Thinkpad T61 went dark abruptly after startup

\015 Thinkpad T61 was running flawlessly upon shutdown. Upon subsequent startup, Windows Vista loaded normally with user logon, then received message "Installing 1 of 3 updates - do not shut down." Then the machine went dark abruptly -- no indicator lights and will not respond to power switch. Please advise.\015

Just had the same problem. Remove the battery pack and then put in back in. Worked for me.
Make system restore, or better reinstal vista from IBM image file, dont install any updates, go get windows 7 , and get rid out of vista.
