Re: Replacing G570 fan - Noisy fan that runs most of the time even though laptop is cool

[ Edited ]

I have the same problem with my G570.

I bought it in May this year and it was fine for 3 months. Then I had the problem with fan. It is constantly on and running at full speed. So battery life is terrible. (1hr)

The laptop has been sent to service now. The 1st time they replaced the fan. When I got it back and turned it on, the problem was still there. So I called the service centre.

They went through a bios check and several other things to rectify it but it still didn't work. So it was sent back again. This time they replaced the HDD and the mainboard. I have had the laptop back for 2 weeks now and yesterday the problem started again.

I also noticed another problem when I got it back the last time. The touchpad no longer works properly. The scroll part on the right doesn't work, neither does the pinch to shrink or enlarge bit.

It looks like I'm going to have to call the service centre again but I'm not holding much hope that this will be solved.

G570 - noisy fan is always running

I have the G570 Notebook. And I am unhappy :-(

The fan is active all the time. I have nothing special running, only showing the desktop.
Is there anybody who can confirm this?
This is really uncool!! :-(

Re: G570 - noisy fan is always running

Can you please update your signature with your bios version because it looks that there are unpublished version around ...

 

Is any of you can monitor or control  the fan(s) from os side or elsewhere ? 

 

Now I am investigating on current BIOS ACPI DSDT issues may be related ie :

 

  Check _CRS (Current Resource Settings).                 25 passed, 1 failed                    
Check _WAK (System Wake). 4 passed, 1 failed, 5 warnings  

 

feel free to pm me if you wanna help

Re: Replacing G570 fan - Noisy fan that runs most of the time even though laptop is cool

hiber is so old a horible way of doing things in windows 7.
there tons of wake problems with it.
it however should not effect fan speed and when it throttles up.
if anything when hiber comes on it under sleep state allready.

to adjust the fan you click passive under windows power settings that will lower the cpu before clock before fan spin up.
however sandys do run hot and i cap the top end with the max cpu percent setting say like 86% but you need to figure that out yourself with cpu id and a load on it so it not under speedstep.

the temps i saw where really low for a notebook and i say that fan is really working to much.
a bios patch woont fix that.
you need to adjust the fan with a program.
cpu id has a temp program that shows voltage and temps HW.
lenovo really went oberboard on the fan settings because sandy bridge is a very powerful cpu that if you were to lay on a bed say and put a heavy load on would cook the laptop inside.
there heat protection for the cpu but not everything in the laptop and thats the problem with these sandys as they can make alot of heat.
the dont run any cooler either on idle then the last gen or any of the 45nm.
they do make use of the power far better but some laptop makers dont want to take a chance with a sandy cooking parts in the laptop from the heat they can produce so the went crazy on the fan speed.
all the G5 series have this problem even on amd.
the B series dont.
the fan itself might not lower any more due to it input voltage selection the brand and make of the fan might be the real issue here.
a bad selection.
so if you try to lower the fan speed it wont work because the very design of that model is a higher rpm model.
