during boot.

    Temps have never been an issue, everything was in the 70s at worse.

    It doesn't power on anymore.

    Make sure the power button/cable is all good, if no power at all, the MOBO is probably dead.

    Take out the GPU, see if that helps.
