T60 emitting loud noise from fan

2008-11-17, 17:35 PM

Hello,

 

I've been searching around for a possible solution to this problem, but didn't find anything major dusts trapped within the fan housing.  The noise is especially pronounced when I plug in the AC, not so much when I'm using the battery.  I downloaded fanspeed to monitor my pc's temperature, and found it to exceed 180 degrees F when running memory intensive programs, sometimes staying at around 200 degree F, in short I can feel alot of heat being emittied through the keypad. The noise is annoying and I believe the fan to be the main culprit, however I read somewhere that an AC malfunction is a possibility.  The laptop is at factory settings, although I did uninstall lenovo power management to fix an exisiting problem before.  Does anyone have inputs?

Go to Support/Downloads and download the updated power manager and power mangement driver.  Install both, this should correct the problem.

 

Have a nice day :smileyhappy:

SOLUTION:  Go to support/downloads and download and install the May 2011 Bios Update Utility 2.27 and the Power Manager 1.99g.  Lenovo has finally fixed the temperature fan control bug.
