Yoga 260 overheats and shuts down, but fan speed never gets up to 100%

Q: Yoga 260 overheats and shuts down, but fan speed never gets up to 100%

My Yoga 260 sometimes overheats and shuts down when I'm doing video work. But the fan speed never speeds up to 100% before it shuts down. Is there any utility to increase the Yoga's fan speed?

Hi,

My Acer Aspire Laptop Home Premium (Vista) is becoming very hot and then shuts
itself down.
This happening more more frequently now - as in twice in 30 minutes, so I have left it off..

I always prop it up to get plenty of air underneath, but it is happening more often. Would it just be dust on the fan - or could it be I need a new cord?
Thanks for any help.

hello,

recently i have been having trouble with my laptop (toshiba satellite, running windows xp, about a year old). it seems to randomly shut off at times, often causing me to lose whatever i am working on. often it happens when i am in the middle of a game or in the loading of a game, but even happens when i load different applications or watch websites with flash/music playing. the fans usually get pretty loud, and then the laptop shuts off all together. the laptop is just about always plugged in, not running from battery. if anyone knows any way i can fix this without sending it into the manufacturer i would be most greatful.

thank you
 

A:laptop shuts off/overheats

There is a tendency for the fans to get clogged with dust, and when that happens they will shut down on over-temperature.

Clearing them can require disassembly of the laptop, which is not a job for the inexperienced or faint-hearted. It's easy to damage something.

If it's not a warranty issue, then any experienced computer tech should be able to assist, not just the manufacturer.

ok.. i'm guessing that the psu is what my power cord plugs to...

My psu heats up significantly... so when i have my comp on for longer than 30 mins it heats up so much that my comp turns off by itself, and a red led on my motherboard lights up.....

the more apps I run, the faster my comp overheats. HELP!!!

also, when I turn my comp off, my optical mouse sometimes stays lit... or my keyboard's num lock stays on. it's really weird.
just a side note, my comp doesn't overheat in the winter for obvious reasons =P the casing of my comp is also removed to keep it cooler... but that's not good enough now.

Hi guys.

I have a Dell xps 18 which has developed a problem recently. With or without overloading the cpu temperature starts rising randomly and the machine shuts down at around 57-62 degree. Sometimes it is fine and sometimes it keeps doing this back to back. My computer has replacement i3 motherboard. The original stopped charging the battery (plugged in , not charging message) so I bought a replacement motherboard about 8 months ago. It has the proper cpu paste and everything was working fine until just recently. It even shuts down when it is in BIOS. Just wondering is the 60 degree is a dangerous temperature which is force shutting the motherboard? The idle temp is around 30-40 degree then it suddenly starts going up all the way to 60 and then dies. It does it mostly when is overload (no gaming, just a few software opened ) but then again it goes up sometime when it is just sitting there with nothing running in background. Do I need to go on eBay again a fan buy my second replacement motherboard now lol?! Any suggestion?

I love my XPS 18 and it has served me well but having these serious problem has started really putting me off it.

Many thanks.

Having troubles with my laptop's cooling system. I noticed the fan completely stops working after a few minutes of running the system and then rhythmically tries to power up on its own after every 3-5 seconds yet it never really comes on, not until I restart the system entirely. This causes the system to perform an automatic shutdown due to overheating. I have some level of expertise with regards to disassembling the system and I have cleared out the possibility of dust causing the problem. Although I am unsure whether the cause is hardware or software related because the fan seems to work fine until it completely goes off on its own.My System specs are as follows:HP 630 NotebookWindows 7 32-bitIntel Core i3(If it helps, the system is about 4 years old)

Dudes,
My laptop can stay on all day long without overheating, regardless of what application I am using.

However, as soon as I start using Microsoft Word, the fan spins at cut-throat speed, the laptop overheats and switches off within 5-10 minutes.

Related info: A month ago, my in-built microphone stopped working, and about a week later, my CD/DVD stopped recognising all CDs and DVDs, although I hear it spinning.
I had not installed anything new or downloaded anything at any point.

Merci guys!

Well thats extremely odd. I gues you could going to the http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/default.aspx website and download all the latest updates. Maybe its been addressed. Also look in the FAQ or BIOS updates for your laptop; again maybe its been addressed by the company.

