I can confirm that it is no longer an option on the latest driver. I came across the change in one of mhy investigations. Unfortunately, I do not know why it was removed and there are no readme files documenting the change.

I have a Lenovo Y50, the option to activate the "dust removal" is into "LENOVO SETTINGS" , I was confused looking for that option into "energy manager"

Re: Dust Removal option is not existing !!!

Well, I can tell you why there is no such option anymore or to be precise why they removed this option.

 

I am a self taught computer technician and in my years of experience I have seen countless cases where the poor ventilation system and design (very small in size and very few in number air inlet grills), were the main reasons that caused a critical hardware failure.

 

In most cases it's the graphics card (GPU) that will suffer the damage. And as we all know, laptops and notebooks in most cases have onboard - integrated graphics cards/chips, soldered on the motherboard.

 

So, when you go to a repair shop they will tell you that you either have to replace the mainboard (with a cost almost as much as to buy a new laptop), or to buy a new laptop. What would you choose?Smiley Surprised

 

They will not bother to repair it because it's a difficult repair that requires skills and equipment that most of them don't have.

 

Interestingly, it always happens shortly after the warranty has expired.Smiley Wink

 

I'm pretty sure it's not a coincidence and I'm telling this because I have seen laptops where all the other components were soldered with lead free solder while the gpu was soldered with common, lead based solder that has a lower melting point.

 

I can't believe that they are capable of producing such marvelous technological things as the today's processors (CPUs) with one hundred billion transistors in a space no larger than a fingernail or ultra-small SMT (Surface Mount Technology) chip capacitors and tactile switches while on the other hand, they are not able to make a fan spin faster or to find an effective way to attach the GPU chip to the motherboard. Come on guys...Smiley Very Happy

 

Please note that the Lenovo laptop that I'm currently working on has a four-wire fan which means that the fan speed can be controlled with an appropriate driver or BIOS update.

 

Until Lenovo and other big companies change their way of thinking and their policy, my advice to my clients would be...stay away from these products and brands.

If you want i was able to copy the LEnovo Settings program from my old y50-70, and it works on my y700. I can send you a link on google drive for it. Just message me privately.
