System Fan u310 doesn't cool

Q: System Fan u310 doesn't cool

Hi my System/CPU Fan doesnt work anymore... What can i do? How to fix this? I'm using windows 10 at the moment. Thanks for help.

Preferred Solution: System Fan u310 doesn't cool

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !

Sorry to hear of your problem. Is the fan not spinning at all or is the fan spinning, but the laptop feels warmer?

If the fan isn't spinning at all then it most likely needs to be replaced. If the system is still under warranty then I would recommend that you contact Lenovo Support for warranty assistance. If the system is no longer under warranty then you can have a local computer repair service replace the fan or do it yourself if you are comfortable working inside your laptop. Your model's Hardware Maintenance Manual will explain how to dis-assemble the laptop for the fan replacement.

Hardware Maintenance Manual:

If the fan is spinning, but not cooling the laptop then try cleaning the fan and heat sink assembly. Given the time the laptop has been in service these items mostly like are filled with dust which is reducing the laptop's cooling efficiency. Cans of compressed air can be purchased at any electronics store. Just use short bursts of air in each of the laptop's air vents several times or until you no longer see dust being blown out. Avoid long blasts of air as this may damage the fan.

Long story short. My laptop is capable of running a resolution at 1280 x 800 but currently I am running at 1280 x 720 because when I turn on my laptop the resolution doesn't fill up the screen which ends up leaving a black vertical bar on the right side of the screen. (When I am in 1280x720 I have two black bars one running horizontaly on the top, and one vertically on the right side)  I am forced to use 1280 x 720 even though it's still broken because in 1280 x 800 the taskbar is hidden and a lot of my icons are hidden.  Now, the fix that I have for this was when I was booting up the laptop I would open and close the lid before the "start windows normaly" message would pop up, and it would usually have it filled up the whole way but now this fix doesn't work.  Anyone else have this problem?

hi eveyone
What wav editing program like cool edit pro/ adobe audition works well on windows 7?

A:cool edit pro doesn't work in windows 7

Cool Edit Pro is now Adobe Audition.

Professional solutions include, in no particular order: Cubase, Cakewalk Sonar and Sony Sound Forge 9.0e. All great on 7. Go for Sound Forge if you will not be doing any recording. It's a great editor but can record too, though. The others are basically "studio" apps.

A really awesome program that nobody has ever heard of is n-Track Studio. That is definitely worth your time checking out.

I have a athlon xp 2600+, 512 Mb RAM, A 60gB wd hd and a 4gb wd hd motherboard asus a7n8x-x with a geforce fx5200 (fanless) and my case is a 4 bay with 350w font.
My cooling is the font fan, a CUD-725 - 42.08cfm (air flux) and 4200 Rpm, and a font fan on the case, sucking air off the side of the processor.

Well, if i use light applications, the pc works ok.
when i use 3dsmax or any 3dgame, the cpu temp increases very much until the 70°c, when the MB turns the system off for protection.

The only way i can play a 3d Game or Render a Scene in 3dsmax is with the air conditioning on (at a glacial temperature) or with a Fan turned on pointing directly to the cpu (i don't know if you can undestand it. It is not a pc fan. is a REAL FAN) .

A:Help! CanĀ“t cool my system.

You know what? You are weird... <just kidding> Welcome to TechSpot, eomeagher!

A better solution: a fan sucking in from front or on the roof of case, a fan or two sucking in from side, and a fan blowing out from the back of the case. It helps.

P.S. consider a high perfomance copper heatsink with fan for your AMD.

Rather than opening umpteen different threads, have you actually tried to Google for answers?

For this particular question, try googling "temperature sensing software" You`ll probably find Speedfan, which is considered one of the best and it`s free.

A:COOL COOL COOL...literally..

Congrats on your low temps. Is that at idle or full load, and how much does it increase when the CPU is actually working? That's the test of good cooling.

Sandra has a good burn-in routine to heat up your CPU.

I've never really seen the 'burn-in period' actually give you any better cooling. Maybe if you slather the AS on too thick, the fan vibration squeezes the excess out the sides and you then have a thinner layer and better contact.

I'm not familiar with HSFs, especially for A64 so I'll leave that for someone else to comment on.

