hey C5hieldz,

this only happens when the power supply is connected ? strange indeed.

does it happen when its on battery only ? what about power supply without battery attached?

head over to >> http://support.lenovo.com and update all the drivers that is applicable for your unit, including bios as well.

if you made recovery disc, use it and see how it goes.
