Purchased the Y430 from CC in the USA. The one with the intel gma x4500mhd not the nvidia one.
Anyways.... Where is the bios section for this model... Is there even bios updates...
I am so use to going to a support a site and looking @ bios updates. Btw nothing personal but the support site when it comes to downloads and such and bios updates if there is any, is the most horrible thing i have ever seen! I am a long time computer user so very familar with them all, dell, hp, asus, etc.

Yes, why does Lenovo have the worst support? I thought I was buying a top of the line branded machine. Guess what I will never buy again? Lenovo! Where are the BIOS updates for the Y430? Why do I have to here my fan cycle on and off every 2 seconds?
Come on Lenovo! This is horrible.

Currently, there is no BIOS update for the Y430 model. I would have appreciated a BIOS update to allow disabling the loud beep while plugging/unplugging the AC adapter.

I also ordered Y430 from Lenovo web site and annoyed with this sound. This is a superb note book I ever have (apart from my Thinkpad), but they should really come up with new BIOS release before people get frustrated.

any updates on this???
I am also anoyed by the fan. I do not mind if it is working and I do not mind if it is quiet. BUT on-and-off every 10-15 seconds is getting anoying pretty quick. Also, when in higher speed the fan sounds as if it is rattling.
If we are not going to get a BIOS updates - is there a way for someone to "download" the newer BIOS from one of the newer computers out there and post it somewhere.
