Re: USB Problem With IBM Laptops Suddenly Shuts Itself Down

When you say "anything" do you mean any device, or is it one particular device? If you have a couple of USB devices and they both shut the machine down, the odds are you have a problem on the system board. If one device works and the other shuts the machine down, the problem is the device.
