Re: y570 fan problem (not working?)

hey Zehn, I couldn't help noticing your battery capacity. Where could you get a battery with a capacity ten times bigger than the standard battery?Smiley Surprised

Hi Blue,

 

that was a lie... Smiley LOL  old reading was almost 200 W/h, what a dream battery.

I'm now using the new version of Hardware Monitor and my battery capacity

is around 60 W/h.

 

To be precise... nominal  5200 mA/h  x 11 V  =  57200 mW/h.

 

savvy?...  Zehn

Re: y570 fan problem (not working?)

battery capacity is in mAh or mWh, not mW/h Smiley Wink

wait, now I'm confused Smiley Embarassed

 

your battery capacity is at 60653 mWh, while click0230 and rkdeane are at 6216mWh and 5616 mWh, as shown on CPUID HW monitor capture.

Mine is the same as rkdeane.

I think the there's a confusion between mAh and mWh at battery capacity unit in CPUID HW Monitor Smiley Wink

 

thanks for the explanation anywaySmiley Very Happy

Re: y570 fan problem (not working?)

Blue...

 

you are correct, it should be Wh as a unit of energy, W/h refers to the change of power per hour.

I believe most laptop battery packs have a capacity of about 40 to 60 Wh so the HW Monitor

readout from Y570 machines is false.

Could you test your Y570 with another System Information software?

 

I'm curious... Zehn

Hi Harsh,

 

touch buttons are managed by Energy Management, please try if this may fix the problem...

download appropriate  Lenovo Energy Management Software first...

http://consumersupport.lenovo.com/in/en/DriversDownLoads/APR_Driver_List.aspx?CategoryID=867235&OS=0

 

go to  Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Programs and Features  and UN-install  Energy Management...

shut down  then start your Y570 and install the program anew...

 

BTW... have you cleaned your cooling system recently? Please look here...

hope it helps... Zehn
