yoga 13 overheating/ uncomfortably warm?

2013-02-01, 19:20 PM

Hello, I bought a yoga 13 last week.  One issue I've encountered is that the bottom of the unit becomes uncomfortably warm, particularly when being used as a laptop while plugged in.  The fan is making noise but I feel very little air movement coming from it; I've used Core Temp to determine that it is hitting up to 68 degrees Celsius (over 150 Fahrenheit).


For a brand new unit that is being used for much other than office work (not running any demanding software or games) I feel like this is hotter than it should be.. it also makes it uncomfortably warm after sitting in my lap for a bit.


Is this a known issue with the model?  or might I have a fan or other problem with my unit?


Thanks for your help!

Welcome to the community.


As you are experiencing noise from the CPU Fan and overheating. To diagnose, I would suggest you to please update the Bios of your system from the below mentioned web link.




Afterwards, please restart and check, if the issue persists then it needs personal assistance of the service technician.
