Legion Y520-15IKBN (80WK) fan is usually loud while only idle

2018-03-03, 13:14 PM

As I see this machine has three fan speed level. Let's just say low, medium, high. My machine is about 2 months old and since I bought and installed the system I cannot go on this loudness. I read several reviews before buy and lot of mentioned this but I thought it's not as noticeable as they say. Now I see that this is definitely annoying. No matter if the machine is just idling in a COOL (about 18-20°C room) environment the fan will switch to medium after a short time without no reason. Checking with AIDA I don't get it why is it neccesarry to spin up the fan when the hottest part is the CPU and it's running on 40-45°C. No activities, no stucked services or applications. A few idling opened application should not cause this and I'm sure it's not a hardware failure. Everything works properly. I guess it's just not finetuned.

 

So are there any way to tune the fan to not get a headache when just simply browsing? Or BIOS tweak? Or maybe an update?

Ridiculous. As I see I will never get an aswer what's the point of fan level 1 if the device basically runs on fan level 2 most of the time in an average environment. The only problem is that I paid for this  and it's collecting dust like a beast by this very clear issue. I cannot live in a fridge just because you don't investigate the problem. Nobody care about it. No support here. If I know this I would rather buy an Asus.

Sorry to bump this, but I was redirected here after mentioning this in a thread where the same issue persists in the Y530 brand too...

 

I would like to report that I am having this issue too. It started happening 4 days ago when I was visiting dropbox. I'm contemplating on updating my BIOS, but considering doing so killed my last laptop of the same brand (I'm using a replacement that was sent from Lenovo themselves) and the warranty is expired. I don't wanna risk killing my computer too... I've contemplating on taking my computer to my local Geek Squad, but I dunno if that will fix the problem either. Has anyone had any luck with fiixing this issue?

 

I have Lenovo Nerve Center and I have tried extreme cooling, but my laptop is currently having its fan go at is not as strong as the intensity of that setting, but still ambient enough for me to report it after this long...

It appears the problem has resolved itself on my end...

 

My laptop just update itself with one of Windows' latest updates: "2019-01 Cumulative Update for .NET Framework 3.5 and 4.7.2 for Windows 10, version 1809 for x64 (KB4481031)". Dunno if this was what fixes the problem, but it's worth a shot at least (or at least just restarting your laptop)...

It's cannot be the solution. I'm using Ubuntu too and the behaviour is the same.
