Lenovo E531 Problems?

2013-07-08, 10:24 AM

Hello guys,

 

After browsing through the E530 pulsating fan thread.. iam really a bit shocked.. i expected such behaviour more from Samsung/Asus but not Lenovo...:

It seems like the lenovo engineers arent able to fix the pulsating fan issues since a year? thats embarassing... as far as i understand the newest bios is a bit better... but now the fan never stops spinning after it starts... even if the cpu is pretty cool and there's no need to let the fan on...

Thats a sign of a epic fail @ the firmware.....

 

So my real Question is if the E531 Series still suffering from this embarassing problem?

Second question is if the E531 is ACPI compatible... or is it just like the E530: u cant even get the fan speed through userspace programs.. because they failed to comply with the ACPI standard....

 

looking forward for answers.. especially from the E531 _USERS_

 

best regards,

jurba

I´m considering buying the Edge E531 so it would be really great if someone could share fan/noise-experiences with the E531.

 

Thank you!

Sure I have FullHD display :) pretty neat but I have problems with brightness control on my Windows 7 installation :( 

I have to look deeper into that :(

Okay :) I got the new unit like a week ago and everything is fine :) no problems at all. But there is one I have been experiencing with Lenovo Power Management. Sometimes that software gets bugged and I have to restart notebook, becouse I can't mute sound or so :p but after restarting everything works fine.

 

Oh and one thing, the passive mode of cooling does note seems to work, but the notebook it self is really quiet :)

Erm? How do I have to understand this? Does the fan stop sometimes or not? First you wrote it does and now that passive mode isn't working....?!

well sorry for confusing you I have to make my self clear. After some weeks I noticed, that while I am at school on battery working in Enterprise Architect or just using internet, doing office stuff or modeling in Arena software the fan is completly silent and is off :) this is awsome. Also it sometimes go really but really quietly while on adapter.
