Yoga 910-13IKB Laptop Gets Extremely Hot during basic use

During basic use of the Lenovo Yoga 910, it has become extremely hot. The fans are also very loud. I understand this behavior during gaming, but this should not happen during basic tasks like web browsing. All the demo units I have used in stores do not have this issue. Is there any solution to this issue.

Re: Yoga 910-13IKB Laptop Gets Extremely Hot during basic use

Hello Brodyddavidow

Thanks for using the Lenovo forums.

Lenovo has released a BIOS update with a new feature called Quiet Mode to provide a quieter fan experience for customers with Yoga 910-13IKB and 13IKB Glass laptops. Please note that this is a two-step process. After updating to the BIOS v.35, it will be necessary to then go into the BIOS and enable Quiet Mode.

Quiet Mode achieves a lower overall fan volume by making minimal changes to CPU performance and system temperature.

Version 2JCN35WW

Modify thermal and DPTF setting, add Quiet Mode.

  • Enter BIOS setup, which can be done by holding down “FN+F2” keys during system start up or pressing the Nova button when the device is shut down.
  • Go to page “Configuration” and change system performance mode to “Quiet Mode”.
  • Select “Exit saving changes” or in page “Exit” or F10. System will reboot.

BIOS v.35 can be downloaded here:

For customers experiencing a continuously running fan on Yoga 910-13IKB and 13IKB Glass systems, please upgrade to the latest WLAN driver, v. It can be downloaded

here: If this does not change the fan behaviour, try uninstalling the Qualcomm Atheros WLAN Installer, then reinstalling the driver. 

The Qualcomm Atheros WLAN Installer can be found in Settings -> Apps -> Qualcomm Atheros WLAN Installer. Select it and then right-click to open a menu. Select Remove It. Restart the system.



Hope this helps, let us know how you get on.