On the otherhand with all the problems you are having it might be worth calling the laptop manufacturer or even having them take a look at it.

So, here's my problem. I've been browsing just as I always have, and nothing has changed in my setup whatsoever. However, just yesterday I was watching videos and suddenly my graphics card spiked to 85 degrees Celsius. I've had issues with random spikes in the past, but never this severe; since this moment the spikes have been constant and I cannot cool it below 42 degrees Celsius. 42 is quite low, I know, but I tend to use this computer to play graphics-intensive video games and I have to monitor my temperature with GPU Tweak for the entirety of every gaming session I have. Now, I am unable to even play them because it goes up too quickly and crashes my computer. I want to know if it's just heat that's a problem, or if there's something else, and how I can fix this issue. I don't want to risk buying a new GPU until I know that it's the sole culprit. I have three fans in the case and one ordinary house fan that I set up next to it to help cool it down. This setup has been workable for so long, why is it not working now? Do I need more fans or newer fans? I already cleaned the whole thing out so I don't think dust is an issue.

Additional information:

I recently did a system restore because this had not happened until a recent Windows update.

Hi and welcome to TSG.

We really need a lot more information about your system to make an informed response. Not sure what your link is and I can't open it on my work PC anyway.

Please provide the following:

- Exact make and model of the machine if it is a 'big brand' name like a HP, Dell etc?
- If it is a self / custom build, what is the make and model of the motherboard, CPU, RAM, HDD, Power Supply etc. The more info the better?
- What version of Windows are you using? Is it fully patched and up to date?
- Where are the fans located in the system and is each one blow into or out of the case?

I have a Dell Vostro 1510 running Vista Home Premium. I started noticing that when playing games sometimes performance would go down considerably which coincided with the laptop being considerably hotter to the touch. I installed speedfan to check if this was true and as it turns out the gpu can reach up to 95C without the fan going full speed (I can hear it run but not full speed). The fan might reach full speed but not necessarily when the temperature is at is highest which means that the laptop usually overheats when playing videogames. I'm not sure if this has happened since I purchased the laptop or after upgrading BIOS. I currently have the latest BIOS from Dell (A15), and the latest reference drivers from Nvidia for the videocard which is a geforce 8400M. Can it be that the overheating is due to using the reference drivers and not the manufacturers? I used the reference drivers because Dell hasn't updated videocard drivers for almost a year.
 

A:Laptop overheats and fan doesn't reach full speed

What games are you trying to play on that computer? Hopefully they are not that demanding because the Vostro isn't great for newer games. Also make sure that you are not using it on a soft surface (bed, rug, blanket, etc).

The drivers for your video card should not interfere with your fans since it is all integrated into the same motherboard.

This has happened so far:- Bought this Notebook 9th of July.- After a couple of months (5th of Nov) the fans were really loud and constantly spinning (but the laptop was cool at least). I couldn't even have it running during lectures because the fan had this high pitch noise (like it it was hitting the actual plastic case).- Since the warranty was still valid I sent it in for repair around the end of November.- I got it back the 7th of Dec and started the laptop which was quiet as a mouse. I couldn't even hear the fan spinning. This made me a bit worried though that they had disabled the fan.- So I did some testing and downloaded HWMonitor to check the GPU temperatures while I ran some intensive graphics demos. As the temperature went up well over 80 C up to 90 C, the fan NEVER started spinning. It was still as quiet as when idle. I stopped the demos once it hit 91 C to not break anything.- After the laptop ran the demos I only had Chrome open and casually browsed it stayed at a constant 80 C, which is too hot to touch for longer periods of time. The temperature never dropped below 70 C when idle, which is expected since I can't even hear the fan spinning at all.- I have checked BIOS and "Quiet Mode" isn't even enabled so my only conclusion is that Lenovo must have disabled my fan just to stop the sound.In short, my laptop fan was too loud so I sent it in for reparation and got it back but now it overheats and there is no way to enable the fan again.

