Ideapad 510-15IKB - Noisy fan

2017-08-23, 21:42 PM

Hi,

 

Driven by the good performance of some Lenovo Thinkpads from friends, I just bought an Ideapad 510-15IKB and everything is just great, except for the fun noise! It is completely insane, I can hear all the time, even after booting without anything running. After searching a lot on the web it seems to me that this is quite usual on this Lenovo machines and the company is not answering at all to the customers request. Is it that hard to release a bios update that changes the behavior of the fan or does it mean that this design has a cooling problems and it needs to have the fan constantly running?

I know that it is not fair to argue that the temperature of the cpu is around 35C and the fan is running, because if the fan was not running the temperature would be higher for sure, but would it be higher enough to justify that the fan is always running at a earable pace?

 

I guess that we, the customers, just want an answer from Lenovo, either saying that this is like it is and we need to live with that or, the preferable one, a BIOS update...

 

In my case, I will wait a couple more days to see if any solution comes up and if not, I will be returning the laptop and buy something that is not Lenovo.

 

Thanks

Pedro

Hi Pedro,       

 

Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.

 

Most likely a bios fix is required and/or power manager to control it.

Please go through this link for better understanding.

 

Update us how it goes.

 

 

 Regards,

 Rameez

Hi Rameez,

 

Thank you for your answer.

Unfortunately that was not the answer that I was expecting. This answer was given to another customer here in the forum, so my answer will be the same.

1- I have updated the bios to the latest version.

2- The user Anil22 didn't specify the drivers he has instaled.

 

I still have no answer for this!!

 

Thanks

Pedro
