Y470 fan keep running

Hi, all,

I got my Y470 (i7-267QM, 8G RAM, Nvidia 1G video) 2 days ago.  I noticed one thing, once the machine is turned on, the fan keeps running.  No matter how many programs you are running,  for example, if I only open one "chrome" window and browse internet, the fan will run.  It is annoying because it generate a sound like "the sea tide up and down" . at this moment, my CPU usage is 0% and physical Memory usage is 22%. My old Dell Inspiron6400  makes noise too but it is  constant at the same level. Can anyone give some suggestions?

 

Regards,

Tao

Re: Y470 fan keep running

did it come with fresh operation system?
( did you set-up any windows settings such as user name, location etc )
also, run task manager to check if there's any application using more than %20 under processes > cpu.
