Hi All,


Hope my Reply will help on this issue.


I had quite same problem. The fan was clincking and pulsating. 

As it appeared, the sound was caused by tiny piece of cloth, under the rear cover of the leptop. If you unscrew the cover, you can see a thin cloth covering the vent cuts. one or two "hairs" of the cloth were touching the fan quite deeply. I just cut them off and the annoying sound was gone.


Be careful on doing this. apparently I screwed the cover back too strongly and now I have cracks beneath the desplay holder.

Re: Y50 Big fan pulsating and clicking

Hi all, Hello Lenovo!


My Y50-70 UHS/SSD (manuf. Nov., 2015)  is new,  am just using it for a couple of weeks,  bought it especially because I thought it would be possible to work in "silence".  But now?  It is really a pain in the a.,  the ticking of the fan is much more worse than a steady slow turning fan.


Obviously the issue is with every of them,  and at least hundreds of owners has contacted Lenovo support  - but no reaction from Lenovos side?!  Some guys got a new device in replacement,  but no improvement of this noise.  The German support ignored that there are obviuosly all devices affected and said that they just can care for the problem if I return my device to the German distributor. As I have alread all my applications and data installed as usually for an every-day-use  laptop,  it would be a big problem to just give it away for an unknown time.


I have spent really a big part of my income to have a reliable and modern Laptop,  but it is annoying how Lenovo cares for really existing faults in design of the product?


Did now anybody got a real help from Lenovo??


Best regards,

Peter from Estonia
