LEGION Y520 BEEPING FAN NOT WORKING (extreme cooling does nothing)

2021-04-08, 10:52 AM

Hi,

 Device legion y520-15ilkbm

My laptop had gotten quite dusty after around three years so I went to clean it.

 

After cleaning it and turning the device back on I noticed it was beeping (from the motherboard probably) 

 

I went through a few tests taking out rams battery, vantage hardware test (was all clear for CPU ram etc) 

I went to turn on extreme cooling in the lenovo sense menu but nothing happened. 

I blew the fan using a compressed can to clear out a lot of dust on the blade I assumed this caused the laptop to break. I now replaced the fan myself (used the correct part matching part number and voltage) the fan still does not turn with extreme cooling and the laptop continues to beep

 

Here is a recording of the noise/tune/beep it is very quiet

 laptop turns on and seems to work fine, have not used it since the beeping out of fear of overheating. 

 

Can I please get some advice regarding this

Hello @Deadblue,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

Are the fans still spinning?

Can you try checking if you can update the BIOS of the machine?

https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/legion-series/legion-y520-15ikbn/downloads/driver-list/component?name=BIOS%2FUEFI

Kindly enter the serial number of the machine so you can get the correct BIOS update file.

Hope this helps.
Regards,
Jack_Lenovo1

My 

MTM IS 80YY0022UK

 

I have tried the BIOS update twice but both failed and said the device is using an equivalent "version of ROM"

 

I have also just noticed that the SATA SSD inside my device is not being read.

 

The fans are not spining
