Yoga 910 Bios 2JCN27WW fix for loud fan noise

Q: Yoga 910 Bios 2JCN27WW fix for loud fan noise

Apparently I found another version of the bios which 2JCN27WW. I think this is the original bios for lenovo yoga 910. I have installed 27W and it seems really quite than 28W, 34W an 35W. When the computer wakes up from sleep or when I turn it on the fans dont turn and run fast. See if it helps you. Also the laptop doesnt get hot as much and stays running cooler and much quieter and the fans dont get loud at all vs 28W. Please test this bios version like you did the rest as it would be helpful to know. After two days of usage, I can honestly say the computer laptop has never been quiter and ran so smooth. Everything runs much smoother due to the fans being off and the only browser I use id google chrome and the fans are still off. https://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles/2jcn27ww.exe

I tried this BIOS and it bricked my computer. I have tried  everything, pressing the power button for 45 seconds and then pressing it again to power on the pc, removing the battery and I also tried the novo button but nothing works. The only thing that happens when I power on the pc is that the backlight on the keyboard lights up for two seconds and then nothing. The power led stays on and so does the charging led when the charger is connected. I called Lenovo support and they told me to send them the computer for repair. It's only a month old. It's the 16Gb, 1 Tb glass lid model. This happened yesterday, 2017/03/24 The morning after this happened, 2017/03/25, I now have control over the keyboard backlight and if I put in a usb stick the little led on the usb stick flashes, I'm hopeful that it might indicate that the motherboard is not tried. Any help with this issue is greatly appreciated.

Hi! I purchased Yoga 900 (part number 90UE002VUS) - 16GB Memory with 512 GB SSD. I hear the fan running loud and continuously even after closing all the applications. Is this normal? I thought SSD's are supposed to be ultra quiet, but this unit has an i7 processor, so maybe it's the processor that's forcing the fan to stay on. However the only application that I've set to run in the background is Sophos Anti-Virus. But even with that app turned off, I hear the fan come on very frequently and stay on with a loud noise for extended periods of time.I wonder whether I have a defective unit and need to get it replaced. If others have experienced this problem and found a solution, I'd appreciate your advice. Thanks

Hi, I got a problem with my laptop. The fan is making loud noise everytime I open a new window, a new tab, any setting window and so.

Hi Nstant,  Most probably a program or App is running at the background cause fast spinning fan to cool down CPU temp.  To figure it out, right click in your taskbar and from the opened menu click on task manager.  -From top menu click on performance tab then click on resource monitor ==> from top menu click on CPU tab and look at to the Average CPU usage and see which App or Program is using a high percentage of your CPU capacity==> right click on it and end the process.  .Regards,  **If the issue has been resolved please, mark me as solution provided to help others find the solution easily and click the Kudos.**

I put my headphones in the jack today and heard a weird background noise. When I removed them, the computer speakers were making a loud buzzing noise as well.  The buzzing noise comes and goes and disappears if I mute the computer's volume.  I cannot hear any audio on my computer now (no music, videos, noise at start up/shut down, etc.). I have tried updating the sound drivers and restarting the computer several times, but to no avail.  I have also tried to get sound with and without external speakers attached, with and without headphones in, etc. and I can only occassionally get the loud buzzing noise which is coming directly from both of the speaker vents on the bottom of the computer.  Thoughts on a solution?

A:Is my fan broken? 0 rpm in BIOS and loud fan noise lately

If the fan is actually monitored (not all are or have the 3rd wire to do so) its possible the bearings have failed (recent noise) and its stopped.

Its the chassis fan, not quite as critical as the CPU fan but it would have been faster to open the case and look than post the question I would have thought?

This is not a question, but really a suggestion to all of you who are about to update your BIOS. Lenovo released a new BIOS version for Lenovo Yoga 720 15 inches (BIOS Update - 10 [64] - V.4MCN24WW. This update brought back fan noise and frequently operation like it was before the BIOS update (BIOS Update - 10 [64] - V.4CN23W).  So the 24th version of the update is running fans as loud as the 22nd version. No good. If you know how to fix this problem then please let me know. Please do not update your BIOS because it brings back loud fan noise. I am hoping the fan issue thing will be fixed. The reason I did not want to purchase Lenovo Yoga model because they have been notoriously known for fan noise. The problem that was fixed with the 23 version of the BIOS update seems to be back with the 24 version.

Hi everybody, I would like some help!

I recently bought a new fan to help with cooling as the summer approaches. My new fan replaces my old chassis fan but is plugged in slightly differently as it is plugged into the 3 pin mother board connector (the old one was plugged into the molex and is now positioned as an intake fan at the front).

My problem is that since I've installed the new fan my computer is actually louder than before, Everest tells me that the revs for the new fan are 5114 rpm as I type this so it's clearly working too hard. I think it's working too hard because my processor fan is only idling by comparison at 1705 rpm. Which temperature does the chassis fan use to control it's speed and why has my CPU fan suddenly become lazy since I installed the new fan? Is there anything I can do to make the CPU fan work harder and take some of the burden off of the chassis fan?

Many thanks for any help!

Hi,

I recently upgraded the ram in my pc from 1.5gb to 2.5gb as it seemed to be getting pretty slow. I was expecting a pretty big jump in performance but it doesn't seem to have happened.

The pc can sometimes be faster than it was and sometimes it really drags. There is also an intermittent loud noise which i believe is coming from the fan and when this happens the pc is slow.

I took out the fan and cleaned all the dust from it but this noise still starts every couple of minutes and the pc becomes slow.

Any ideas?
 

A:Loud Noise from PC. Don't think it is the HDD

Two things to consider...
The amount of memory doesn't have much to do with speed unless some process can specifically use that extra memory. You can to more things well, but not necessarily more rapidly.

