@ JHP

Do you want 64 bit windows so you can put in more than 4 Gb RAM?

You're right about the G550 only taking 4Gb max RAM.


Yes, since I don't buy stuff like this very often, being able to upgrade it down the line makes the Sony more future-proof.  BTW, I got a full refund on my faulty machine.  To anyone esle planning to send back a machine to an online retailer, having a DOA number makes things much easier.

Hi, I bought G550A yesterday (T6600 & G210M) and I have the same issue with noise fan. I don't think it's faulty thermostats, it seems to be a serie problem, coz many (maybe every) users have it. So, I wrote e-mail to Lenovo and waiting for feedback. Hope they workin' on fix... Anyway this laptop is nice, I love it!

 

I'm using Windows 7 Professional with ForceWare 195.55


 

Please let us know what they say.  If it's something that can be easily put right through a bios update, i might be persuaded to go for another G550.

Hi, i bought my G550 in Russia and my notebook have the same problem! But point is that it cant adjust fun speed. Main fun can spins only on minimal speed or at maximum speed! I very disappointed about it. G550 is very noisy becouse then I begin to work with it, fun spins like crazy, even then I just work with office docs! I was trying to install few apps for regulation  fun speed for notebooks, but they dont work for Lenovo G550. Please Help me.. its blow my mind!

I'm starting to think that Lenovo sees no problem in selling laptops in this state.  This is the Value Line after all.  If ever there was a product line in home electronics that should never be called "Value" anything, this is it.  They might as well have called it the "Cheap Series".  People buy these laptops because of the ThinkPad/IBM reputuation, not because they seek cut-price computing.  OK rant nearly over.

 

Lenovo really should let us know if they plan on addressing this, or is this the standard of laptop that us "Value Line" customers are expected to accept?

 

Could a moderator perhaps use whatever links they have with Lenovo to get our questions answered?  Maybe they could show this thread to someone at Lenovo?  I'm sure we'd all apreciate it.
