    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

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