Yoga 3 14 80jh - Fan Always Running

2017-04-21, 8:47 AM

I have just started using a the above device with Windows 8.1 installed. I'd be really interested to know if there is a way to stop the fan running about 90% of the time.

 

I've read the thread about the high pitched noise, which I don't have.

I've updated all drivers and the bios.

I've run the fan cleaner and taken the back off to check all is well internally.

I've checked in the Tasm Manager to see if anything is being a processor hog but nothing sticks out.

 

Nothing appears to stop the fan running.

 

That said, the machine is very responsive, so it's not all bad!

 

Do I just get myself a cooling pad and deal with it?

 

Or is there anything else I can do/try?

No, I was unaware of that. Looks like exactly what I need.

Thank you very much for your help!

I spoke too soon!

That doesn't appear to work on my machine. The instructions can't be followed exactly as described and the ec.bat file doesn't reboot the machine to update the thermal table.

This *could* be due to the fact that I have updated my bios.

Either way I couldn't get it to update/install.
