Lenovo 510S-14IKB: Fan constantly running

Hi, i just got my Lenovo 510S-14IKB today. Everything is working fine, its super fast in comparison to my old laptop. Only problem is, that the fan seems to run all the time and is making noticable noise. the temperature of the cpu aer all in the range of 20° only the hd was at 34. so normally that are not temperatures where cooling is needed. If i let the notebook idle for 2 min it goes dead silent but starts again even if i just scroll down a homepage. And even if i start programms whicht take more resources, the fan does not get louder. Is there anyway to controll the fan? Help would be really appreciated, Thanks in advance and sorry for my bad english Smiley Happy

Re: Lenovo 510S-14IKB: Fan constantly running

Hi there, Fan               -

 

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

 

Is it like a rattling noise? Or just the fan spinning very fast?

 

If you open up your task manager, do you see any processes that are consuming high percentages of CPU?

  1. Also run virus scan with the latest virus definitions and check for no viruses or malware. 
  2. You should also install a temp monitoring program and post what your temps are.

Update us how it goes.

Re: Lenovo 510S-14IKB: Fan constantly running

Hi,

i do have the same problem. My lenovo is brand new (two days) so there is no need to run a antivirus program or something i don't even have any programs expect for the pre installed. Is there anything i can do/download so it stops because it's really annoying and i'm quite unhappy with this situation... 

Thanks!

Re: Lenovo 510S-14IKB: Fan constantly running

In BIOS and Power Manager are two ways to help control your fan speeds. I would suggest you check these setting and see if it reduces the noise of the fan at idle. If not do you run a a monitoring tool like cpuz or Speedfan that gives RPMS? Could you post the RPMS at idle and the CPU load?

 

Update us how it goes.

I have the same problem and for what I've learned till now is that this is how Lenovo designs their laptops. Very annoying though and I would not have bought it if I had known! Hopefully they'll come up with a firmware update soon

Re: Lenovo 510S-14IKB: Fan constantly running

Hi,

 

I've just added a config file for notebook fan control (https://github.com/hirschmann/nbfc) for the Ideapad 510s that solves the problem for me:
