Re: Z580 thermal management stuck on dedusting. Need Help ASAP

Welcome to the forum !

 

Here is a couple of suggestions...........

 

Try doing a soft reset of the system and BIOS.  Shut Windows down, unplug the power adapter, remove the battery and then press the Power Button for 10 seconds.  Then reinstall the battery, plug in the power adapter if needed and power up the laptop to see if the problem is cured.

 

I would also tap the Thermal Management Button several times.  Quite possible the button is stuck.

Re: Z580 thermal management stuck on dedusting. Need Help ASAP

If you go into the BIOS Setup at boot up does the fan still run at dedusting speed ? 

 

If it does, I suspect it is an internal hardware problem.

 

If it doesn't, then your problem more than likely lies with-in the operating system.  When you re-installed the Energy Management software did you uninstall the previous version first or did you re-install over the already installed version ?  If you installed over the previous version, try uninstalling first then reboot the computer and then re-install the software.

Re: Z580 thermal management stuck on dedusting. Need Help ASAP

In regards to my previous suggestion....... did the fan return to normal speed when in the BIOS Setup ?

 

If you have a bootable CD/DVD available try booting from that to see if the fan runs normal. 

 

If the fan runs normal with those two suggestions above then I would suspect the operating system is at fault.  Given all that you have tried with uninstalling and reinstalling Energy Management I would be inclined to do a One Key Recovery after backing up any important files.  The recovery would restore the computer back to when you first received it and eliminate any possibility of your problem being software related.

I tried deleting all the lenovo softwares and re-installing all but nothing has changed.
Fan speed returned to normal speed but options are stuck. I don't have bootable cd/dvd, i never had. If i do recovery or format and it still won't work i can easily understand that problem is related to hardware or the other ways around. I can't do any recovery process right now.
