IBM Thinkpad A21m lockups on external power

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

My thinkpad A21 is having serious lockups while operating on its AC or
DC external power adapter.  It runs ok on its battery.  If DC is
supplied to the external power plug, the computer runs fine up until
13.5 volts, then it starts to jam up.

Does anyone have any troubleshooting suggestions please?
