Lenovo Ideapad Z710 Fan Constantly running on Windows 8.1 without reason

Hi,

 

I have tried everything I can think of to try and get my fan to not run nearly 100% of the time.  Drivers, BIOS, complete reinstallations of windows, compressed air, physically removing the back of the laptop and cleaning the fan by hand, about 50 different internet solutions; nothing works.  Also the temperature is fine, running around 35 degrees, so it's not that.

 

Help would be appreciated.

Hi there, Agreag –

 

Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.

 

Fan is very loud when the CPU load increases. Possible causes could be dried lubrication in the fan, worn bearings, or just a dust build up. Hence try cleaning the fan once.

 

  1. If you open up your task manager, do you see any processes that are consuming high percentages of CPU?
  1. Also run virus scan with the latest virus definitions and check for no viruses or malware. 

Update us how it goes.

 

 

 

 

 

Regards,