I have a 4y old Sony VAIO (VGN-NS11J) that stopped working today morning after making a whirring noise

Repeated attempts to restart failed and after many attempts, I managed to get to the Startup Repair mode - after a long time, startup repair says it failed to automatically repair the problem

I managed to run system restore but after a while I got the following message: "System restore failed due to an unspecified error. The disk strucgture is corrupted and unreadable (0X80070571)

My laptop did not come with a Windows Vista CD/Recovery disk

My first priority is to recover a few files in the laptop - if I am able to do this, then I dont mind junking the laptop

Since this is an old laptop, I would prefer not to use an expensive professional to recover the data

Hi, I'd like to see if somebody have any idea of what's happening to my sistem: a Medion M3 Composer with Mobo: MSI Ms-7046 socket 775, P4 3.0HT, DDR-SDRAM.
It has been working flawless for about a year, two days ago, I go boot it, and the WinXP splash sceen got frozen. I powered off the PC and powered on again...Single long beep, that repeats regurarly and no video...no boot.

I tried to reset the CMOS by removing the battery. When I powered the PC back on, it shut off immediately and by itself re-powered on after 2-3 seconds doing the same long beep, no boot, no video.

I tried all kinds, removed, all devices, tried one by one the RAMs, installed another CPU, etc. all with no success.

I tried anothe MoBo, but didn't finish booting (!)...it shut off by itself after a couple of BIOS screens...maybe this motherboard is not fully compatible with the system...or faulty PSU???

Unfortunately when I put the orignal MSI MoBo, and put power, I didn't got any self-suts off...but I smelled what I shouldn't have smelled!!!

Task scheduler and system restore services are running. I confirmed this by typing cmd, then net start in the run line. I have the space allowed on my hard drive set to the max, and there are 25 GB free. I am able to create manual system restore points and they are also created if I install/uninstall a program. I have reinstalled system restore using the sr.inf file. I used the "xpsystemrestoreponitsfrequency.vbs" to change my time interval to 1 hour just to see if it worked, but it didn't.

I have just purchased a U310 Ideapad runnning windows 10 home, the first thing I did was take an image of the hard drive of the device in its state as just purchased ie without setting up the device or booting into the OS. I then proceeded to setup the device and all was well, I removed a lot of the bloatware but for some reason restored the saved image I had previously taken back onto the device obviously over writing the partitions which were there originally. Now OKR fails to find the original factory image, when I select the restore from initial backup option I get the message 'the program cannot restore the system partition because its structure is incorrect. You may have to recreate the partition to continue.' I am sure it is some easy fix to one of the partitions or something as I couldn't have done that much of a change, has anyone any ideas ?

Hello,I own a lenovo u310 notebook. Just recently harddrive broke, (made double check of that). And I cant be left without a laptop right now (linux booting from usb isnt an option. But I know theres ssd in this computer for caching purposes, can I anyhow use that ssd to install OS for a while? Problem is I cant access windows since hdd is broke (formated the harddrive in hopes of it to start working anyways), and booted linux or some partitioning tool like gparted doesnt detect the SSD. Still its there in bios boot options (ATA SSD1).So my question would be, Is there any way making SSD visible to some standalone formatting tool, and using the drive for installing os? edit: When trying to install debian the drive also doesnt appear.

Would the same verstical line appear on an external display?
Having this line after drivers update, maybe we can try to uninstall (try to notice if the line dissappears) and then update the video drivers from the support site first. If the line is gone set drivers update to never.
Check if resolution settings and or changing scaling properties helps /ratio aspect helps.

I've been having trouble with my Lenovo Ideapad U310 (running Windows 8.1) for quite some time now. Generally, it occurs once I try to reawaken the laptop after having had it on Sleep mode - the laptop freezes and then eventually the blue screen of death appears. I've been reading around the subject ever since it began, and I've tried enabling a hybrid sleep but no luck! I've tried updating all drivers but Lenovo is, quite franky, a bit rubbish at this. The error makes it a real pain to use my laptop at university etc, so I'm hoping someone can interpret the attached dump files for me!! I've only attached the last two but if you think more are needed, please let me know, as well as any other system details! ]

Cheers xo

Same problem here... any solutions?   What about gluing it?

Lenovo is investigating reports of U310 Touch devices experiencing hardware issues with hinges and the screen becoming separated from the lid or bezel.

