I just recently got a t42 and its been working great until yesterday when all of the sudden it started having blackouts at random intervals. At first I thought it must be a screen problem so I tried connecting it to a secondary moniter, but when I did this I had the same issue. It blacked out on the secondary screen shortly after booting up also. It also will blackout when I move it or when I close it and open it again or when I try to run a movie or play a game. Any help would be great.

You can thank the RoHS idiots for that with their bad fantasies about lead-free solder.
Some people managed to 'bake' the motherboard in their oven and get another couple of days/weeks/months out of it, but they all fail again.
Getting another motherboard is the easy way out.

The successor T6x series solved the issue as they built those machines very tough with even more metal frames...
Replace the motherboard is a good choice...But most importantly, always hold those T4x s with both of your hands!
