Re: Ideapad 510-15IKB fan never idling

Hey, 

 

I have the exact same problem. Have you been able to find a solution in the mean time?

 

I don't want to return my laptop but I will if I have to.

I couldn't figure out anything more. I'm waiting for a new BIOS update. One more symptom I found is when I power on the laptop and it is sufficiently cold, the fan won't start on win10 boot, but shortly after that during the first higher load it kicks in and then never stops.

There is a new BIOS update for my laptop, but it didn't solve anything. I'm trying to figure out how to contact technical staff from lenovo with no success. This whole thing is ridiculous.

Did you return your laptops? Any change?

Hi there,

 

I also have this problem, and it is becoming very annoying. The latest BIOS update did not fix the issue. I do not want to return the laptop, but I might have to if this continues.

I'm still hoping for a solution as this BIOS update wasn't intended to fix anything as the release notes say..

This is getting more and more ridiculous as only people with the same problem are replying. Nobody from lenovo, no tech guys, not even a community mod. Seems like nobody cares. Like if this wasn't a real issue, like if battery drain caused by the fan wasn't a real issue. It is. Running the fan always kills it before time because of unnecessary bearing wear and makes battery time drop to half its intended length. This is a f-ing shame.

I have the very same problem. I also posted here on the forums but haven't found a solution yet.

As that thread pondered though, in the Windows world (as opposed to the Apple world), maybe specifically the Lenovo world, is this abnormal?  Is it by design?  I don't have the context to know.
