U530 loud whirring noise

2014-07-17, 7:05 AM

I purchased the lenovo ideapad u530 about 6 months ago. Recently, there has been a loud whirring/buzzing noise coming from the laptop (possibly the fan?). It is most noticeable at the bottom near the vents. There seems to be no correlation between what I do on the laptop and the noise. Any ideas as to what the problem may be? Any solutions would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Sanchezz,

 

Welcome to Lenovo Community!

 

I’m sorry to hear that a loud noise is generated in your U530 Laptop near the air vents. This issue can be checked by placing the Laptop on a flat surface while using it and also this might have occurred by the Dust/Foreign particles accumulating on FAN and Air vents. I would suggest you to perform “Dust Removal” feature using LEM (Lenovo Energy Management) installed in the computer. Please let me know the findings.

 

Hope to hear back soon

 

Best Regards

Shiva Kumar

The whirring noise decreased significantly after the dust removal. It only makes the noise now when the laptop is tilted, but even then, it is only for a couple of seconds. Thank you!

It seems that the solution was only temporary. It is once again making loud noises. I tried Dust Removal again with no success.

Hi Sanchezz,

 

As the issue persists even after performing the “Dust Removal”, this issue seems to be hardware related. I would suggest you to contact our Technical Support for further Assistance to get the details of the nearest Authorized Service Center to get the issue analyzed.

Did not fix it for me the first time, but I did it again and it worked.
