Re: S10 fan runs too fast, too often, too loud

2009-02-01, 0:54 AM

The fan noise is undoubtedly the number one reason for dissatifaction of the Lenovo S10/S10e. I have a S10 for more than one month now and do not find it irritating or annoying. It is not the quietest fan I have come across but definitely not the loudest. After going through all the threads on who to solve this - BIOS update, voltage adjustment, CPU frequency change, etc, it would appear that the culprit could just be the fan itself. There must have been a defective batch of fan that is causing all this uproar. It would be great for Lenovo to come out with a statement to settle this once and for all and bring peace to this community. Please!

Mark,

 

I'm so glad that the fan problem is finally "on your radar" as you say.  Hopefully a solution for us S10 owners will be forthcoming :smileyhappy:

 

I purchased my S10 in Florida in December and am experiencing the same problems with some variations that the other users have.  I have experienced only slight relief by downloading the updated BIOS and tweaking some of the power settings, but I'd really appreciate a proper solution as the fan issue seriously mars what would otherwise be an A+, excellent notebook. 

 

Thanks!

So Mark, any updates on the fan issue? It's getting really irritating. It should not take that long to have a BIOS update for the S10 right?

 

Those who has updated your BIOS using the S10e to the S10....any issues and does it help at all? Thinking of updating my S10 BIOS with the S10e BIOS.

I have sent my S10 with loud fan to tech suppor for repair. After two weeks it came back with "we see no problem with it - works as deisgned". I am extremely unhappy about it. I will try to return it, and if they don't take it back I will call American Express and see what options can they offer to getting my money back.

 

If anyone knows of a different small red laptop with VGA out let me know.

While there are a few Lenovo employees roaming around in here helping out on a volunteer basis, this is not an official support channel. Instead, this is designed to be a user-to-user support and discussion forum. You may or may not get an answer directly from one of the Lenovo employees as there are way more of us than them and all of them, even Mark, have full-time jobs doing other things.

I too am frustrated with the fan on this machine, but lets keep it civil.. Mark is the first person at Lenovo to show any interest in this problem.  Although an update would be nice, I highly doubt he is solely responsible for updating the BIOS on the S10s and has little control over what the developers work on.

Hi,

 

if forums.lenovo.com is not officially supported by lenovo, where can we put our concerns about the fan and how can we ask for a fix? What is the official way? Don´t get  me wrong, but I guess many users assume that a forum from lenvo may officially read by lenovo.

 

 

Regards

well if this isn't the way to get help from Lenovo, then there's NO OTHER WAY for help then. I'm one of the people who have a rattling fan problem, and sent it back to Lenovo for repair, but what I got back was the same thing i sent, WITHOUT REPAIRS. I guess Lenovo is just ignoring this issue, unless Mark comes up with a news that will make us feel better. I don't care if I have to send in my laptop one more time if Lenovo decides to fix this problem, but not when they're ignoring it in the depot service center. SO THIS IS OUR ONLY WAY to get our message to them, or else they wouldn't put up this forum in the first place!
