Re: G550 fan problem

2010-05-07, 16:49 PM

well you guys can't update the bios, you should read the text file that came with the update, and then flash the proper Ver /32/64bit depends on your notebook, lenovo have nothing to do with that, the new bios flashed and working perfectly both 32 and 64bit, so what you did to make your notebook die? why did you sent it for a motherboard replacement?,though there is no Fan fix in the new bios however the fan is almost dead on my G550, it has no sound after the bios update :),CPU Temp is 30 to 55C max load(gaming), in hot weather it might rich 60.

Exactly what you said... I didn't mean for the cool air to enter from the top, but the hot air to escape.

Re: G550 fan problem

Hi everyone
yesterday I bought a Lenovo G550 2958 (Intel celeron 900 @ 2.20 GHz, Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit, 2GB Ram, 160GB HD), after

some minutes I noticed the fan noise. I started to search on the net for a solution and I found out this very long post (over 50 pages). I updated the BIOS to the V.2.53 (http://consumersupport.lenovo.com/us/en/DriversDownloads/drivers_show_2884.html) but I don't notice any difference. All of you have been complaning about this issue since last September and I think that Lenovo hasn't solved it yet in the right way. Personally I prefer a fan working constantly at a low speed, you know it would be very silent, so I'd like to have some advice: is it better to return the laptop to the shop and looking for another one or if I wanted to keep my Lenovo, what could I ask for ?
Thanks a lot.

I noticed that there's a kind of film covering the fan for about 75% at the back of the laptop, has anyone tried to remove it ? or why is it there ? To direct the airflow at the heatsink maybe ? Anyway quite strange I've never seen this configuration.
