I have bought a Lenovo Z50-75 in january 2015, and since last 2 weeks it seems the fan is not working, since the laptop is overheating (up to around 95 C before it shuts down).
I've installed Speedfan to check the temperatures, but speedfan can not find the fan. There is also no airflow coming from the side.
2 days ago i opened my laptop, because it seemed like the speakers were torn. When i opened it and checked them, there were a load of tiny balls magnetically attached to the speakers, which has led me to think they could be the ball bearings from the fan. Does that make any sense?
Im trying to find out if it's the fan itself, or if it is a software / mobo problem. I've updated my BIOS to the latest version, and downloaded the Lenovo Solution Center, but without any luck.
Is anyone familiair with this problem, or does anyone have some ideas what else I might try?
