I have a new (to me) thinkpad t60.
Often, if I unplug it while it is running, it re-boots and gives the message, "System has recovered from a serious error".
Why is this happening and what can I do about it?
XP Pro SP3, 3 gig ram
EDIT: I am waiting to have the store where I bought it fix this problem. Scheduling problems have made this take a long time. I will report the solution as soon as I am able to solve it. Thanks for all the responses.
EDIT: I took it back to the retailer to have him try and fix the problem. It is his opinion that the IBM power monitor / battery utility is the problem, as stated by Wil, below, and it has been removed. He then had no occurrences of the problem over a period of numerous tests. I am going to do some testing over the next 24 hours and will report what happens.
EDIT: The tech uninstalled the IBM power monitor / battery utility, as suggested and then updated all thinkvantage. His take is that it was caused by the BM power monitor / battery utility, as suggested. It seems fine. Thanks.
EDIT: Well, the store took the T60 14") back. He couldn't stop it from crashing. I have had it replaced with the 15" inch, still have all the software from Thinkvantage installed, and for the last few days have had no problem/. (How do you make the emoticon for fingers crossed? X?
