Re: Y50 Big fan pulsating and clicking

2014-10-20, 17:08 PM

I just noticed it today (one of the first cold days of autumn). It makes me think that if you turn the heat up in your house you will make the sound go away (one solution).

 

They should be able to just rewrite the controller for that fan, I don't believe they would push an update to us that just had it running at a slightly higher speed.

Solved! See the solution

Y50 Big fan pulsating and clicking

2014-07-22, 8:30 AM

Hello lads,

 

I have a annoying poblem here. The big fan from my Y50 is ticking and having a pulsating workload during low temperatures. When the laptop gets a little more warm when doing a job it starts spinning faster and makes no clicking noise, but when idling it spins very slowly and in pulses and has that anying clicking sound. Please help..!!

I am on Windows 7 and energy manager 1.5.0.16.

The small fan is ok...spining constantly and noiseless.

 

I7 4700 and GTX860m 4GB Maxwell

Best advice would be to call Lenovo Tech Support.

 

Click on the support link above and follow directions for Ideapad series support.

Dear MontesJr,

 

I have two Y50s and both have the same issue. Is it now solved on your notebook?

Thank you for the quick answer. I will update here if there are any news. Have a great holiday! Please tell here what the support says. I think the problem can easily be solved with a BIOS-Update.

My second Y50 had the same problem. I returned them both. There are some other people in the German support forum with the same issue. But there is still no fix and it seems that Lenovo doesn't care.

Same problem here. Clicking noise when laptop idling. Stops when big fan starts really cooling. While I am not that annoyed by the sound I would like to know if it is damaging to the hardware because this would make a difference of course...
