Drivers for IBM T30 can be download from IBM Official Support Select the Video Drivers according to the Operating System you have on your laptop Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.
Good Luck! Appreciate generously, if the solution could have been of any help! CreativeTECH
My IBM is about the same as yours and did the same thing. It turned out to be a CPU Cooling Fan. When you turn the laptop on, try to look in the air outlet port and see if the fan is turning. Another possibility is lint and dirt around the fan. The unit has a temperature sensor that will shut the machine down on a "Hot CPU" signal.
I'm sorry but by what you have explained you will need to take this machine to a pc repair store and have the AC/DC adaper on the laptop itself checked out just in case it has burned out. Also you have to have the power supply itself checked just in case feed back has damaged that too.
If you feel like doing this yourself you will need a mulimeter to test the voltage coming from the power supply and the adapter on the laptop motherboard.
Also, if this has just happened then leave the unit to cool down and try again as if the cooling fan has seized then the laptop will automatically shut down when it reaches critical temperature.
I would say there's an error with your fan. Running a computer without a fan is a very bad idea, so your computer probably shuts down to protect its self. Any problem with the fan is probably mechanical, so it would need to be fixed or replaced before you can use your pc.
Can you hear the fan running when you start up your computer? Does it make any unusual noises (clicking, grinding..)?
your mouse freezes; you should only use system restore as a last resort any virus/spyware you had in the past will come back turn the computer off(you may have to shut power off pressing on power button) when you see ibm logo, tap F8 key repeatedly until your hear beeps or a high pitched noise use option safe mode; use 'most recent config where my settings worked' option in safe mode(use up and down arrow keys to highlght, then press enter) If that does not work, try another(earlier) restore pt w system restore or install mouse drivers on a cd on another laptop, then place in cd rom and try to install it on the problem laptop if this is no good, you should really reinstall windows, back up impt docs, etc.(delete old partition) that model has a built in restore function by pressing F11 on startup, it will restore your piece to factory condition(along w spyware that comes along w the builtin ibm utility) I had the same exact laptop, the fan got noisy, so I replaced it w another that was from a good t30, guess what: "fan error" Ibm laptops are too problematic to work on thats why I use dell if you need more help, msg me or post on here -
