Yoga 920 UHD Battery and Temperature

Q: Yoga 920 UHD Battery and Temperature

Hi, there. I've bought a UHD Yoga 920 about a month ago. A couple of weeks ago I had a very bad problem with its battery life, 2 hours and dead. But it seems it was a Windows problem, because after some updates, the battery life got better. Still, I let it looping a 40 minutes video and from 100% battery, it died in 6:30 hours (battery saver on and WiFi on). I feel it is not ok. What do you think? Core Temp also shows me 55-60 degrees celsius (130-140 F) and I only have a browser opened, with just some forum tabs, so no video playback, nothing.

Hi everyone,I want to ask yoga 910 owners what is their average CPU temperature?As for me, my laptop is very hot guy, when I do nothing - like now while writing this text with 10 open tabs and almost nothing in background, CPU has t=55C, with  10-15 CPU load. But in my daily work I open Word, Excel, some specific programs, 20+ tabs in firefox and sometimes listenning to music. In this situation CPU load doesn't very high - 40%-50% in general, but temperature rises to 60-70C and could be 90+ in peak. Is it normal? My previous Asus wasn't so hot.PS. I have i7 version with FHD monitor, latest bios in "balance mode" and "better perfomance" in Windows power mode.

Hi all,I recently bought the lenovo 710 14ikb, the i7 version. Overall very pleased with the look, feel and performance of the laptop.  As many i did notice the excessive cooling and noise coming from the fan, in both idle state and when performing simple tasks such as photo viewing or opening multiple windows. I tried updating the BIOS, didn't help( and can't find the advanced bios settings activation). I installed NBFS and this does help by manually controlling the fan speed not to go in full activity at the low BIOS set temperatures (at approx 50 degrees celsius). Now that I have installed the fans, I keep an active eye on the cpu temperature through the monitoring icon provided by the NBFS tool and am concerned about the temp fluctuations.  When starting the laptop, it boots ( plugged) at 35 degrees, shooting up to 60 degrees when activating all apps etc, then drops to an idle between 38 and 45 degrees. However any activity that requires a heavier load ( opening photoviewer/instagram) and multiple windows creates these spikes of temperatures rising up to 62 - 72 degrees celsius after which they come back down again.  What's your experience with the cpu temp spikes with the 710? Are more users experiencing these temp spikes? I know it's relatively oke up to 100 degrees, and I am going to stress test the cpu, but it feels rather unstable.    

A:lenovo yoga 710 cpu temperature concerns

it Update: Installed the second BIOS update that was mentioned on the forum. Now with NBFC on read only status the fan indeed is not as active, so it appears Lenovo has adjusted the fan control on the temperatures.  However, with the laptop in high performance mode , i opened Opera browser with youtube and three other windows and the temperatures are increasing to 75-83 degrees celsius.  I believe we should be able to use the laptop at optimum settings without experiencing these unhealthy cpu temps. Could it simply be subpar quality of the fans used, the kaby lake cpu quality or is this a defect?

I purchased this notebook used.While in normal work,like browsing the web,watching youtube videos,listening to music temperature of the CPU hits maximum of 85 C while the CPU is on its full frequency.It's usually in 65-75 C range, because frequency of the CPU changes frequently.Most of the time CPU frequency stays at 792 MHz.Is this the reason to worry about,should I change its thermal paste and maybe blow out the dust if there is any?I am not planing to use this notebook at it's 100 % CPU load.I ran Prime95 but temperature hit 100 C limit in a second, then CPU throttled and it stayed around 95 C then I stopped Prime95.

Hi there! I've had my Yoga for about 2 years now, and recently updated it when Lenovo Settings prompted me to download Lenovo Vantage instead (probably about.... two weeks ago or so?).  Since I downloaded Vantage, though, the color temperature of my screen keeps changing. Sometimes it has more of a blue tone, and other times it goes ridiculously yellow. It's not happening in response to changes in lighting (it's happened three times as I write this post, and I've been sitting on my couch with my blinds closed the entire time), and I've made sure dynamic brightness control as well as eye care mode are turned off. Even with both turned off, my screen keeps changing color, and it's only happened after installing Vantage--none of my other programs would be doing this, and hadn't been affecting things until the installation. Any thoughts?

