Re: Y50 Big fan pulsating and clicking

2015-03-15, 19:55 PM

@mmx1: when I turn off the nvidia graphic in bios, it is not used by windows anymore... so its working. My cpu temp is at about 40°C (for every core fluctuating between 34°C - 42°C according to Core Temp 1.0 RC60). I can not hear the fan when only windows is running or when I surf. (I can hear it running  while gameing... but this seems to be normal) 

 

@meshqis: ok, I would not call the sound i get while booting anything like going full gas instantly... I booted a view times now to investigate it... I also started a game (Duke Nukem Forever :) ) a view times... it is only noticable when you know that it is there (only when you know what the clicking sounds like)... for me it sounds smooth when starting... while booting and while starting games...

 

For Info: I am running Windows 7 64bit... I was trying to use the Y50 with Linux Mint at first, but I had some problems with the nvidia driver... (and with my gf, as she is used to use windows ;) ...) so I installed Windows... (still using Linux via Virtual Box... it works quite well ...)

@best87 OK, i will say in other words. For me, is the first computer to act like this. Notebook, or stationar PC. First time i hear this cind of starting noise.

 

For me is like when you start car and go fot full gas instantly (but you are standing). Can you start car and go smooth to full gas? Can this fan be started smooth?

 

There is two fans. Why other one does not make such klicking noise when starting?


While the system boots up it loads a lot of files and drivers which will make the CPU heatup fast - that's why you hear it "noisy" in boot times. SSD can read the required files much faster and will feed the CPU just as it should = more heat. And it can go louder that's like around 60% of the fan (it may vary depending on the room/ambient temp) so while you updated the BIOS - the fan was at 100% and i'm sure you can make the difference ;)

Just a reminder:

 

If your fan is making a sound other than what has been described in this discussion (chirping, pulsing, sounds like this: https://youtu.be/4Bem66ATLqM - fixed by BIOS v2.01), please call Lenovo Service for support.

 

Thank you,

even though it was your duty rather than a favour, thanks for the fix, seems to work well!

Hello,

after update clickingh is stop. But 2 weeks later my video card burned (nvidia) - or maybe its motherboard... Anyway i'm afraid that the repair service in Germany again will take 3 months like last time... Sorry but is my last device from Your company (I bought this Y50 after the service in Germany could not fix my y580)... I like this laptop, but the level of service and hardware problems disqualify him. I've had enough...

 

Regards

Oh man, my laptop is in Germany in RMA now. If it takes more than 30 days (they have to repair it in 30 days by the law), I am calling them and giving them hell.
