Re: G500 new bios

2010-04-26, 19:52 PM

Where are Lenovo Social Media guys? I wonder if anything is being done there to resolve the problem. I was unaware of this thread and replaced one faulty G550 with a new G550, only to discover that its fan runs every 3 min.. Am I supposed to send it back? Bios did not help, and after having sent my previous G550 to the local repair centre to no avail, I am not sure as to whether keeping this laptop makes much sense.

 

can anyone tell me what's the worst that can happen if the fan carries on like this. I don't know much about laptops and don't know what I should be expecting next. If I forget about the noise, should I still be worried that functionality will at certain point suffer from the fan working so madly?

 

Thanks in advance!

 

JK

Yes BIOS upgrade to ver 2.5.1 helps a lot - however as suggested by me earlier there is still room for improvement.

Ok, i have installed the new Bios 2.53 without any problems. I dont see any difference between 2.51 and 2.53. I think the fan control is same as before.
