I bought Compaq presario laptop on April 2006. Getting OFF after 5min turning on. I have no insurance bought with it. The repair man said, it cannot be mended! Do have the right to claim anything because it is not even 3-years yet?

Re: Turning off after 5 min starting
Sorry to say but the law in UK only gives you any form of guarantee for 1 year under the 'Sale of Goods Act'. Unless there was a free extended Warranty from the manufacturer then you do not have a claim.

Check to see if you are getting power from your power supply to charge your battery if you are most likely it was dropped or was jolted take back covers off memory cover make sure memory sticks are in proper seat also check plugs that go to modem hard drive etc it may be as simple as that if not call compaq it should be under warranty you can remove drive if your concerned about privacy good luck let me know if this helps!
common problem,power cord gets pulled on accidently,causes plug inside computer to pull loose from the motherboard.will need to disassemble,then usually just touching the connections with a soldering iron to remelt them is enough to fix it,leave this to qualified tech.or if under warranty then send for repair hope this helps ,aloha from maui todd0708
Well, there can be many factors. I'm sure that you have tried power cycling all devices. Major culprits of disconnections for WAP is bluetooth devices or being too near refrigerator. This are the source of magnetic interference. Try using the Compaq very close to WAP (wireless access point) to see if you can reproduce the problem.
Well oviously when you dropped it, it had done alot of damage. There is defenently something in there that needs replacement. I can't acctually see the inside of your laptop so i don't know what. Go see a computer pro.
