Re: T61P Graphic problems--random shut down, BSOD, Crash

Mark here's the plan.  An issue exists, that's identifiable, reproduceable and fixable.
I want you to set up a T6xp triage at selected repair depots around the world. Prep and train the
tech on the specifics of the case. Send out proactive recall notifications to all potentially effected T6xp
users and offer depot services as need. Hook up with management on getting a good PR spin on this, grab it by the
horns while you can. Go.

If Lenovo did this for their customers I would consider them the gods of notebooks.

I still would like to find out more about the fix and if there is any hope of a software fix instead of sending the laptop in.

Mark hasn't given up, in fact engineering are already testing/implementing fixes for this particular issue. He just has a massive workload placed on him almost constantly so give him some time.

I sent mine back, hopefully it will return in good condition. Despite the fact that it returned dead I can say that I am very happy with the speediness of their service. I got a box the day after I called and I got the laptop back two days after I sent it.

I'm sure Mark will post back when he is able to.  I'm eagerly awaiting any new news.

By the way, does anyone know if this issue is very widespread?  If I were to purchase another T61p what might be the chances that I get this issue again?

I was keeping up with this forum for a bit before when I was considering buying the t61p.  I did purchase it at the very beginning of March, and after using the computer consistently for the last 2 weeks or so, I must say I am very pleased and I have not been experiencing any of the problems mentioned here....this laptop is awesome.
 
So to answer your question, webdtc, i think chances are that you will still have a defective or problematic laptop is lower.  The only quip I have is that installing ubuntu has proven problematic, but after some research it seems that this is because of the video card and is kinda unavoidable.  As for vista, this thing runs it so smoothly that I'm fine using it as my main OS.  Anyways, I hope all of you get your fixes/replacements/whatever.

I don't know if the problem is related.
Did you do a memory test with a program like memtest?
Also did you try another stick of memory?
