I've seen this problem after searching around...since way back in October 2007
 
 don't know why it could take so long to fix.... we are a few months away from 1 year with the problem.
 
ordered mine in early october 07.

I'm in the same boat as Bender and since they replaced my planar board BioShock doesn't crash.
Nor does Crysis (the one game that wouldn't ever start up past the intro screen with two sticks of memory).

I received my T61p on March 28th.

I have run 3dMark06 yesterday (the trial version), and it ran fine. Should I run anything else to make sure I don't have the problem explained it this thread?

EDIT: The Crysis SP demo works fine.

Well, your machine has 4 gigs of RAM and that inevitably means 2 DIMMs. This in turn implies that you may well have the issue described in this thread, although that is not predetermined - there are folks who never suffered from this problem.

So your options now are:
1) Cancel, wait for Lenovo to fix their laptop and order it again when it's back in shops (may be in 1 week, may be in 2 months, dunno, Lenovo is veeery unresponsive on this thread when it comes to dates).
2) Not cancel, get your toy, maybe learn that you have the issue and then you'll have to get your laptop to the Lenovo tech service to fix your hardware (probably replace motherboard).
