IBM i Series Thinkpad constantly shuts down

Archived from groups: comp.sys.laptops (More info?)

I have an IBM I series thinkpad but when I start it up, it comes on and
after a few seconds, shuts down the power. I can not even turn the
machine back on usually - power button is dead- but after a day or two,
it does come back and this repeats.

Obviosly a hardware problem but how to diagnose, and if too complicated
- where is the best/cheapest way to deal with it (am in SF area if that
matters)?

Thanks!

    Are you starting with battery? If yes try to take out battery and start
    only with AC adapter.
