    IBM A22m laptop starts up but freezes before OS opens. Also, sometimes suddenly just cuts off.

    Have gone through reinstall of OS (Win2000), that haven't changed anything. Restarted through the safe mode, frozen at Windows starting up stage. Made sure all acessible parts are tightly in place.

    My laptop will start but after a few minutes it just shut off. I have replaced the fan and checked it inside and out. It doesn't matter if I am on the net, in a program or whatever. It just shut off and all I can do is turn it back on and within a few minutes it shuts down again.

Thinkpad A22m 2628-3SU laptop premature shutdown

OverheatingWhen the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermaloverload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is theproblem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith 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 surethe vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed airto do this.
