T420S - Random lockup then shutdowns

2013-05-27, 5:24 AM
So I read through the other very long thread about this on the T5 series TP's and tried turning off SpeedStep, but tonight, the same thing happened. It locks up for about 5-10 sec, then just turns off - no BSOD or any indication prior. I'm not doing anything heavy or where there's a heat issue - most of the time it's just sitting there a few minutes prior and then BAM - off it goes. Anyone at Lenovo have any clues about this? Everything is up-to-date. My wife has the Carbon and seems to be bullet-proof...this one, not so much. I'm running T420s CTO/Win8/8GB's RAM/Intel HD3000. Thanks!
