Noise in the computer

2021-04-07, 13:33 PM

I bought Lenovo IdeaPad 3 15IIL05 grey approximately half a year ago.

I use it for office purpose, I don't play good computer games. Sometimes I watch movies online and play browser games. When I do it my laptop makes so much noise. I think the problem is in computer vent. The laptop is on the table, I didn't hit it or make any damage. And it can't be dust inside because I often clean it. 

It makes as much noise as my old computer which I bought 10 years ago. Laptop's also a bit hot near a screen panel. 

I don't think it's normal.

And I'm puzzled because I don't know what should I say to IT service guys. 

Could anyone please tell me what's possible wrong? 

Should I ask to change my laptop or try to repair it?

Hello JelenaIa,


Welcome to the Community Forums.


Here are some tips to check on your fan issue and if these can be helpful in minimizing the noise.


You may check on Lenovo Vantage to set the fan into Quiet mode first. If there is no option on Lenovo Vantage, go ahead and proceed to check it on BIOS.


To go to BIOS: From a powered off state, disconnect all peripheral devices connected (external mouse, keyboards, flashdrives, chrager, etc.) then press and hold down the power button for 60 seconds to drain flea power.


Access the Novo button, the machine will show Novo Menu, use keyboard and select BIOS Set Up - head to Configuration tab and look for quiet mode. To exit, tap on the F10 key on your keyboard to Save and Exit. The machine will automatically boot to Windows.


If these did not work in your machine, I suggest to check your current BIOS version if it matches the recommended version from our support site. On the support page, enter your machine serial number, go to Drivers and Software tab, click Manual Update - check/compare the BIOS versions.
