Hi,

 

Welcome to the forum. Sorry to know that a relatively new laptop is having this issue.

 

Check the BIOS version and drivers.

 

For BIOS, click on start and type msinfo32. Let me know the SMBIOS version/date

For drivers, open the device manager and check if any devices have any alert.

 

Please update me the details so that we can identify the cause.

Thank you for the details.

 

Please update the BIOs using this link. http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloads/detail.page?DocID=DS029084

 

BIOS update is a critical process, so do not interrupt it once it starts. Also, system will restart, wait till it restarts and boots back to Windows.

 

Observe the system after this BIOs update and please keep me posted.

To update BIOS, both adapter and battery is needed. It will not update if any one of them is not connected.

 

Also, always keep the battery connected or cover the battery compartment to avoid dust accumulation.

Hey

I have the same problem, Y580, right now it's about 3 weeks old. My temps are hitting in the 90s in most games.

 

I've seen the CPU hit 93ºC and the GPU 95ºC on a day when it was 30ºC outside.

 

In the attached Image are temps I got for reference on a day where the temperature of the day is 28ºC  I played Hitman: Absolution on low to see if it would make a difference to the temps but I doesn't look like/feel like it does.

 

Link to image

 

Also, I've already updated the BIOS so that's not the problem. A part of me believes that this laptop was built for these temperatures but that would be... unethical :smileyindifferent: It gets pretty **bleep** uncomfortable on my palm.

 

I hope there is a solution to this.

Also, I managed to disable Turboboost to try and solve the problem but no dice as you can see with the clock speeds and temps.

I'm thinking maybe the job on the thermal paste is bad, I heard of some new Lenovos that had really cheap, badly applied thermal paste. So I'm thinking I wanna get it checked out but I don't want to void my warranty :smileyindifferent:
