Lenovo ThinkPad R500 shuts down unexpectedly

Hello and welcome to another post from Non-Stop Biztalk,

Got a brand new Lenovo ThinkPad R500 a couple of days ago. The laptop, equipped with Microsoft Windows XP SP3 kept shutting down unexpectedly. Apparently, this problem was caused by one of the windows services. First, I adjusted the recovery settings on each of the following services to be on failure, Restart the Service: for RPC, DCOM Server Process Launcher, COM+ System Application and COM+ Event System. The problem disappeared and a couple of days later on it came back to strike once again. Afterward, I applied the fix provided in this post. Now, it seems that everything is working properly.
