T60 shuts off

#1 Post by burns334 » Thu Jan 16, 2020 10:16 pm

Hello board, been gone a long time but need to tinker with a T60 of mine and get some help. The T60 model 1951-46U just shuts down randomly, everything is fine and boom, black screen. The CPU gets pretty warm while charging but is fine on battery power, with TP fan control I would run on speed 7 and usually have no probs. I am thinking motherboard, any thoughts out there?
