Noisy fan on thinkpad yoga 14 20dm

2017-05-31, 22:09 PM

Got the laptop two days ago and I'm pretty much happy with it except for an extremely loud fan. I've tried updating BIOS and changing the power settings, but with no luck. Is this a normal issue on this model? Can it be fixed by software or will I have to change the fan?


Appreciate any help I can get

Hi, welcome to the forum.


It is always hard to define on a forum how noisy is a fan, because everybody has its own perception of it.


If the TP Yoga fan it is not noisy for some time and it suddenly rise up, I think it can be interesting to monitor the temperature (Like with OpenHWMonitor) of the computer to see if it rise too, and also you can check (Ctrl+Alt+Del on the task admin) if there is any strange application that is running taking over the processor that makes it rise the temperature.


My other idea will be using "Lenovo Companion" to have your driver (especially the Thinkpad Power Driver) updated.
