So I've had an Apple G5 for exactly 1 year and a week. My warranty ran out 5 days ago and of course my computer died yesterday. What to do? (MI)

After a recent move I set it up and upon trying to turn it on, it's totally bonked, doesn't even boot. After doing much research
and attempting the fixes, I've realized it's proably a major problem, logic board became unseated or somesuch. I'm an idiot for not buying Applecare. But the question is should I take it to the Apple Store and plead my case? My credit card was charged one year and 5 days ago for this, which is when the warranty starts. Or should I take it to an independent who is more likely to take pity on me and help me out?
