useless in public spaces

2009-04-10, 10:17 AM

 

 

 

I did buy this pc for 5 months ago to replace my beloved T61P on traveling.  But yet still after 5 months of waiting for new bios with better fan control nothing good has happen.  Why not make a simple fan program that gives us a option for changing this by our own?  I've read people cut of the power to the fan beacuse their crazy from all of the noise... Trying to replace hardware in there with no help from Lenovo.... Is that what you want us to do?

 

 

 

Will it blend?

maybe give the TPfancontrol a go see whether it helps.

I hear you (and the fan).  But I've pretty much come to accept it.  After trying to find a replacement including a flaky HP Mini and a couple ASUS units, the S10 is still the best in terms of the screen, keyboard (no flex), port layout, and build quality (amazing).

 

If I have to deal with the fan, I guess that's the trade-off.

Go to this thread:

A user by the name dresslerc has created a wonderful program called S10 Fan Control.  I think you'll find that it helps a lot.  If he could just solve the battery recognition problem, for me the laptop would be perfect.  Give it a try ok?  You'll love your S10 with it.

I totally agree with CEMA65, and for extended battery life, you should try this neat tool: http://www.s10lenovo.com/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=755 It's a program that lets you turn off the hardware you're not using - thus saving power and extending battery life.
