Brand new 520S fan is really loud randomly

2018-02-28, 10:54 AM

So I just bought the 520S ideapad. I just finished installing Windows and went to download chrome. That's all I've managed to do with the laptop so far and the fan is just randomly going off really loud like all its processors are about to get overheated. I'm not sure what the deal is since it's brand new and I've barely done anything on it. I've also seen other searches with similar issues for the model.


Should I be worried with my purchase?


Also, when I'm watching a video or doing anything with sound, the speakers turn on and have a static sound and it takes a moment for them to turn off again. Is this just bad quality speakers?

I'm having the exact same issue. Apparently the fan kicks in at high speed as soon as the processor hits 40C (which is kinda low). It cools it down quickly and then the fan goes silent, ... just to start up again as soon as you open a new page.