Hi, I have a Lenovo Yoga 900 (Intel Core i7-6560U 3.2 GHz, 8 GB RAM, 256 GB SSD, Windows 10) and have been experiencing the following issue since I purchased it: I put the laptop in sleep mode and into my laptop bag. The laptop will wake up by itself later despite the lid is closed. It then stays on as it's inside the laptop bag it gets very hot and drains the battery. Since this has happened closer to 10 times already I'm worried if the battery life is already damaged due to heating. Normally when I close the lid the laptop goes onto sleep mode.  I have already taken many measures to try and stop it from waking up from this article (http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/stop-windows-computer-randomly-waking/). I have set the power setting so that it should always go on sleep mode when the lid is closed. I don't understand how it goes on even when the lid is closed.  What could be the problem?

My 20 yr. old nephew at Wichita State sent me this email this morning asking for my help. He describes the problem below! I told him to try a system restore first but didn't think the battery needed replacing yet. The overheating concerns me as well as the random shutdowns. I told him I would get back to him before the weekend was over. Thanks in advance everyone!

I don't know if you know anything about this or not or if you can help me but I'm having some trouble with my computer.

My computer keeps just randomly shutting off when I don't even do anything. I'll be watching a video online or something and then it just goes black and shuts off.

I thought maybe it might have something to do with my battery going bad or something. My computer is less than two years old so I wouldn't think anything would be going bad yet.

Also I've noticed when it does shut down if I feel the back of my computer it feels hot so I don't know if its overheating and not getting proper ventilation because if I turn it back on and keep it elevated off the ground where it has room to ventilate then it seems to work fine. It started doing this probably about a month ago and it would do it maybe once every couple of weeks but now sometimes it does it 5 or 6 times a day.

I don't know why all of a sudden it would start overheating though because it hasn't done it the past year and a half that I've had it. I tried taking my computer to Best Buy ... Read more

Good day,

Sorry for the vague title, i'll be as precise as I can describing my problems.

First of all, whenever I start my computer, more often than not, the fans go full speed, I can use my computer normally until it heavily slows down, the sound when playing music is messed up, and there it happens, the shut down. This usually happens after 10 to 15 minutes after startup.

But here's the thing. When I start it up again after that, it works fine, fans are quiet, everything runs as smoothly as it can. Not a single issue. So, that's the first problem.

Now, the other issue I encounter, is that one of my fans, speeds up, and down, and up, and down, whenever I launch Steam. Not a game, just Steam. And it'll do that, until I close it. It happened before for one specific game, but I thought it was, well, an issue with that game only. Now it does it whenever I launch Steam.

Any ideas about the why and how to fix it ? Thanks for time you took reading.

This happened for the first time yesterday. I restarted the PC and everything was seemingly fine. This morning, I booted up my PC, and the fan started going full-speed and became very loud, even before it was fully booted up.

On a hunch, I opened up the PC to check for dust clogging any vents, but I don't see any dust at all, other than on the outside of a little bit on the outside of the vents (which I did wipe off). It seems to be the CPU Fan.
I've been running the PC now with the cover off, and it has not shut down yet, though the fan keeps going at full speed (which is unusual). At least I was able to log in here and post this this time, before everything shuts down. The PC is running a bit slow (slow enough that it's a bit clumsy trying to type in this entry).

Thanks in advance.

BTW, I'm a bit vision-impaired, and have a little hand tremor, so my days of too much working on the inside of PCs is over with.

Hi, 2+ year old Yoga 900 is perfect, except for a recent problem that I just started experiencing a few months ago. Randomly, during the start-up, it will just shut down. This goes on for several hours where when I push the power button, the screen and keyboard backlight will turn on, the black screen with the white Lenovo text is displayed for serveral seconds, then the screen suddenly turns black and the computer turns off. I can keep turning it on and it will keep doing the same thing over and over. I have to let it sit for several hours before I come back to the computer and it "fixes itself". I can't make any corrolation to why or when this problem starts happening, or when it "fixes itself" (as in, it doesn't matter if it's plugged in or or not, or what the charge level is, etc.). I already had my battery replaced once, and I have no idea what might cause this. The computer has never been dropped, and I don't think its a power supply/battery connection internal issue becasue I can leave the computer sitting on my desk and it will start having this problem and "fix itself" without me moving the computer.

