I have the same problem. We had bought 2 laptops G550, and after install Win 7 Pro fan still working, or working few second, 2 second stops, and start again (when system is idle) . Software fan controller is probably corrupt..

 

Please give us some solutions, this situations is not so comfort...

Thank you for your comments! It seems that many people have the same problem with this model.

Does anyone know if it's possible to mange the fan speed by using "Notebook Hardware Control" (http://www.pbus-167.com/) like in that thread:


http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-3000-and-Value-line/N200-769-EAG-CPU-FAN-PROBLEM/td-p/12904

 

Or manage the fan speed by using some other program. Any ideas how to solve the problem are welcome. Of course Lenovo is the one that should solve this problem. Like stated in the previous page, new bios with finer fan control could solve the problem.

Any luck with this issue yet?  NHC is not working on this model, and the Lenovo rep suggested I download drivers from the website!  Unless a bios update is released asap  this laptop is going where it came from.

I can live with a terrible touchpad, but a fan going on off every 10 seconds is inacceptable even on a cheap plasiticy laptop.

Anybody know how can inform Lenovo about this problem?

Hello,

 

the Lenovo hotline told me to update my chipset drivers from the Lenovo Homepage.

But there is no chipset driver for windows 7 32bit wich i have installed.

 

does anyone have a solution for the problem allready ? Or is this noise normal for this notbook ?

Re: G550 fan problem

I got a G550 with 500Gb HD through the mail yesterday and the same thing is happening to me.

 

The fan spins around every 8-10 seconds for a period of around 4-6 seconds - very annoying.

 

Even when idle it spins away, although not as frequently as that above.

 

Has anyone received an update from Lenovo support regarding proposed fixes.

 

I would hate to take this laptop to my college library as I may be asked to leave!
