Re: shutting off

There are many things to cause this problem. It is a little bit tricky to find out what is causig the problem. Suggestion-1. If you can arrange spare HDD compatible with your laptop, connect it and install Windows. if this goes smooth..then replace the original HDD. Suggestion-2. If the above method repeats the problem. you should take the motherboard out and clean it with IPA [Iso propyle alcohol] solution. and fix it back this should solve your problem. Note: The second suggestion applies only if your laptop is out of warranty. Otherwise cotact your system vendor.

Go to the IBM WEB site to their support/download page and download the XP versions of the drivers you need for your model laptop.

IBM Think Pad T22 auto -shut down a few minutes

Try running it without the battery. Sometimes an IBM battery can develop a short and cause this. If it still does it without the battery, I'm afraid it's the power management chip on the motherboard, and the motherboard will need to be replaced.

You don't say what OS you run, but have you tried reinstalling your audio files? This will probably fix your problem.
If you run Windows XP, 2000 or 98SE, this link will download the correct drivers :
