Hello, as you can see in my other posts, i have problems with this nvidia, i wanst able to update the driver before because it was saying that the card is different than the driver and lenovo kept ignoring my emails and contact approaches, but the latest driver worked fine. The driver somehow doesn't speed up the fan when it gets warm and now the hardware scan gives me the foillowing:

The cooling is managed by BIOS AFAIK, not by the Nvidia drivers. See my post on your other thread regarding cooling

Pardon my jumping in, but which tool are you using to run the "hardware scan"?

Part of Lenovo Solution Center, yes?
Looking at the LSC documentation: http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloads/detail.page?&LegacyDocID=MIGR-73784 the W701ds isn't in the supported systems list. Maybe LSC is giving you a false warning?
Looking at the W701ds driver matrix: http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/research/hints-or-tips/detail.page?&DocID=HT072378 it appears that PC Doctor or Lenovo ThinkVantage Toolbox were the supported diagnostics packages.

It is lenovo solution center, but the name in control panel appears a lenovo system health and diagnostics. I scan every couple of months and never gives faults except for now. I see it is not, but the system update utility is which installed me the lenovo solution center.
