Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad R32 2658 Notebook ?

Restart problem IBM Thinkpad laptops. After clicking the restart command in Windows, the machine goes into shutdown mode and just hangs there. The power is still on but the reboot does not happen. I have seen this on more than just one laptop so there must be an issue. Any clue?

I had this happen on my IBM t43p. It is probably due to a program running in the background or a faulty driver. The problem in my case was a bad TPM driver. Here's what I did:

Windows XP Freeze at Shutdown with IBM Laptop: I had this problem while\015\012setting up an IBM T43p with XP Pro from the IBM Product Recovery disks.\015\012After much frustration I found the problem was a bad driver. In Device\015\012Manager>System Devices I uninstalled "Atmel TPM legacy device," a\015\012Trusted Platform Module driver. The T43p would then shutdown and\015\012restart without a hitch.
