Uh, yeah.  You clearly have a very different problem.  Could you please start a different thread?  I'd look at gettting a replacement, as that is severely more problematic.  No sense discussing here.

Not sure if there is anything to get excited about, is there with an impending BIOS update?  According to what I've read here, a potentially new BIOS update would restore the IRST toggle for those who lost that feature when upgrading to a previously available (which has since been removed) BIOS version.   There has been no word on how this upcoming version would help in any way to quiet these fans.

JLenovo you and the poster before you should create your own topic for these things, but your yoga should definitely not become "boiling hot"... I think you have a fan problem, maybe they're not both running or there is no free airflow due to dust pile up - but that's usually only after long use.

 

Probably a good idea to take it back to the store, doesn't sound normal. There's no way to control the fans/set the thresholds right now.

Thanks guys - there are about 3 different threads on the yoga getting hot, going back to Nov and no-one seems to address them, so I thought the issue might get more attention here, on what seems to be the definitive 'fan / heat' thread

Re: Yoga 13 Fan Noise

Hi everybody.

 

I've been following this thread for a while, because i have the same problem with my Lenovo YOGA laptop 13" 

I send my laptop for a repair, because the support told me, that it was a hardware failure, that caused my fan, to make such loud a noise..

 

Today i got the news for my Laptop, from the repair department in Germany. And they said, its a common problem that the fan in the Yoga runs at to high a speed. and therfore the fan sounds very loud.

 

BIOS UPDATE IS COMMING SOON!!

They told, me that a new bios update is beeing realised very soon, (In the next 2 to 3 weeks) and that will resolve the issue with the fan speed. So i would have to wait for the update, and afterwords, it should run just fine.

 

I hope this issue will be resolved with the next BIOS update, and it will make my YOGA quiet again, because i really like my YOGA.

 

Hope you guys can use my update, and hopefully, we will all have quiet YOGA's in the future..

 

Regards: Lars, Denmark

Please go to the first post in this thread, then click go to solution on that post.  

 

This thread is solved in that the BIOS promised is available for download - there is a link to the KB article that contains it.  Here is the direct link to the KB artcle.

I read it, it said the solution to this topic was already given.

 

It hasn't!

 

There is a link to an EC update - yes, but for me and others in this thread that have tried it, it is not solving the problem.

It improves the issue somewhat, but does not solve the issue to the extent people expect. I'm grateful something was done, but again, it hasn't solved the issue.

 

- Having the fans off only the first 10 seconds in Windows and then reverting to the old situation is not desireable.

- Cycling the fans many times within very short periods when actually using the laptop more intensively is not desireable.

 

Lenovo, have another look at this EC update. It needs just a little more work in my opinion. I'm not expecting perfection, just enough improvement to warrant this update to be applied in the first place.

 

Hope someone from lenovo actually reads this... Thanks.

After using the EC update for a couple days, I agree it is in need of improvement. I only get about 20 seconds with no fan before it kicks in and once it does, it doesn't shut off. Hopefully the upcoming BIOS will improve the situation.
