T510 Laptop strong smell, help

Have a new T510 laptop and love it.  However, noticed a very strong smell of burning plastic or chemicals that has not gone away after 2 months.  In a small office the smell is so strong it gets me nauseous and must take a break as I start to feel dizzy.


Any experience with this and suggestions or insight?

Hi and welcome to the forum!

I think the best option would be to have it examined by lenovo support under warranty. Support's telephone can be found here:-

Hope this helps.

Re: T510 Laptop strong smell, help

if you are getting sick from smelling the vent fume, then stop using it and call warranty.
