it certainly seems like a batch of bad planar boards on the production line.

there seems to be a commonality in this number here.

42W7653

and 1 or 2 with similar along that range posted here.

42W76xx


T61P - 6459-CTO - T7500 2.2Ghz - 4G DDR2 RAM - NV Quadro FX 570M 256mb - 160G 7200 rpm - WSXGA+ 15.4" - Vista Ultimate 32bit

Mine is 42W3920 and had this problem before my planar board was replaced.
So it may vary more than the other P/N.

ThinkPad T61 6460-DAG

affected

extremely unstable, linux/win xp affected > HW issue

only 3D applications are killing the laptop time by time

file operation + 3D application runnin = reboot

guuys this is SILLY, this laptop never had a chance to pass the HSIT(hardware software integration) test if I were the tester in that team

IBM T43 was the last Thinkpad :(

I also have 42W7653 and suffer from shutdowns with 2 dimms installed
 
Two hours ago I upgraded to new BIOS and to my surprise no shutdowns any more with 2 dimms. Has anybody same experience?

I received my t61p with bios 2.12 on 3/18.  Updated to 2.14 and have the same BSOD with running the graphics test under PC Doctor5.  Mine apparently needs no games to make it reboot.

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

All,
 
Engineering is looking into the planars under FRU 42W7653 - I hope to have an answer soon, perhaps next week.
 
Grimmeh,
 
I believe you, when you say you are having trouble on the T60p, but the systems are different and the update would not be the same.  (I've not heard these issues widely attributed to the T60p) These discussion threads have been very focused on the T61p.  Would you be willing to let us take a look at your system?  
 
Webdtc, Chimp_on_a_T61,
 
The update is released as revised parts under a new part number, and these uplevel parts will be used to resolve systems on which the symptoms manifest under warranty.  There are many things that could potentially go wrong in a PC, and  as individuals when we know about a particular possibility, it certainly ratchets up our anxiety about it, so I do understand your question.
 
I think we need to address our customers who have the outstanding symptoms that can be resolved by the revised parts just released, determine changes / updates as needed for 42W7653 to cover those.  I'm sure we will monitor this closely and consider further actions as necessary overall.
 
Thanks again.