A:Re: U310 Touch Hinge

I purchased a Lenovo U310 Touch last May and it has been working wonderfully until recently.  I've noticed in the last few weeks that every time I open or close the lid, the hinge makes a loud cracking noise and pops off at the ends. I can press the hinge cover back into place, but it just continues to pop off every time I open/close it. I contacted Lenovo Support about the issue, and even though my machine is still under warranty, they will not fix it without charging me because they have no proof I didn't break it myself (which I find absolutely ridiculous; I haven't dropped or damaged it in any way, and if you look at the computer you can clearly see it is otherwise in perfect condition.)That being said, has anyone else experienced this problem with the U310? Does anyone have any suggestions to fix it? I am concerned that it will just get worse and eventually affect my display.

I bought this device 1 month ago, and several days after - the pc won't awake from sleep, getting into the "new" blue screen saying "driver_power_state_failure".

After restart, a msg came saying the Intel Rapid Start Technology wasn't enables.

1. I downloaded the IRST from Lenovo site, but once trying to install, I got a msg saying the my pc does not have the minimum requirements to be installed.
2. So I googled, and came up with something that says that that I need to enable AHCI in my Bios.
3. I went to the BIOS, and indeed the AHCI was enabled.
4. In the BIOS, also the Intel Rapid Start Technology was enabled.
5. However, its status was "INVALID".

Please, I have no idea where to go next. It seems my computer hates me...

Hello, I purchased a U310 Touch about 15 months ago that is no longer under warranty. Every time I try and boot the machine I receive no response from the machine. The power light turns on, the fan spins, the HDD turns on but the screen never displays anything. Even when I close the clamshell the machines power button stays lit and won't shut off unless I kill the power by holding down the power button. My troubleshooting steps have been:Reset RAMUnplug battery from motherboardWait for battery to completely drainBoot with HDMI monitor to see if anything displays (nothing would, so LCD panel should be good) With all of these, I cant get the machine to fully function. It feels like the machine is in total sleep mode, I feel like it needs a new motherboard. With my experience with lenovo I feel like this will be the last machine I ever purchase from them, this is unacceptable for a laptop of this age.  Does anyone have any similar situations? If so did you purchase a new motherboard and was it good to go? I'm very comfortable with ripping machines apart since I used to work on a help desk. I would hate to spend $100 on a part and waste all that time if it wont fix the issue.  Any help is greatly appreciated.Thank you.

A:U310 Touch Won't Turn On

Hi overtheborder and welcome to the community,
What OS are you running?  Maybe two things you can try depending on the OS.
Remove the hard drive and see if it boots to the bios.
Try booting a usb flash drive with linux.

Hi there,
Hopefully this is not in a thread somewhere else, I've tried to find one (believe me, cause I'm desperate..).
So in the middle of me writing my master thesis, my computer just decided to die on me two days ago. Luckily, I haven't been that stupid so I've got backups of everything concerning my thesis, but as you can imagine it is not a dream scenario to suddenly not have a computer at all.
Anyways, to the issue:
So what happened is this.
1. In the middle of writing a blue screen comes up, saying that there has been a problem. A sad smiley face "" came up (I thought to myself that this can't be true. And then it said (translated from Swedish): "A problem has occured on the computer. It needs to be restarted." Something about information about the occurrence being collected.. "..afterwards a restart will take place automatically."
It then added: "If you want more information you can search for this issue online later: KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR
It then restarted after some 30 minutes.
2. It started as normal (allthough a little slow), but then when I logged in almost none of my programs started. Any folder cannot be opened more than 15-20 seconds before it freezes a little bit and then just discontinues "explorer"/the folder and I'm back on the startscreen. Also, WIFI cannot be found whatsoever. Not that I cannot find WIFI, but it seems as if the actual WIFI on the computer just does not work. Or more like it doesn't even exist.... Read more

A:Lenono u310 w. W7 crashing on me

Here's more info on the KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR:  http://www.carrona.org/bsodindx.html#0x0000007A
Particularly, have a look at the Usual Causes section near the top.
This is often a hardware problem - so start with these free hardware diagnostics:  http://www.carrona.org/hwdiag.html
I'd start with the hard drive tests - but that's just a guess on my part.
Then, Please run this report collecting tool so that we can provide a complete analysis:  http://omgdebugging.com/bsod-inspector/
When done a Notepad document will open with the name of the file and it's location. (By default it'll be a .zip file located on your Desktop)
Simply upload the .zip file with your next post and we'll move on from there.

Howe are you?I accidently deleted factory installed Windows program preinstalled on my computer.is there anyway you can send me a link to down load? it is Windows 7 and I can provide serial# if necessary.