I am a Yoga 700-14ISK user for 2 years. And I had encounter serveral issues with this laptop before (and the service center helped me to fix them) However, now there is an issue I just have now - my battery is draining fast like 1% lost per 2-3 min for light usage (browsing on Chrome or doing my schoolwork either on Microsoft Office or Google Drive) I suspected it was due to my battery wear level. However, as I monitored it, I realised it keep fluctuating (from 19.64% to 42.02%) until I re-calibrate which gives me 38.51% and then 38.71% after a charge to 60%. Is it possible the battery wear level can cause the quick drain in battery?  Is this battery wear level normal? I would also like to point out that I had the battery changed over a year ago and I normally used my laptop for schoolwork and gaming (occasionally now after realising the issue.) I am also going to have an internship (at least 6 months) from July so I am very worried that my laptop can't last long especially its battery. Hence, should I go to a Lenovo service center and request for a battery replacement? Please give me any possible reasons on why the laptop battery starts to drain fast and its battery wear level sharp increase, and also possible solutions for these issues. I would like to know more about it in order to sustain my laptop at least for a year.

Hi,

I recently purchased Dell Inspiron 3542 (Nov14), and I'm getting a battery error when my house is a bit cold.

"Your battery is temporarily disabled. Please turn off your computer and try again when the unit is back to the operational temperature"

This message shows up at bios check and only option is for me to press f2 to enter bios, which doesn't give me any other option. This occurs very frequently, and I never saw such an issue with any other laptop I have owned.

To test, I removed the battery and ran the PC plugged in -- and it worked just fine.
Is there a way to prevent this message from showing up and allowing me to use the laptop?

Thank you.

A:Your battery is temporarily disabled. Please turn off your computer and try again when the unit is back to the operational temperature

My Yoga 3 pro is still a nightmare and so far is unusable given onging battery problems. However I digress. The thing wouldn't charge past 72% and took 2 days to get to that from 51%. So yet again I searched the net hoping to find something new and I noted yet another updated battery guage realeased only a few days ago. I also noted that someone had suggested deleting the windows battery drivers in Device Manager after disconnecting the battery which I figured couldn't hurt so went ahead. Once I reconnected the battery, plugged it in and waited for it to download the battery drivers, I noted it didn't install the ACPI component. Now lo and behold, I have no battery guage at all. In fact it says "The battery is not used", but of course it is. I then tried the latest battery guage driver but no improvement. Can anyone help in this age old problem? Cheers

hchentanshankar,
Welcome to the community.
I am sorry to read that you are having this trouble.  The battery failing is the most likely culprit but you should check to see if there are any problems with either the notebook or Ac adapter before rushing out and replacing the battery.
I would start by checking the bios, start the system tapping F2 to enter the bios, you can also tap F12 and choose bios from the menu.  Once in the bios look for the option for AC adapter warnings, if they are disabled enable them and save changes. If there is a problem with the adapter you should start getting errors about the adapter.
If the Adapter seems alright, disconnect the battery from the system and power down the notebook.  Wait an hour or so and then replace the battery and restart the system and see if you continue to get the message.   If you can run the notebook on battery only allow the battery to fully discharge and then charge it again and see if the problem returns.
I know that this may not be possible short of buying a new battery but if possible try a power adapter and battery and see if the problem continues.  This way you can find out if the problem follows the battery the ac adapter or the notebook.
Please let me know what you find out.

To start with, let me describe the problem: My battery's behavior is erratic and strange. It charges to "100%" (or so it seems to think) in 15 minutes. Watching the percentage, I see it go from 15%-16%-17% and then jump to 36% and move up from there, and then jump again. It skips over up to 20% in just a second. The same goes for it discharging. I'll be using my laptop, and see it be at 35% and literally a minute later it goes right to 4% and I get the "your battery is very low" notification. A couple of days ago I kept it running instead of plugging it in and it functioned at 0% for about 20 minutes doing low-demand tasks. I've run windows battery tests and lenovo vantage tests and they all say health is good, but that the full charge reaches about 10000 less watts than the battery was originally designed with.Overall my battery only has a life of an hour, and i've had the thing for about a year. I started noticing the problem after I ran linux off a flash drive for school purposes. I never installed linux to the machine, I only ran it using the boot drive. After that I noticed these issues. Is it possible that Linux may have screwed up my hardware, or at least the way the computer reads battery data? Any help would be appreciated.

