Lenovo C730 Gaming PC GPU FAN STOPPED.

Hello, I just got the lenovo c730. I was using it yesterday and the GPU was running perfectly. But then my game's frame rate dropped really low and i looked down at my gpu and the fan wasn't spinning anymore. The drivers are up to date, the 2 wires connected to it are plugged in normally, i dont know whats wrong. It was working fine at first. The graphics card is RTX 2080. Someone PLEASE help me.

You should really start your own thread for this. If the fan wasn't spinning, the GPU likely stopped giving you performance since it was getting too hot. Restart, check to see if the fan is still not spinning the next time you open up a game.

How do I start my own thread? And do you mean just restart the computer? The gpu did get insanely hot but it didn't turn the fan on. I restarted and then went back into the game but the fan still didn't turn on.

"How do I start my own thread?"

You already did, don't worry.


So you restarted and it isn't kicking in? At all? If it's still under warranty, you should send it in to Lenovo so they can check it out.

Also, go to the battery in the taskbar, go to power option, click on change plan settings, change advanced power settings, and then click on "Processor Power Management". Make sure that the system cooling policy is on active.

Re: Lenovo C730 Gaming PC GPU FAN STOPPED.

There is 2 PCIe cables that I see and they're both plugged in. I can't tell if there are any other cables that might be disconnected that should be connected since the build is so compact. I'm not sure how to remove the GPU with this build either, which I want to. I also want to try to fix it at home and really don't want to wait for it to be sent to be repaired and back.

My build is really compact, how did he start with so much space. What is the access cover? When I remove the first cover, its way to congested to remove any screws. That's probably not the access cover though, which is the access cover?
