Thermal management windows 8 pro not working in ideapad z470

2012-11-11, 23:40 PM

I had just upgraded my windows 7 to windows 8 pro, and I installed the drivers for windows 8, but the thermal management button is not working even though that I already installed the energy management and it doesn't have the option to clean up the fan, when I was able to use it in windows 7

Same here.... Does your fan light flash? Also have you seen your framerates half in gaming?

 

This is a joke! This is killing our hardware!! Not happy one bit! Scared to play a game as the fan does not speed up :(

I have this same issue as well.  I called Lenovo support.  There is no current fix but this is some major bs.

 

Bad bios + a lack of system fan software means if we game, we get **bleep** performance while our computers cook.

Same issue on mine Y470. I un-installed the Win8 version of Lenovo Power Management, rebooted, installed the Win7 version, and it's working fine now. Try that until Lenovo fixes the Win8 version of their Power Management Program.