This thread is for listing your battery info and disscussing battery strategies only. Please list your information in the following format -  Model of laptop -Screen size and type -Did you get it new (Y/n) -How long have you had it -Listed design capacity of battery -Current full charge capacity -How long does it last on a full charge test -  How do you generaly use your laptop -  Note: if you aren't using the Lenovo software to view battery health you can still run a report in Windows 10 to gather this info. To do so, open an admin command prompt or Powershell and run the following command - powercfg /batteryreport. Next browse to the folder and open the report.For the full charge test charge it all the way up and turn off any screen power management, sleep and hibernate, make low and reserve power management do nothing, set critical power management to 1% and  set the action to hibernate. Also set your screen saver to 1 min and turn on the 'mystify' screen saver (so it will use a little GPU).For the 'how do you generally use your laptop,' please list out what your general usage entails (just light browsing or intensive video editing) and also your charge strategy.

I also tried to recalibrate but with no effect.The FRU number is 00HW026 but I wasn't able to find a reliable source for a new one in Germany.Does anyone has similar problems? Or does know where to get a new battery? Thanks.

Is there any reason my Yoga won't charge the battery over 59%? It says plugged in but not charging? I tried charging it with the laptop off but that didn't seem to help. Please help!!!











Solved!

A:Yoga won't charge battery over 59%

It's the Lenovo Energy Management settings.Go to Control Panel >> Power Options >> Change plan settings >> Change advanced power settings >> Lenovo Energy Management >> Enable Lenovo Energy Management.Change the battery setting from "Optimized Battery Health" to "Maximum Battery Life." By only partially charging the battery, the software is prolonging the lifespan of the battery itself.  This is true of all laptop batteries.  If you often leave your computer plugged in, it's best to keep this setting enabled.  If you can anticipate your mobile useage in advance, you can just turn off the feature at appropriate times.It would be nice if the setting was easier to change.  If somebody knows an easier way, feel free to post it.I suppose you could always put a shortcut to "C:\Program Files (x86)\Lenovo\Energy Management\Energy Management.exe" on your start screen, taskbar or desktop.  Alternatively, you could put a shortcut on the desktop, assign a hotkey to it, and super-hide the shortcut (a little more advanced).

Assuming both are genuine Lenovo. All dimensions except height (which noone bothered to measure) - are the same; even if the 370 battery is slightly higher and won't fit without lower case modification - it's nothing a rotary tool can't fix. 370 battery: 15.28V 51Wh (FRU 01AV433)260 battery: 15.2V 44Wh (FRU 00HW027) Is there any particular reason why it definitely won't work? I'm really on the verge of ordering one and trying for myself, but I'm not sure how does embedded controller (EC) determine if the battery plugged is correct,  and not really want to waste time if the idea is doomed to failure because some technical quirk I am not aware of - hence the question.  Why: while 370 is newer, it has glossy PWM display which ain't bonded with digitizer vs bonded matte PWM-free on 260. 260's weakest spot, on the other hand, is poor battery life - larger 370 battery could definitely resolve this problem. I'm bored until newer Thinkpads are introduced at CES 2018 anyway - so why not give it a try, if there is any chance it may work.

This is for anyone who constantly has Chrome with at least 7 tabs open and a few extensions on. How long does your battery last? I have the latest drivers and software versions and I'm curious to see if my battery life matches up with that of others' laptops.

I've been using this Yoga 510-14ISK for almost two years now, and I recently realised that the WiFi speed changes drastically between battery power and plugged in charger. Sitting in the same spot, I can get the full speed of my home WiFi if I plug in the charger, but I can get only 1-2 mbps if I use battery power.Has anyone encountered a similar issue? If so, how did you resolve it?
