A few days ago my laptop's fan started making loud noises when running at regular speed even though the cpu and gpu isn't heating up, I checked the temperature with CoreTemp and SpeedFan between 35 C to 45 C and the noise becames even louder if I start a game, so I disambled it and cleaned from the dust and I found that it wasn't really that dirty, I put it back together and the same noise is still there, I tried updating Lenovo Power Mangement Driver and installing Control Speed Fan Driver from lenovo website but it didn't change anything.
I tried to update bios with this softwere https://support.lenovo.com/ar/en/downloads/ds038599
but I got ERROR 233 - Only secured capsule is allowed on SecureFlash system!
What should I do now?
I am using Windows 7 64bits for the OS and I have the nvidia 610m graphic card with the integrated intel 4000 and i5 processor and 4 GB ram.
Modele number is 268959357228
Solved! Go to Solution.

the same fan problem like quasar01 since a few days.nothing helped me so far.strange that the problem began for me also a few days ago like thread opener.
The fan on the heatsink is not going to last forever, and will eventually fail. This is a common and well know issue with ALL computer fans, no matter where they are installed.
The only solution to fix a worn out or damaged fan is to physically replace it with a known good fan. This is not unexpected, nor can it be resolved with a BIOS update or a software patch, as it is a physical issue with a moving part that requires it to be replaced.
To replace the fan, you can determine if your computer is under warranty by contacting Lenovo Support via the phone, and if under warranty have a service center replace the failed part. If your warranty has expired, then it will be at cost, or you can look into replacing it on your own.
The cheaper option would be to replace the fan on your own, but it would require a bit of technical expertise and also some reading into the process required as outlined in your notebook's Maintenance Manual. That manual is available to download under the Support options on this site.
