Re: Y50 Big fan pulsating and clicking

I have the exact same problem. I RMA'd my first Y50 because of it and the new one does it too.... I really wish Lenovo would address this issue. All they'd need to do is fix the bios so the fan stays on or off. It's a pretty easy fix "start fan at X temp, stop fan at lower temp"

The sound of my fan started changing over time.. can't really describe it
but it has become different.. hope it's not the beginning of the end...

C'mon, Lenovo! Fix this or you are getting a bunch of laptops returned for
nothing!

There's an entire thread of people on Notebook forums having this exact problem... it's really annoying when you have an SSD yet there are strange sounds coming from your machine.

Did anyone contact Lenovo support. Here in Romania there is a third party company that takes care of warranty and they have no clue about stuff like this. Someone from US or smth that can directly talk to support, please talk to them and at least give us an official answer.

I just bought my lenovo y50 UHD 1 week ago and I'm starting to notify an annnoying clicking. I think it appear when you have your high performance battery option. I need to know if this issue can be solved or if I send it back to lenovo and hope for no more clicking?

Hello,

 

the lenovo support in germany is contacted since 10 days. I hope they adressed this problem to the right department and there is someone working on it or its on a open issue list. It looks like a big problem for a lot customers all over the world but only a small task for a programmer to fix it. Hopefully there will be a bios update soon.

 

@ritch571: I know the noice is very annoying but i don´t think you will get the problem fixed by changing your Y50 to another Y50 because its a problem in general.

 

 

Lenovo Y50 FHD

16GB RAM

GTX 860m

256GB SSD

 

Produced:10.06.14

 

Best regards from germany

 

Sebastian

I can confirm an annoying clicking coming from my Y50. It comes and it goes.

 

Would be a shame if I have to return the notebook. I can live with the soso display, but the clicking would kill it for me as I really need silence!
