Lenovo Flex 5 Battery, Fan, and Tablet Mode

2018-04-11, 19:28 PM



I recently bought a Lenovo Flex 5 from Costco in the summer of 2017 right before college. Since then, for a while now, it has a couple key issues. 

1. My battery life is basically <2 hours on low power mode and 90% brightness, I basically always have to keep my laptop plugged in to use it.

2. The fan on my laptop spins randomly and frequently and I don't think I have any high demanding applications running.

3. Randomly while typing, the computer will spazz out and flash a lot and switch into and out of tablet mode. Sometimes it gets stuck in tablet mode and I have to figure out ways to go back to normal mode.


Are these issues common in this laptop or do I have a defective model? What should I go about doing?
