System fan periodically stops and runs in 3000 K1

2008-05-29, 19:49 PM
Mine is 3000 K1 and just had it two days ago.  A system fan problem bugs me a lot: the sysmptom is that when PC is turned on, the system fan seems not to wok like other fans as usaully. It stops then runs, then repeats periodically. Moreover, it makes sound like we press the gas padal for speeding when fan starts. This is really annoying me.
 
I asked my friend about it and he told me that this fan is a defect and a NORMAL system fan never stops then runs. At most, it  reduces the speed controlled by system, but never like mine-- stops (around 1-3 seconds) then runs.
 
Anyone's ideas are greatly appreciated and welcomed.

This is normal behavior for the back of the tower fan. It will not run all the time, its on demand as determined by the temperature monitor on the motherboard.

I have had my leno for two months and I have never heard my fans. There is a slight breeze at the back of the box. I do not do games. Am I all right?

most of the current computers produced by Lenovo use a temperature dependent fan, that varies speed with temperature.
