Re: T510 + i5 540M = terrible whine noise!

Well, I bought a Lenovo computer so they should fix it.
I have noticed that they dont give a darn about their costumers.

Hmm. Lets say that the CPU is the fault. What then. I still have 5 months of my warranty, will Lenovo fix the problem?

Whatever the problem is.  The laptop is still under warranty.  They are obligated to fix the problem or have it replace.

 

I feel for you.  I have a slightly different hardware issue, but the exact same customer service issue.

 

If anyone else has similar hardware and customer service issue, please feel free to pst me.

Re: T510 + i5 540M = terrible whine noise!

Its really annoying. We are here in a lenovo forum - so where are the lenovo officials answering our questions?

 

At the moment I think lenovo tries to help everybody with the default action "replace the mainboard". 

The problem is: all the replacement parts have the same whining noise issue..  

I think they are in a one way street - they already have the new models out with the new chipset/cpu without the noise - so why spent time on the old stuff?  

All the spare parts are from the same defective intel lot - i believe lenovo knows that but tries to help us with "we did something" than to tell us "everything we can do won't help you - so please make the best of it and never call again (and give us a top score for the fast mainboard substitution service) .."

 

As i mentioned - I had my mainboard replaced without any difference and I do not know anybody with a happy ending (regarding the substition).. In fact - the lenovo service was great - but the problem is still there. :-(

Re: T510 + i5 540M = terrible whine noise!

Same thing was with me you mentioned.
This is so frustrating that I was even unpleasant to the people working there, but I know I should not.
I would be happy with a same spec t420s with no noise. Thats what I want.
I bought the computer and am mailny in the livrary reading. This sounds isnt helping. The answer I got from Nyherja that is the dealer of lenovo in Iceland that I should just have headphones!!!
**bleep**??

I have a T410s that has a similar problem.  They were willing to replace with T420s.  But mine has the touch screen, more RAM and higher CPU.  They totally ignore that.

 

So, I mentioned of the fan problem.

http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/T400-T500-and-newer-T-series/T420s-Fan-noise-Issue/td-p/443569

 

Totally ignore that and counter with the same match my RAM and CPU speed as my previous, but can replace the touchscreen b/c they don't offer.

 

I want my money back, but she told me that it's not an option because we have passed the 21 days mark.

 

Too bad, you failed to meet your obligation.

 

I DO NOT want a lessor spec laptop with a lot of problems.

 

Give me my money back Lenovo!

qpnl. I sent you a message.

Regarding this problem I find it impossible for lenovo just to ignore this.

Re: T510 + i5 540M = terrible whine noise!

Not only did they replace my motherboard, they even downgraded my OS for no apparent reason. Had to wait like a month and change to get a copy of the pre-installed OS. Doesn't end there. They also replaced my DVD Drive!? lol I was like really? I told you where the noise is coming from and you do all this? lol smh ridiculous
