Yoga 900 Fan Noise Out of Control

I've been trying to do some research on this but have come up short at every turn. I just bought a Yoga 900 and the fan noise is just ridiculous. It's so annoying and I'd like to know if there's anything I can do about it. It mostly occurs when I'm playing games but it's just SO loud something seems off. Does anyone know what I can do about this?

Re: Yoga 900 Fan Noise Out of Control

Hi there, Baeleigh –

 

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

 

Fan is very loud when the CPU load increases. Possible causes could be dried lubrication in the fan, worn bearings, or just a dust build up. Hence try cleaning the fan once.

 

CPU is running very hot. Applications like tp fan control can tell you the temperature of the CPU and GPU temps above 80C under load are high, and above 90C suggest that the fan or heatsink could be clogged.

 

  1. Did you do a BIOS/driver update recently? Click here to update the latest BIOS driver.

 

  1. If you open up your task manager, do you see any processes that are consuming high percentages of CPU?

 

  1. Also run virus scan with the latest virus definitions and check for no viruses or malware. 

 

  1. You should also install a temp monitoring program and post what your temps are.

 

Update us how it goes.

 

 

 

 

 

Regards,
