Earlier today my Y50 started making a high pitch noise. I opened it up and cleaned the intakes and also ran the clean dust from system and the noise is still there. It sounds like it is orginating from the fan. Is it time to replace the fan? Ive had this laptop for just over a year. Im in need a immediate solution as i use this laptop everyday for several hours and have many reports and coding projects to work on and this noise is very distracting and extremely annoying.
Thank you in advance

Hi there, Schmalza -
Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.
You can also start by flushing out all static, remove battery and AC adaptor and hold down power button for about 15 seconds.
Is it like a rattling noise? Or just the fan spinning very fast?
If you open up your task manager, do you see any processes that are consuming high percentages of CPU?
Also run virus scan with the latest virus definitions and check for no viruses or malware.
You should also install a temp monitoring program and post what your temps are.
Update us how it goes.
