as i have been scrolling through these forums it has become obvious to me that lenovo's G series is quite notorious for having fan problems. I for one am quite upset that lenovo hasnt taken steps to fix these issues for their customers. For me other than the noise my laptop works perfectly fine, but it is very limiting as i have class and whenever i bring in my laptop neighbors often tell me that it is extremely loud. now, as i do not doubt lenovo's credibility (IBM) i would very much like to see this problem solved. Who is with me?

It may help if you can share some additional details so we can better advise you...
1) If the fan is making noise other than the sound of moving air - like any kind of rattling, grinding, etc, then the fan needs to be replaced - contact service.
2) If the fan is just blowing air, but it louder than you would like it to be, we need some information to see if the fan is being controlled as we would expect. I don't see a lot of people complaining aboug G770, although we have seen discussions on earliers 15" models like G560 and resolved those through BIOS updates.
In your case, please try using some temp & fan measing software CPU-Z or speedfan. What RPM is the fan running when it is too loud for you? Are you on battery or AC operation? What is the reported system temp when the fan is running loudly?
If you open task manager and the performance tab, how utilitized is your CPU? What tasks are going on? If the system is being used actively, and the temps are elevated, we would expect the fan to run fast. That would be normal. If the temps are low, and the system isn't being used actively and the fan is still running fast, then that might be an issue.
Lastly, are you still running the factory windows or did you reload the system? Are you using the power management software? What setting - Max perf, max battery life, etc?
