Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

Keeps crashing, windows not responding, i have had the laptop looked at & was told it needs a new motherboard. it was bought on boxing day last year by my ex partner, who doesn't have the receipt. i have tried both currys and pc world in llansamlet swansea but they will not deal with me because i didn't actually purchase it, also my ex doesn't remember exactly where he bought it. i am sure its under guarantee could u possibly see a way out of this mess please?
