T580: Fan make a lot of noise

2020-06-06, 1:25 AM

Hello,

 

I have T580 laptop, the fan is too noisy even if I run just lightweight application like google chrome.

 

I have 16Go Ram, Core I7 8th gen, and the laptop still under warranty.

 

Is there any solution, I'll be very grateful.

 

 

Kind regards,

Youness

The fan noise comes from you putting your laptop in places it shouldn't be.

On blankets, in bed, on the couch and in a backpack or bag while it's running.

This makes the fans force dust and lint from such locations into the laptop.

That will restrict the air from flowing where it should, and that makes the laptop hot.

When a laptop gets hot, it turns it's fans to maximum to cool down, and avoid getting overheated.

This has little effect because of all the dust blocking the air flow.

So now the laptop fans has to stay at max, and still they can't get the temperature down to where it should be.

That is why the fans make such a noise.

You need to contact someone who can clean out all the dust and lint from everywhere inside that laptop.