I've always used sleep mode at night and quite frankly most of the time instead of shutting down my yoga. I know thats not good after reading some here but wanted to share history in case that has something to do with problem.Typically at night or when leaving office or just going to be off computer for a while I'll close the lid (which is set for sleep mode) and when I return I open it up, enter my password and I'm right where i left off. I have multiple spreadsheets or power points open so it's easier than shutting those down every time or even at night. But since yesterday, when I open it back up, it has shut down and has to start up from "off" vs sleep. All things open have to be recovered (xls, docs, ppt, etc) and chrome says it has shut down unexpectedly and asks if I want to restore tabs, etc.What is causing this change and how can I troubleshoot it and fix it?Help much appreciated.

Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
Can you try checking under
 

Control Panel / Hardware and sound / Power Option
Click on change plan settings on your selected Power Plan
Click on change advanced settings

Now on this window look for Sleep and open it up.
Look for "Allow hybrid sleep"
Make sure that it is on and save changes
 
Check and let me know if that works.

Hello, My yoga 530 is set to hibernate when battery is 5%. The settings are in "advance setting for energy savings"; then you can choose for some particular battery states to start a function.For the state "battery about to die (5%)" (i'm translating from italian, don't know if it's the same) i can choose only from 3 options: 1) shut down 2) hibernate 3) sleep. The problem is that when my PC is at 5% i just want it keep on, i don't want it to shut down or even sleep or hiberante. How can i do that?thanks in advance

Hi, I got the following problem: My lenovo yoga 11s (Machine Type Model: 80AB59397858 P/N 59397858) works perfectly fine on battery but when I plug in the cable it usually shuts down within 20-30 minutes, sometimes within 5 minutes (not immideately)I tried to move the cable back and forth -- no, it is not the case, the contact is fine.I also changed thermo glue on the CPUDifferent charger cable didn't helpPlaying around with power settings and software didn't help eitherSystem log is empty -- it shuts down through hardware.Thermal sensors show 60-70C on CPU.Interesting: If I set performance to "balanced", it sometimes hangs with corrupted image on screen -- clearly GPU problem. Since there is no separate graphics adapter, I am thinking about overheating, but thermometer does not agree  Thank you for any participation

Hi, I have an Ideapad Yoga 11s for about 4 years and it shuts down whenever I have it plugged IN...yes PLUGGED IN. So when my laptop runs low on battery, I plug it in and within 10 seconds, it shuts off by itself. It has happened to my previous Lenovo so I guess the problem was never solved. Any suggestions? It only started happening within the last 5 months or so.

This Yoga 520 keeps shutting down automatically every 4 or 5 minutes whilst on battery power. It's fine when plugged in. How can I fix it?

I'll try and explain this one best i can. User came to me with their Yoga 15 with an issue where it randomly shuts down on battery power, as in completely switches off.  It sometimes displays a message to say the battery cannot be detected, other times just shuts down. The conclusion I've found is that when the bottom panel is off the machine the battery is completely detected in Windows, and the Lenovo Settings app. It runs fine, never cuts off even with lots of IE instances open.As soon as I put the bottom panel back on the battery appears to be disconnected in Windows, and it also shows it not charging. Intermittently it also states the battery power is low or not detected when booting up. Found that there's a battery / system reset button on the underside that may be the cause of the issue. Pressing this button with the underside of the Laptop off resets the machine entirely, I believe it's the battery reset button incase the machine ever gets stuck at any point (as by rights it's a non-removable battery and there's a small pin hole on the case over this button). Works flawlessly without the bottom case in place, as soon as I re-connect it when the unit is on Battery power I loose the battery status in the Lenovo Settings app. The machine will then randomly shut down. Any thoughts on this one, it's the strangest thing. Many thanks all.

A:Lenovo Yoga 15 - shuts down on battery

When you put the panel back, is it touching/blocking any wires?
Have you tried to do a factory reset? If everything works fine then, try updating drivers one by one to see if it comes back.

