Re: LENOVA FLEX 5 FAN NOISE SPORADIC JUST ON WEB BROWSER!!!!!!

That's your virus program doing a scan. Typical. If you just set it aside and let the scan finish, the fan will ramp down. 

 

I know Lenovo ships with McAfee, but I've never been a fan. I ran Norton for a while, but even that became too bloated and slowed down the computer. Right now, I'm running Microsoft's own anti-virus stuff as it seems to have less impact on performance. That said, I'm also hyper-vigilant with where I go online and what I open. 

 

Anyway, it's the program causing your fan to run. Nothing else.

The fans runs sporadically when just browsing the web!  The fans runs the whole time during a virus scan!  And when on photoshop also runs.  Hey no big deal i will exchange it and see if the other one has the same issue.

I disabled McAfee and still fan noise.  I'll see if the exchange is any different.

Checked Task Manager... Host App Service Update Manager (a Lenovo utility?!) running at 34%; #1 on the list for over 5 minutes straight.  I ended it and the fan spun down within 30 seconds and has been quiet for 15 minutes.

Thank you for patience to help.  i

 

i noticed when i have the keyboard light on. the fan doesn't turn as much or hardly.  Weird.  I'll probably leave it on looks cooler and see if its consistent.  Really like the display on this laptop much much better than tn panels and easier on the eyes.  Mine eyes haven't twitched using this
