High CPU usege and fan noise by Lenovo System Update Service

2021-02-10, 22:30 PM

Hi all,
since a few days I noted that my Lenovo T460 laptop generates too much fan noise.

 

After some checks I noted that "Lenovo System Update Service" consume too much CPU.

 

 

Fan noise decresed too much when I stopped this service.

 

How can I solve it?


I would avoid to remove this software from laptop.

 

Best regards
Federico

I got the same issue on my T480. It seems that this is a common thing across Thinkpad models (maybe others)...Someone in another thread said that a fix is coming.

 

What i've been doing is force ending task through task manager on the Lenovo Update Application. I also called Lenovo but the person on the line was oblivous to the issue and told me to go to Best Buy or staples and look to get the fan replaced...which is ridiculous. its a software issue.

I applied the update to a ThinkPad X1 Gen 3, but the fan still sounds like it is trying to take off.

Then you're having another problem.  Look in Task Manager to find out what is using CPU, and if it's not the SuService problem being discussed here, then please start another topic.

Not exactly helpful. This started after 5.0.7.113 was installed on my machine. It was constantly increasing the CPU and Fan. After installing 5.0.7.117, my CPU is normal, but Fan continue to take off every time i open System Update. Seems related to me.

Hi, I have a T14 AMD and I installed Lenovo Vantage which seems to use a System Update plugin. Is System Update as a standalone application supported on newer laptops as an alternative to Vantage?
