Lenovo Yoga 720 Buzzing Fan

2017-10-25, 6:19 AM

I was very happy with this laptop, had for about 2 months. But just recently, it started to have a very loud, grinding/chainsaw/gear like sound whenever the laptop got slightly more than warm. In the past, the fan was very quiet, with the same work load.

 

It also happens on startup or wakeup from sleep. I don't know what to do and why would this happen?

In the situations you describe, the fan usually goes to high speed and in that dase it seems to have the problem.

Even when it's not on high load, it sometimes happens; randomly too. Sometimes the fan is on, but it doesn't make that buzzing sound.

Same problem here exactly. Buzz. Whirr. Mine is going back if it is up to me. It is less than a month old and I cannot solve it. Before she gets too old, I will chat with service tomorrow and demand they take it back. (Yoga 720/i7/512GB).

Did the return/replacement process go smoothly? I'm considering in doing that too; albeit I still need to use it right now.
