Hi Scott My ThinkPad T500 runs for about 10 min and then shuts down. I tried removing the battery and using a different power adapter but that didn't help. I am running Win 7 . Could you shed some light on this. Thanks for your time. warm regards dak

I would recommend removing and reinstalling the processor, renewing the heatskink thermal interface material. If that doesn't help then unfortunately it sounds like the motherboard may be defective. Let me know what you find, Scott.

I would use HWMonitor and Prime95 to see if the CPU overheats before tearing the system apart. Just my 2 cents :)
