Re: Y50 Big fan pulsating and clicking

2015-02-16, 17:56 PM

I think for me this noise doesn't bother me as much, yea its noticeable when it's quiet, but I have a fan in my room so that drowns out most noise anyways. If this ends up being a much larger problem such as eventually damaging the fans, then yea I would get angry. But right now this laptop is too perfect for me for the chirping noise to detract from my experience. Just putting my opinion out there :) I do hope this does gets solved, for all of you who are annoyed by this problem and want it gone.

How loud is this noise? And is it ALWAYS making the noise or just when the laptop starts getting hot? The prices on the Y50 are getting lower and lower so I'm getting one soon and I'm curious. Honestly just a little clicking noise when playing games wouldn't bother me but for so many people to be posting about it I'm guessing it's pretty bad?

It is not that loud. Like the ticking of a clock. And it is not while gaming. My guess is, that it is only at the lowest speed level for the fan. Kind of as it cannot decide whether to run or not... As soon as the fan goes to the next higher level the ticking is gone. The moment you got some noise in your room (even a conversation) you propably won't hear the ticking either. But when you do some work in a quiet sourrounding you will hear it. And you might find it annoying then. Disregarding the ticking, you won't hear the laptop in idle state (which in general is really nice, but might make the ticking worse, since you don't have any other sounds). But I agree, you can't get much more and better hardware for that money right now.

The worst problem it's not the clicking noise, but the awful yellow colours for UHD display and the lowest colour gamut I have ever seen. I have the UHD version with 512 SSD and try to imagine having the clicking noise in idle when I try to do some coding, when the laptop it's not on so much load . If you don't mind the clicking noise of the fan in idle and the awful yellow colours for the UHD version, go for it. But be aware that the HD display version has also low contrast, and low viewing angles, so you should check the laptop first in the shop if you are bothered by these problems, to see how it seems to you.

 

Besides those problems the laptop works great, although I didn't tried high detailed graphics games on it yet.

Unfortunately for everybody our only weapon against Lenovo, is a negative marketing, I am already doing my part. My youtube video has more then 1.4k of views, probably I did some of this people to give up to buy this laptop. Everybody should do the same, just the poor lenovo customers access this forum. Lets show this issues in Youtube, Amazon, etc....
But after Lenovo give us a acceptable solution I will be happy to delete the movie.

Re: Y50 Big fan pulsating and clicking

I'm looking into this topic since page 2 ... stopped counting the MONTHS ... and it is still not fixed. What a waste of time, money, energy and only thing you know is that they finally know about the issue. Really ?! How about a fix or statement about it ? Is it fixable, does anyone work on this, or the reports are just to keep quiet and hope for solution.

 

The progress is this:

"These reports were reproduced. A case has been escalated up for a solution"

 

When the solution comes (if it comes at all), most of the laptops will be out of warranty in case there is a hardware problem and maybe a damaged fan b/c of the start/stop cycles - YES that clicking does wear the lifespan of the fan.

 

Also the new lenovo account system is a complete mess and automatically unsubscribed me from the topic, which means i'm not the only one like this - less attention to the topic - Good Job on that! Not to mention that if you don't enter the main page of the forum you'll not be able to find a way to connect your old account with the new one... so forget to login...

 

I'm tired waiting, dissapointed from what used to be Lenovo and will switch the brand. I'll support people like Esthevan who want's to save other people from this, sharing videos, commenting blogs, submitting reviews etc.

I'm done with this!

Im really angry, too. It's a shame for Lenovo. They should at least give us the possibility to control Fan Speeds, so that we could set the minimum Fan Speed too a higher level, which should fix this issue.

Also i don' think it would be hard to fix this issue.

It just seems like Lenovo is ignoring it completly.

I'm really sad, never thaught that would happen to me with buying a Lenovo Product.

 

We need to complain about this issue till it's fixed.

For example write them on Twitter (@Lenovo) and demand a fix!
