I rely on Windows Server 2008R2. I use the Windows 7 64Bit drivers.
I love the X61. It's been the best notebook computer I've ever had.
A recent driver update (manually downloaded & installed) has caused a few problems. I did several updates, so I do not know which driver has been the start of my problems, which are:
I can't use the System Update program since it only gets as far as 10% and then gives me an unknown error. I reckon it has something to do with the fact that it can't comprehend that I'm using Windows 2008R2.
Has anyone else had any similar issues? Can anyone cast any light on this for me please?

Okay, after several hours of testing and retesting, it seems clear that the majority of problems seem to come from the BIOS update.
I obviouly cannot install the updated BIOS from within Windows 2008 Server, so i have now downloaded the Bootable ISO and going to see if this makes a difference to the restarting/shutting down problem.
The biggest headache has been the sudden switching off, which I now realise is as a result of the overheating, which is as a result of the BIOS update
Once I have done the update I will review and update this post.
