Re: Bring back fan control to the Legion Y740

If someone from Lenovo could respond to this so we at least know someone's seen this, that'd be great.

Re: Bring back fan control to the Legion Y740

I updated the BIOS last night, and even though i see a change in the Fans behavior with Fn+Q, fans still go to max after pressing the combination, but now I get a transitory icon on the screen showing max fans, pressing it again i see an icon showing what I think is QUIET performance and pressing it once more shows AUTO. 

Fans still go to max as far as I can tel. Are they not as fast as before? Is this what you guys noticed?

One thing that changed is the "conservation mode" though, is not working, battery still reaching 100% and stays there. Will post about it.

That doesn't exactly sound like what we've been experiencing. What bios are you on? Can you check by going into the bios and looking for the version number? Do you have the new version of vantage? Can you record a video of this?

Re: Bring back fan control to the Legion Y740

I just checked. The bios info is also visible on the Vantage app home window. It's AVCN19WWV1.09. In this picture i show the home screen of the Lenovo Vantage. 

 

I created a video but I need to upload it somewhere and then post the link, can't upload a video here directly.1562356329231.JPEG

Here's the video. Pressing Fn+Q is a lot more responsive than before. It used to take a few seconds for the fans to go up to MAX, and several seconds to go back to AUTO, but now it's very snappy.

You can activate sounds to hear the fans.

Re: Bring back fan control to the Legion Y740

From what I've heard, those are the Gaming, Quiet, and Auto modes. They're part of the new Vantage update we're getting. And yeah, that's the problematic behavior. What you're hearing isn't max fans from what I've been told.

I'm on the 15" model BTW.

Perhaps you could try to reinstall the new BIOS version. Lenovo Vantage installed a new folder called BIOS in the C: root directory, inside is the exe for the bios install.

Do you have the same Vantage app home screen? I've seen some pics with different colors and accents.

Re: Bring back fan control to the Legion Y740

I see, so they remove MAX fans and changed it for GAMING. Is your "Conservation Mode" working well? Sry for asking but that's another BIOS problem I found.

Re: Bring back fan control to the Legion Y740

My Y740 is hitting mid 90s while on Chrome, making it very uncomfortable to use. Please bring back the fan control.
