Question about Lenovo ThinkPad T61 Notebook
There's a lot that could have happened here. Here's the home support page online for your thinkpad.
Here's a link to a support solution that related to the lock up that will help you check the hardware.
You could also use the device manager in windows to have a look for problem hardware, and use the event viewer to check to see if any application errors or warning are reported in the logs for the time it froze on you. Both of those could help to diagnose the source of the issue. See info here and here. ( or search for similar for vista).
Additionally, many of these sorts of problems are related to malware that has been installed on your system, usually without your knowledge or permission. As a precaution, I recommend you work through the first four steps of these malware removal protocols to set a baseline for further troubleshooting steps.
If you have no luck after following those links, write back and include your OS and the results of your efforts and we'll be happy to help you sort it out.
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Restart the computer,
update the drivers for that device,
uninstall the device from device manager and reinstall it using the manufacturers .exe;
"Add new hardware" and let the PC scan for changes...
