Pulsing fan problem on E430/E530 - counting owners

2013-04-05, 5:15 AM

Well, I think it's time to make some action!

 

First of all. let's count ourselves as victims of pulsing fan in E430/E530.

 

Please, write a message in style:

 

 

 

1. Model of notebook - E430 or E530

 

2. BIOS version

 

3. Date of buying of your notebook.

 

 

P.S. You can look up for a BIOS version with freeware program CPU-Z:

http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/cpu-z.html

or direct link to exe - http://www.cpuid.com/downloads/cpu-z/1.63-setup-en.exe

Go to "Mainboard" tab - "BIOS" - "Version"
