Re: Y50 Big fan pulsating and clicking

2014-10-09, 19:50 PM

Hello,

 

after long emails and phone calls I took the 50/50 chance to send the Y50 back to lenovo one week ago. Today, I got it back and I installed Win 8.1 and all driver. Good news till now no click noice. :) They documented replacement of the whole fan/cooling unit. Maybe there different supplier for this part and now they mounted a better one.

 

 

Best regards

 

Sebastian

Hi,

 

I don´t know. I think there is also the possibility to update the BIOS, but when? It took one week to repair it but I have red about people who send it in and got the same problem back. If a lot of customers send the Y50 back Lenovo has to do something. Otherwise they will spend a lot of money for replacement and shipping.

 

 

Best regards

I really think it's a lack of respect coming from the lenovo support. We have no official answer whatsoever from anyone. Not even from contacting them via support line. It's like for them the problem doesn't exist. Shame, shame...will never buy lenovo again.

They know about the problem, is the most answered topic, and they know it's a world-wide spread problem, so that's why they shut up, they wanna camouflage the problem.

And that's exactly why I'm never going to go with Lenovo ever again in my life. Next time, go with a brand that won't use cheap and buggy components on a $1000+ machine.

Another y50 user here form Turkey. I just can't believe they haven't released any updates for this flaw which belongs to their so called 'premium laptop'

Sebastian,

 

Thanks for the update.

Did you decide to install Windows again or did they format your whole
drive? I would be willing to do it, only if I don't have to install the
operating system/drivers/programmes again. Thanks in advance for your reply!
