Hi, this is my first post in this forum. So I just bought this IdeaPad V310-15ISK model a week ago and it really seems like a solid budget laptop, except for one thing, the fan will sometimes make this noise that sounds like the fan is about to run at full speed but only last like 2 seconds, it happens randomly like every 30 minutes or hour and it's really annoying. It has been doing this since the beginning. The laptop came without an OS so I installed Windows 7 x64 on it, but it also happens with other operating systems like Linux.
Is this a normal thing of this model? or is just a problem of my laptop? what can I do to fix it?

Thanks for using the Lenovo forums.
I think it is spooling up at times due to the unit reaching higher temperatures, I would recommedn you install something like RealTemp and monitor the temperatures of your device and see if this is the case, in which case, this should be normal, as of course, the unit would try to run the fans faster to cool off.
Otherwise you may require a BIOS update for this, this usually fixes these issues.
However searching around the forums this seems to make no difference with most people`s units.
If the BIOS update does not work, then I would recommend that you try out a fan control program, and see if that is able to help at all.
Hope this helps, let us know how you get on.

Alright, my BIOS is up to date but the issue persists. I don't think it's a problem of high temperatures because I only use this laptop for browsing the web and other kind of lightweight use.
Also, the fan start spinning at max speed while I'm on the BIOS.
