I dropped a heavy item on my laptop and now it wont run for more than a few minutes

Q: I have a Compaq presario m2254 au laptop. It has an AMD Turion 64 processor and is 3 years old (has no warranty).

I have dropped a reasonably heavy object on top the keyboard of my laptop this morning. The laptop screen froze and became blurred. I tried working on it, but of no use. I then shut it down. After some time I tried starting it, I found that it will work for some time say approx – 5-8 minutes and then gets shutdown.

First I thought maybe the hard drive got lost, I tried keeping another hard disk, but the result was the same, it boots up, loads all icons in taskbar, I open firefox and browse a little and then suddenly shuts down. I tried the same with linux, where it behaves in the same manner.

I think my laptop has experienced some kind of shock, if this is the case is there anything i can do? Sending the laptop out for repair is expensive here.
