One possible solution that I have used. It sounds funny, but remove the battery and start it up using the electricity only. See if that lets it run. I have done that a couple of times with mine and it works.

The fan would have been my first suspect, the only thing I can think of is your BIOS may need to be upgraded, have you checked with IBM?

Hope this helps

Diplomat Gas Oven cuts off after few mins


The oven is probably overheating and shutting itself off to prevent damage/fire. If the cooling fan isn't running. Check/replace the thermostat that switches the cooling fan on.

I have IBM 300pl. And it has strange fan problem.


A fan that no longer works will cause a heat problem. While it may not cause a complete failure, it can cause some strange things to start happening. Your best best is to shut the PC down and remove the cover. Restart the PC an determine which fan(s) has stopped working.

At this point, you can either 1) contact IBM for a replacement fan or 2) remove the fan yourself and google the name and model number of the fan to find a direct replacement and either order online or 3) visit a local PC repair shop to buy a replacement fan that matches the defective one.

Buying direct from IBM will probably cost the most, but will be the exact type needed for your PC. Buying locally will probably be cheaper and faster, but may not be an exact replacement unless it is the same model, etc.

When calling IBM you'll need the computer model, serial number and any other identifying numbers on it for them to help you out.

Need help badly


Your unit may be overheating. That may be the reason that it will work when it is cool and shuts down when it heats up.
First,check and see if you feel a lot of heat under the laptop. Also look to see if the fan is working. You can probably hear the fan if it is working. If the unit is very hot and the fan is bad or intermittent, you need to have it service. Heat can cause more damage.

And if it not the fan, it may be the hard drive that is failing.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
