Sounds like the mother board thinks the processor fan isn't running at all, or not fast enough. Can you verify that the fan is running, by sound and the movement of air through the vents? If no fan/air movement then you should address that fan problem that your thinkpad has developed.
In case it's the fan and you decide to crack it open yourself? Let us know?

Laptop shuts down during Windows XP install


When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is the problem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are clogged with dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed air to do this.

Laptop shuts itself down after 20 minutes.


Check the cooling fan. Not just the fan itself but all the airways and metal fins that it blows air over. This often requires removal of the fan itself. PC and laptop fans act like little vacuum cleaners!

You could have a faulty fan and/or dust clogging the fan and heat-sink assemble. This is the most likely cause of the laptop shutting down. When the CPU overheats it goes into thermal shutdown and if this problem is not fixed, eventually the CPU will fail.
Check the fan to see it it spins freely and check if the fan works when the laptop is powered up.
If the fan and heat-sink is ok, then to give the laptop addition cooling then purchase a laptop cooling pad and place the laptop in this pad (These pads have cooling fans and helps cool the laptop).

Satellite a85-s1072 amber light blinking on and off


try running it without he battery, check if the fan is working, could be an overheating problem.
Do you get any windows errors?
install spreedfan utility and let it read internal temperatures plus fan rpm(rounds per minute)
if it gives you a warning, the shut down, clean the intereior using compressed air only (bicycle/ball pump) to remove any inside dust or carefully disassemble the notebook + clean after you have read the manual and know which screw hold which parts.
when cleaning with compressed air, remove the lid for RAM+Harddisk+pull out the battery pack to ensure circulation! now you have made sure the fan isn't stuck with dust and can't hang... reassemble and boot up, look if fan is running...
still the prob: do come again, please
reboot and wait for error...

MY laptop some times shut down itself ecspeciali when i'm on the net When i swich it on again i'v got a message the windows was not shut down properly because of securyti reason probably some body was...


Usually when it shuts down for no reason it is overheating. Very common. There error happens when windows doesn't do everything the normal way when it shuts down such as save all your settings and so on. When it restarts it finds an error and you get that message. Again very common.

With your hand feel the bottom of the latop. If it feels hot not just slightly warm thats your problem. You need to have the cooling fan and passages cleaned out. You can use compressed air or a vacuum to do this. It takes very little dust on some models to make them overheat. If you have pets or use gas to heat your house or use the laptop near the kitchen you may have to do this about twice a year.
