What makes you think the CPU fried? Intel CPUs are thermally protected & are almost impossible to burn out. I suggest you do some troubleshooting before running out & buying a new CPU.

I think it overheated and fried it because it's not a virus. i have the battery plugged in while i turn it on and it shuts off so it isnt a virus or a battery problem...

I dont know a lot about laptops what else is there to troubleshoot about a laptop?

also.... the problem was that everytime even with my laptop plugged in. It only stays on for about 30 seconds and then shuts off. The first time it happened i noticed it when i was playing a video game on it and it got really choppy and starting shutting off ever since. Im not sure what to do.

You can NOT overheat an Intel CPU to death. LIke I said, they are thermally protected. What that means is if they get to a certain "trigger" temperature, they simply shutdown BEFORE overheating/burning out. It's a built-in protection mechanism. Try blasting some compressed air into the cooling vents...the heatsink is probably all clogged with dust.
