Ideapad Z710 fan chirp


I bought an Ideapad Z710 about 40 days ago. A few days ago this started. I am hearing a slight chirping noise when my dedicated GEFORCE GT 745M is loaded during gaming. Additionally, this seems to happen more if the laptop is angled toward the user, say 30 degrees. Is this something I should be concerned about, as in a sign that a fan is defective?  Thank you for your help!

Re: Ideapad Z710 fan chirp

Hi Roalnd,


Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!


I'm sorry to hear that there is chirping noise generated from your Laptop. Normally if the Laptop fan is running, and the angle of fan changes a bit, this may generate minute sound, but it is recommend to use the Laptop on a flat surface, please let me know if the issue persists even the after using the Laptop on a flat surface.


Hope to hear back soon


Best Regards

Shiva Kumar
