T60 Freeze

After about 3 years my T60 start to freeze,and in order to wrok again I need to restart the system.

 

I sent my notebook to Lenovo and today I received it, they change the motherboard, but the netbook freeze again... :-(

 

 I read all the post about "Freeze" but it didn't solve the problem.

 

Any new suggestions ?

 

Thanks

Did you try to reinstall the OS?

Re: T60 Freeze

System: Windows XP SP3

Type: 2007-5TG

 

I didn't reinstall the OS because I read in all the post in this forum that reinstalling don't solve the problem.

 

I write another information: my notebook is 3 years old and the batteru is death. I tried to use the notebook with and without the battery but it always freeze.

 

Another things: I found crazy that with the battery death is impossible to update the bios to the last version...!! I'm sure that this don't solve the problem because a couple of month ago I update to the last bios but now I can't to reinstall an old version....!!!

I think you should reinstall the OS if you can, just to make sure the OS is not the problem.

 

Otherwise, send the laptop in for another round of repair.

Re: T60 Freeze

I tried to reinstall windows xp but when I start to install it (with a win XP cd) the installation windows program tell me that don't found the HD.

 

However the HD is OK because if I switch on the notebook with the installed windows xp version  it works and windows starts...

Re: T60 Freeze

you need to switch the hdd mode from ACHI to Compatibility under the BIOS menu, if you are using the aftermarket XP installation discs.
