Question about IBM ThinkPad T23 2647 Notebook
I have a Thinkpad T23 and when I restart the laptop, it will turn off half way through the boot. Same thing happens if I try to reboot immediately. If I wait 20 minutes and then reboot, it will work.
Although not as often, it will sometimes turn off serveral minutes after boot.
Any idea what is going on?
My guess would be ;-
A power supply problem with the battery and/or power adapter
The most likely one.
The CPU is overheating and shutting down and if you wait a while and it will power it up again, it will then run for a while and shut down again.
This can be caused by a faulty fan (its not spinning and needs to be replaced) or the vents are clogged with dust (needs to be cleaned and you may need to remove the fan assembly to do this).
