Answers :

I have a compaq presario x6000. every time i place the laptop on my bed and turn it on it cuts off within 5 minutes. but when I place it on a desk and turn it on it does not cut off. do not understand why it does this.
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
