Urgent X230t problems

Hello all I love my lenovo x230t but i have ran into a major problem. I am currently writing this post in safe mode with networking enabled. But when i start windows normally it cuts the screen into lots of rectangles make a loud (TV screeching noise) and just shuts down and tries to boot up again. Ive tried without a battery in but wiht the ac cord and with a battery with no cord so its not a battery problem and its not a heat problems. Ive got my highschool starting tomorrow so a quick fix would be lovely.

Re: Urgent X230t problems

Have you tried setting the BIOS to disable CPU power management modes?
This isn't a common issue but you weren't the first to experience it, it is endemic to the CPU and on more than just Lenovo laptops:

It could possibly be solved with little headache.
