Re: Yoga 910 crazy loud fan even when CPU at <35%

Hi Amy_lenovo, you're the last hope. When is BIOS V.36 available which is really going to make the difference with no nasty fan noises anymore? thanks for your feedback!

New positive review rates the 910 highly, but they even mention the "loud fan" as a negative too!

Re: Yoga 910 crazy loud fan even when CPU at <35%

Hi Amy,

 

After following the instrutions you posted (update BIOS firmware & WLAN driver), my Yoga 910 still experiences the same fan noise.

 

My system info:

Yoga 910-13IKB Laptop (ideapad)

Machine Type80VF
Operating SystemWindows 10 (64-bit)

 

Is there any other solution that will solve the issue?

The BIOS updates, regardless how many, will NOT fix the fan noise people! It's a problem with the fan itself or maybe the venting, (although I doubt that). A BIOS update can reduce the amount of spinning by adjusting various parameters and limits used for temperature and perhaps RPM factors, but it's just not going to resolve the NOISE. At this point, I think they have the've done pretty much all they can do with the BIOS alone. If you are thinking the magical BIOS update will stop the noise, you're going to be dissapointed. Some respondents have even posted they have no noise at all even with fan spinning so that would be indicative of a different fan part as the venting would be the same.

 

If you simply cannot live with the fan noise, I'd see about getting something else before you lose your return window. For me personally, it's really not that bad and I love the machine... but that's me. Don't hold out hope for the BIOS to "fix" this one!

Agreed! This is beyond a BIOS fix. Lenovo needs to offer a replacement or refund for those with the faulty fans.

I don't think a product recall is warranted or viable. It's not like we have exploding batteries or a major fault. It's more of an annoyance than anything else. I had an issue years back with a Dell laptop. They sent a tech to my office and he replaced the part right there. Issue solved. Levono may need to come up with a similar action here. Identify the noise... which really should not be hard to do... they KNOW what it is, they're not stupid! These thin light laptops have so much jammed into them the repairs are not easy. If the fan is soldered into the board for example, that would obviously not be such a simple fix. Is it a modular fan and easily replaced? I just wish they'd finally address it... and determine a course of action. Public reviews even complain about the noise so while I'm sure they will deal with it in future models, we need to have ours fixed somehow. Sending them out for new units, and having to start over again with a brand new system is not convenient for me so I'd suggest imaging the drive and re-imaging your entire system to the new unit if that is in fact the method of replacement. As I've said numerous times, it's not THAT big of a deal for me but for some of you it seems to be intolerable so I guess well see what Levono does.

I would really appreciate if you could provide a solution for lenovo yoga 900 as well. A lot of lenovo forums for yoga 900 have been left unattended by professionals at lenovo and no solution has been posted yet. Would you please look into that and leave a solution there? This issue is very frustrating and it becomes embarrassing to use my laptop in classes and libraries. Please fix this asap.

Thanks,

Jay

The noise improved with the BIOS update and quiet mode setup.
However, I am now experiencing the continuously (and annoying) running fan on my Yoga 910 (wasn't like that...).
Uninstalled and reinstalled the Qualcomm Atheros WLAN driver several times and it does not stop :-(
Are you still investigating this issue?
Waiting for some news, the machine would be unbeatable if it was not for this :(
Thanks,
