Yoga 500-15IBD fan noise



i have the problem that the fan is often too loud. No matter how little or how many programs run or whether the CPU is hot or rather cool. Only at the beginning  the fan ran quietly or in normal volume.


The problem is well known. The Laptop runs on Win8.1. I have installed all possible updates even for BIOS.

I cleaned the fan. Not perfectly.

I also reinstalled Win8.1 . Nothing helps. I have not yet tried to install Win10. One reads it doesnt help also. Can someone help me?

Hi there, Lenovant                    -


Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.


Most probably a program or App is running at the background cause fast spinning fan to cool down CPU temp. 

To figure it out, right click in your taskbar and from the opened menu click on task manager. 


-From top menu click on performance tab then click on resource monitor ==> from top menu click on CPU tab and look at to the Average CPU usage and see which App or Program is using a high percentage of your CPU capacity==> right click on it and end the process. 


Update us how it goes.
