Hi iShkilenok , 

 

 

Welcome to the Community Forums. 

 

You can try to uninstall energy management and the reinstall it back from the support site

Restart the pc and test. 

 

If same issue , you may have to physically open the cover and inspect the fan if it would be able spin. 

While turned of try to test if the fan will smoothly move by pushing it with a small stick. 

Check if there are clogged materials preventing it to spin like strands of fibers and dust. 

Use a blower as needed .

 

If you don't have the tools or experience on doing this best that you have a service technician in your location do it for you.  Herewith are the hardware manual for review and guide.  

 

Similar discussions here .

Update us how things go. 

 

 

Regards

Re: Lenovo Z580 undusting doesn't work

Thank you spidey101, nice try, Unfortunately it doesn't help. Tried to reinstall energy management, and inspected fan. It spins perfectly. But the issue still exists. Want to try to reinstall OS along with all lenovo stuff as it was initially, but can't find where to download image and how to find my activation code (Win 8)

Hi iShkilenok , 

 

Greetings. 

 

Starting with WIndows 8 and above versions, product keys are no longer available on the microsoft sticker instead are encrypted on the machine itself and is activated automatically via activation 3.0 . 

 

If you still have One Key Recovery features assuming that the hidden factory reset partition was not changed or deleted from the harddrive, back up everything you need since it would delete and reimage the machine back. 

 

To start the process , use the Novo button (item6 page 3) instead of the power to turn it on. This would offer Novo Menu , system recovery to launch One Key Recovery from initial backup. 

 

If this restoration would not fix the problem , then most likely a replacement hardware is expected specially if BIOS is already updated. 

 

Update us how it goes on your end.

 

Regards

I don't have this history turned on. And, I'd prefer fresh OS installation
