Angry Rain Gutter Overflows

Heres one for rain gutter people. My front gutter is about 50' long
but it's like it's low in the center, during heavy rains it runs over the edge, (instead of going to the ends where i have drains). Is there a way to raise that section? I don't want to put a drain where it overflows, because thats rite by the front door. Would like to keep it one gutter with no drains in the 50' section. Need your help.

The idea about using a level i never thought of. But i was up there
yesterday cleaning out the gutters, and seen it was nailed to the rafters, it was probly put up like that because the nail wasen't broken. Is it possible to remove the nail, and some how raise that section up an renail it useing the level to make it level?
Thanks for any help.

After further review, how do i get the nail out?. If i can get it out
how do i raise the gutter?, i was thinking of useing a floor jack, with a long 2x4 to jack up the rain gutter, and renail it. It looked like the gutter top went under the starter shingles, is it nailed under there?
