Lenovo X120e Fan Issue

I recently upgraded my Lenovo X120e to Windows 8.1 from Windows 7.  The fan was quiet in Windows 7 when I had all of the proper drivers installed. Now in Windows 8.1, I cannot seem to get the fan quieter again like in Windows 7. The fan stopped at times in Windows 7 as well. Is there a solution to this?

Re: Lenovo X120e Fan Issue



Have you tried running the ThinkVantage System Update utility to see if any new drivers or ThinkPad specific software needs to be applied to your X120e?
