Re: [S10/S10e Fan Problems Collecting Info for Lenovo] S10 fan runs too fast, too often, too loud

I have observed the S10e with new bios 66ww for a few days now and must definitely say that the fan is spinning more often and louder than before under 57ww.

I find disgraceful the fact that neither Lenovo, nor Mark nor someone else is making a clear (and official) statement referring to our problem. And there have been 832 posts! Is there a hardware problem regarding the cooling of the components, is there a software (bios) issue, is there going to be a bios solution for controlling the fan etc ... all the questions stated earlier in this thread. Why are you remaining silent?!? That's how you lose customers. Me you've already lost.

So long and thanks for all the fish!

After more than 800 posts on the same thread, it is hard to believe that Lenovo will provide a software solution. Moreover, it is hard to believe that they have such a solution. So, as a common sense conclusion, every day I am more and more convinced that is a hardware problem, something that Lenovo, considering the consequences, will never accept.

Has anyone experienced any adverse effects from taking the fan off the power supply?

Call off the search! It runs in the family :smileyhappy:

 

I'm loving my S10e so when I was shopping about for my next "main" laptop I bought an as new Lenovo 3000 N200 Core 2 Duo on eBay for a steal. It seems that the S10e isn't the only noisy Lenovo about! Great laptop otherwise

Re: [S10/S10e Fan Problems Collecting Info for Lenovo] S10 fan runs too fast, too often, too loud

I have an order out for a S10 and an S10e for my wife but now I am thinking of canceling those and getting an Acer Aspire One.  ...I setup my neighbors AOD150 and now I really want one of those instead... so quiet, and runs very cool, but then again Acer is known for their Customer Service (rather lack thereof) and often times they have issues with the screen/chasis being easily broken... so then again, I will probably keep my orders open...

 

Does any one have an idea if the S10 is better than the S10e (or vice-versa) for heat/fan noise, or are they basically same machine with a different a screen(glossy/matte), resolution, and whatnot?

 

I have no fan issues with my T61.  Also, I agree with consolidating this thread or making a "solutions thread" of some kind... as I can no longer locate that post about a user created application/script, that helps the issue... or other "solutions" for the fan noise - not that i need that information yet... but want to have it ready for when my items arrive...

 

thanks for the info ...feel free to PM me any info you may have.

At the university I teach I highly recommend S10e to my students. I myself have 2 of them, one at home which I use many hours a day, and another one at the uni which I use for teaching. I wouldn't recommend anything else, really. Also works wonderfully with a beamer, much better than I thought.

I like my s10e, the fan is a little louder than I'd like, but with a 6 cell battery this device makes the perfect tag along for an I.T. Guy.

Re: [S10/S10e Fan Problems Collecting Info for Lenovo] S10 fan runs too fast, too often, too loud

My Lenovo S10's fan is hardly loud when it's on.

If there's noise going on around me I usually don't even hear it. 

Every laptop and desktop I've tried and have used has always had a louder fan than the one on my S10.

So I don't even understand the point of this thread. 

 

The loudest sound my S10's fan makes would be comparable to me slowly blowing air out of my mouth.

So either all of you have somehow received a bad batch, or you just have sensitive ears.

 

 My S10 is using BIOS 56, never had a need to upgrade.
