Y410 Fan Issue

2009-01-13, 0:55 AM

I have a Y410 that is about 14 months old.

 

It all of sudden shuts down (after about 30 mins) and when I reboot it givens me the windows safe mode question screen. I also don't hear the fan start running when I reboot the system.

 

I think my fan is dead.

 

Does anyone know how hard it is to replace on my own or do I need to take it to someone?

Welcome to the forum, aharsh.

 

Your Y410 fan might have accumulated some dirt, fibres, etc. which could be the reason for its mal-function.  You can probably try to clean it up first, if possible.  You can check the section "Lenovo 3000 Notebooks", the thread "Service Videos for Lenovo 3000 systems - component install/removal  which provides guides on how to open the 3000 notebook series.

 

Otherwise, your best solution is to take the laptop to an authorized Lenovo service center for thorough cleaning and check-up of other components.

 

Hope this helps.

I am having the same problem and mine is 14 months old as well.  Unfortunately, since Lenovo customer support was pretty much useless and just gave me the 'sorry we cant do anything' line I had to take it to an outside company (CDW in Vernon Hills, IL they take walk-ins or you can have it shipped to them).  The worst part was my warranty expired January 16th.  Thanks Lenovo for building such a piece of crap that crashes often, overheats frequently, and breaks down two weeks after the warranty expires.  I've learned my lesson, go back to HP.

Dear Friends,

 

As i know, only  1 fan on your left. please try to clean it up inside the fan.  (hope u can frequently clean the fan and cooling component example the hitzink near at your fan. u can take out your fan and clean ) 

 

I recomended u while u using your laptop, dont block the bottom on your laptop, for example, dont put your laptop at our bedsheet, clooth or etc that will blocking the ventilation. prefer put on tables only. because lenovo laptop inflow ventilation is from bottom only. Not like other branded more then 1 inflow ventilation, some have top/back of your laptop also have inflow ventitation but lenovo no.