Hallo, my name is yuval.So here is my problem, about 5-month ago I bought a new lap top of ?Lenovo yoga 720 15? 80x7? from ?best buy USA? and took it back to my country outside of the continent.When I first started to use it, it has an immediate major problem- ?no charging just plugged? so whenever I unplugged it, it would show me that I have no battery and shuts down without any notice.After struggling with the problem and trying to fixed it by myself, I gave up and sent it to Lenovo USA (I am not from the states so it costed me a 100 $ for the shipment).They fixed it and replace the batteryAbout a month ago I got the laptop back from Lenovo ? fixed and everything worked fine until a week ago when the laptop began to spontaneously shuts when unplugged but this time only when decreasing to 20-50 % battery.The charging works and when the laptop is plugged it won?t shut down at all.I tested the hardware with some of Lenovo?s software and everything looks fine I tried to use a temperature app and everything looks fine as well.I don?t know if it is software related or HW, really hope it is the first one, I saw that maybe it related to ?ME region? which I don?t know what it  is.I will be? so! Much grateful if some can help me with this problem. I?m a fast learner and can follow instructions easily      Sorry Im really desperate and run out money for another shipment to the Lenovo USA.

Thank you for following this thread. I have recently recieved a refurbished X1 Yoga which has run extremely well until three days ago. When I first recieved the laptop I noticed only that the battery charged light and the screen notification were not aligned. The light next to the charger would indicate it was charged long before the screen would agree. This wasn't that big of a deal, but it may have led to my next issue. Three days ago the touchscreen and mouse started to malfunction. On the right side of the screen there was the mouse and three circles frozen, but I could still use the mouse through intuition and some guesswork. The visible point of the mouse would flicker back and fourth between where it actually was and the right side of the screen. Later that evening I closed the laptop and it died. I tried to charge the laptop, but no matter how long it was charged or how long I held the power button nothing happened. Essentially, it became a very expensive brick. Yesterday I charged the laptop again just out of desperation and it came to life. It made a sound like a dial-up and just turned on as if nothing happened. Everything seemed to be all right until it crashed again, and now is currently dead. Any suggestions? The laptop is still under warranty since I got it about three weeks ago, I just can't turn it on to use Lenovo Support.

Seeing as your machine appears to have suffered hardware failure, I would phone for support. If the International Warranty Tool on support.lenovo.com is correct, you should call 1-800-426-7378 in the United States.

Hi there, I'm experimenting some troubles when I plug an Ethernet adapter (TECKNET HU043-V3) on the "always on" USB port, the laptop shuts down inmediatly (seems like a power supply issue). Is anybody getting this kind of issues? If I plug the same adapter into the other usb port, it works fine. I tried also to plug the same adapter in other computers and nothing happened. Thanks in advance!!

Recently my Lenovo Yoga 720 15-IKB has started shutting down after a few minutes when on battery. It's fine when I use it plugged in. But once I unplug it and it's using battery (even when fully charged), it will consistently turn off after a few minutes. Nothing has changed that I know of since this started happening. It just seemed to start doing it one day. It hasn't been dropped or anything, it hasn't even left the house. I read around a bit and saw the recommendation to update the BIOS. So I've attempted to update the BIOS via the official Lenovo support page but run into an issue and it can't complete. It has me download 4mcn33ww.exe and kicks off Insyde H20FFT (Flash Firmware Tool). The process appears to run as expected until it turns off the laptop to restart and once it boots back up with the screen black, a red message states "Warning: No Battery Connected, This process requires AC power and a charged battery to avoid accidental power-off during an update". I attached a photo of what I see. I, of course, have the laptop plugged in during this process so I'm not sure why it says that. And prior to starting the BIOS update, Windows states the laptop is, in fact, charging/plugged in.  At this point I'm stuck. The only potential fix I've found online is to update the BIOS, but I can't update the BIOS due to the AC power error it seems. Any ideas? Thanks!

When shutting down the laptop after a few hours of use, the OS (win10 x64) will shutdown normally, but the red led on the thinkpad logo will remain on. (same whether im on battery, on plugged in). I noticed this issue after finding out my fully charged battery was completely empty when I tried turning it on. However, when I only use the laptop for at most an hour or less and shut down, It will be fine and everything will be powered off. This problem only occurs during long hours of use and then I would have to hold the power button to completely shutdown. What I have tried so far:Disabling Hibernate, SleepUpdated Bios to GQET47WW (1.27) 9/23/2015Disabled Fast Startup* *What I have noticed after disabling fast startup was that before, it would usually blink red until the battery is completely discharged. After disabling fast startup, the problem still occurs but instead the LED is a solid RED until the battery is discharged. Are there any other options I can use to fix this?
