Lenovo G555 fan making loud noise

2012-03-24, 17:09 PM

The noise started coming about a week ago. It wasn't that loud, but I would sometimes hear a vibrating sound coming from the fan of my Lenovo G555. Sometimes it would stop. But if I ever moved it, the vibrating noise would come back.

 

But today, the noise got really loud and it wouldn't stop this time unless I shut it down or something. Why is this? Is there any solutions to get this fixed, too?

As you are experiencing loud noise from the system.

 

To diagnose, I would suggest you to please update update the Bios of  your system from the below mentioned web link.

After that please check if the issue resolved.

 

Regards,

Sameer

Had this issue with the CPU fan in my G555 after about a year and a half. A very small drop of light fan oil in the port under the sticker on the fan fixed it right up. Keep in mind doing that is not a good idea if you are still under any kinda warranty.

Is the system overheating? Is the system freezing or lag in performance, when the noise is high?

 

Suggestion by khively is a good one. If the laptop is under warranty, just try the BIOS update ( link shared by Sameer) and then contact technical support.

hi there,

I tried getting into that BIOS update but the link seems to be dead - is there any up to date link to that?

Although the link in this thread is dead, the BIOS update is still available which is version 21.