A:Ideapad U310 factory reset

Hi kimuh72 ,
Welcome to the Community.
Keep your Serial number confidential.
Did you clean install windows reformatting the entire harddrive before or just an in place install?
Did you manage to create a recovery media before?
The factory image resides on a hidden partion on the harddrive and can only be restored on the depot facility.
No harm on trying if it is still working right .
Turning off your pc , then press the Novo key (page 28) ,
System recovery on the menu
You may order your Recovery media set by calling support  
Check your warranty coverage specially if the harddrive broke for repair . 
Else,  you can download windows 
OEM product key would be the challenge , you can try using tools to extract it if needed.
For the drivers needed , its all free for download. 
Hope this post helped you and gave you idea to proceed.
Just reply back and let us know how it goes.

Hi all,I've been having some sound issues with my Ideapad U310 for a while now, and any help would be appreciated. Initially, no sound came out of the speakers, but if I plugged heaphones into the audio jack I could still hear sound through the headphones. Unfortunately, now there is no sound from either the speakers or the headphones. To address this, I've tried disabling sound enhancements through playback devices. I've tried installing the latest drivers for Intel Display Audio and Conexant Smart Audio HD. I've also attempted deleting these drivers (both together, then one at a time) and then installing manually/letting Windows install them. Unfortunately the nearest factory reset goes back to a time when the sound was not working. None of this appears to work. I'm wondering it whether it could be a hardware issue, since the USB drive next to the audio jack does not work either and what with the headphones initially still working. I'm running Windows 10, 64 bit. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.

I have a Levovo Ideapad U310, PN 59351642, 13.3" Ultrabook. When the power button is pressed, I can hear the CPU fan was on but there was nothing on the screen. I verified that the disk is working. I can attach the disk to my external drive and it is working file. I suspect that the mother board is bad. But I need to confirm this before ordering a mother board replacement. There are other components such as the LCD screen or the CPU itself might be bad. When I turned on the power, I tried to enter the BIOS set up utility by pressing Fn-F2 but there was still nothing on the screen and there was no sounds or beeps. I have tried the "onekey rescue" but this also did not work. Are there any other tests that I can perform to be certain that the mother board is bad and all other components are still okay? Any helps / suggestions are greatly appreciated. Ken

A:Ideapad U310 Motherboard Problems

Same here. Mobo is faulty. Symptoms are- press power and caps lock flashes once- front battery light is on and funtions normally (flashing amber for charging, white for charged)- front power light is white, as normal- power on button is on, as normal- nothing on screen, no backlight, completely black My part number ends with a 7, meaning i5 CPU - so it's not a CPU specific issue but a common issue between models, meaning motherboard or something on the board like the GPU.

 My machine: Lenovo Ideapad U310  Model 4375  I would like to know if I could replace my 500 GB HDD with a Crucial MX500 500GB SATA 2.5-inch 7mm Internal SSD.I read that mine is SATA 3.0, but that one is SATA 6. Would that work? And could it handle that storage space amount? Thanks!

A:Lenovo U310 (not y520) i7 hdd upgrade.

Good day and welcome to the community.As I understand it, the SATA standard is backward-compatible. An SATA-6 storage device should work fine in an SATA-3 slot, albeit at the slower speed, as long as it physically fits.Regards.

I'm running Windows 8.1. I started having issues the day before yesterday when I downloaded Skype. It froze several times, task manager couldn't kill it, and I had to turn my laptop off to close the program. After doing that, I was able to use Skype and did so for a few hours with no other issues that night. Yesterday, while in the middle of watching a video on Chrome, the video suddenly froze and it popped up saying that Chrome wasn't responding, did I want to wait or close it. I selected close but it wouldn't close, just kept running the "Windows is looking for a solution to the problem" thing for several minutes so I had to end Chrome through the task manager. When I tried to reopen it, it wouldn't respond. I restarted and decided since I'd had no issues before installing Skype, I would uninstall it and see if that helped. I also uninstalled a few games I no longer used in case I was having space issues. I then had it download and install any Windows updates, restarted after that was done, and was able to use Chrome again. A few hours later (the computer had been asleep for at least two or three hours,) I was successfully browsing when I tried to view a news site and Chrome froze/stopped responding. I tried to select "close the program" again but got same result, it wouldn't close, kept saying "Windows is looking for a solution to the problem" so I used the task manager to close it again. Repeat the earlier issues, couldn't reopen Chrome, turned laptop off and back on... Read more
