Re: E530 - pulsing/whiny fan @ no/low load

2013-07-22, 16:24 PM

The only thing we can do is to advise our friends not to buy a Lenovo.

In my opinion this bios-update was just the attempt to fix a problem which can't be fixed cause of a build failure. The only thing they could do would be an accommodation and to make the bios fully compliant with acpi standards!

Hi can anyone tell me if pulsing is already gone for you? Because I have flashed latest bios same day it came out and pulsing was just with lower intensity. Now in high summer temperatures, pulsing is as before bios update for me. Its terrible.

In my case, pulsing gone, as well, but in low temperatures, fan is still running. Bad.

 

And I do not have the chance to control the fan from the operating system, but, finally, my father wanted to renew his computer, so I pass him the E530 and I go for an MSI laptop...

Hi guys, I told that I would have renounce to complain to Lenovo for the noise, till today.

Today I discovered with horror that the problems to BIOS and cooling system is far worse and DANGEROUS than I thought, please read on and BE CAREFUL.

I put my E530 in my backpack in standby mode, put into my car and drove toward home for about one hour. When I picked up again the backpack IT WAS HOT, WAY HOT, then i picked the laptop and it was scorching, with a smell of burned insulation, I barely hanled it and opened the lid, to discover that it was turned on but with a black screen, then I rebooted it and saw several BIOS errors, "Fan error" one of them. Windows booted, the LCD now has stains due to the excessive hot, the laptop has a burning smell, I have an headache because of that smell, and thanks to God the lithium battery did not caught fire.

So, be warned standby mode and HIBERNATION mode are NOT SAFE, later on I tried both, and tried also to deactivate the Windows "reboot on error" flag (it has nothing to do with, because it is a BIOS issue, but tried it too for completeness).

I am going to sue Lenovo for this, for the damage and the danger, because this is dangerous for people, I did not even call their support, I don't want to waste my time anymore. This message is just for you, BE CAREFUL, I hope that moderators will not delete this message, and ban me from forum like WhinyFan, but I have not much confidence on this...

Good luck to all of you.