You system will utilize all memory at the speed of the slowest module. If you have some memory that is value ram or other inexpensive ram, the timings could be significantly different than the best brands and models.

Your system only uses what memory it needs, not what you want it to use. As long as the RAM meets the requirements of the motherboard, it will not protest.

If you want some programs to run at optimum performance levels, all memory must be identical. It is wise to buy matched sets of RAM from the same manufacturer at the same time to get the ultimate performance. Top memory is already sold in matched sets in the same plastic wrap. Otherwise, you have to look at the timings and other information posted on the package or the label.

Well the problem is unquestionably the fan. The replacement process is shown on p. 73 of the Manual here: Manual Where do you live (country)?

What happened to me one is that the CPU fan's mounting came loose and was not stable. Check to see if everything looks secure on it.

In the start up screen there was the message "diskette drive 0 seek failure", I disabled the floppy drive, the message doesn't appear anymore, and its still sounds the same. The sound mostly comes from the Floppy Drive area. I'm really worried, anything I can do to solve this?

A:[SOLVED] Loud Noise from CPU

Is there a floppy disk in the drive? It sounds like the floppy drive is dead (or dying) which is not all that unusual. Open the case cover and disconnect the power cable from the back of the floppy drive. Test. If the noise persists then it could be a fan failing or some other problem. Try the above first and get back to us.

Hi pkmaster,
The fan could be running at a higher speed due to any Windows background services accessing the processor resources. However, I suggest you to run the hardware diagnostics to check if all the components are working properly and particularly on the Processor and the fan by following the steps provided in the following link:http://dell.to/OUGnqT

I am running Windows XP on a Dell computer that is about 3 years old. Lately, and more frequently, the computer will all of a sudden make noises like a car engine revving up. Sometimes it just lasts a few minutes and sometimes it just gets louder and louder and lasts a long time. I have DSL and thus my computer is always on. I have virus protection and nothing comes up on the scan. When this happens, I normally have nothing going on, except perhaps one Internet Explorer Window open.

Is this a sound of doom and gloom to come? What could be causing this? Should I be concerned?

Thanks,
 

A:Loud Revving Noise

#1. Isolate the cause.
- Open the case and look at the fans particularily. Many systems today can control the speed of the fan and as the system heats up the fans spin faster. Older fans may complain and you'll hear a noise not unlike airplanes flying overhead.

If it's a regular 80 cm or 120 cm fan then a replacement is quick and easy. If it's a chipset or CPU fan, then replacement will require first determining what you need and then where you can find it. Most computer specialists will carry a variety of fans and parts, but make sure to double check your requirements before purchasing. Make sure if you replace your CPU fan/cooler that it will FIT.

Good luck,

Hello, So this started happening when I was moving the laptop one day (when it was on) the fan suddenly got very loud and the whole laptop was vibrating, it sounded like the fan was touching something while it spins which made the vibrating and loud noise, it sounds exactly like this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QkCLubSukzI I fixed it by restarting the laptop (sleep works too, seems like whatever makes the fan stop) but now it randomly happens, the normal noise of the fan has changed and it sometimes gets that loud again as showed in the video and then I have to restart to fix it. I've tried to open the laptop but some screws were too hard and stuck lol so I gave up. and I've cleaned the vents from dust.

A:Loud whirring noise

Helllo Eknirb,

From looking at your top image from Task Manager, it looks like you had a spike in CPU usage there for a bit. That spike may have cause your built-in motherboard fan controllers to rev up the CPU fan to keep it cooler with the quick increase (spike) usage.

Monitor your CPU temps to make sure that they are not high or spiking on you as well to be safe. 45C as your showing in the last screenshot is ok. If they are high all the time, the CPU fan or heatsink may be loose, or you may need to clean and replace the thermal past on the CPU heatsink.

If the usage is spiking on you randomly, then you can look under the CPU bar in Resource Monitor to help see what is using so much of the CPU.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Could be caused by dust accumulating on the fan blades? Causing the fan to come out of whack.

I tried to use Skype, but it turned out that my microphone stopped working, my voice is not heard. Then I tried to record voice with sound forge and same here, it should be noted that I do not get just an empty track with zero sound, record just does not happen. It is different things. But most horrible thing I got now is a very loud noise which almost hurts your ears. Noise occurs if I'm trying record something, answer to the skype, and also I got some low clicking sound of very loud short sound each time I'm trying to on video or audio, or switch it with timeline.

I've updated all drivers in Device Manager:

Microphone (Realtek High Definition Audio)
Realtek Digital Output (Realtek High Definition Audio)
Speakers (Realtek High Definition Audio)
Stereo Mix (Realtek High Definition Audio)

and it says the best driver software for your device is already installed.

So I have no idea what to do. Can't get if it is system problem or something wrong with hardware.

Hi, when I bought my PC two years ago, it was silent, it barely made any noise. However, I later made a huge mistake. I opened the case to clean the inside of the computer with an air compressor, but while I was cleaning the fans I wasn't holding them so the air compressor made them spin faster than normal. Following that, every time I boot my PC now, it makes a loud noise and also the PC makes a lot of noise in general. A lot more than when I bought it, to a point where sleeping next to it when it is turned on is a hard thing to do. Now, I'm wondering if that mistake is the cause of the noise. When I look at the fans, they don't seem to be damaged at all. I have 3 fans: The case fan, the graphics card fan and the power supply fan. My PC is cleaned regularly so I know it's not dust or anything that's causing the problem.

Here's some interesting info: It only makes noise when it's booting after the computer has been turned off for more than 30 minutes. If it's less than that, it doesn't make the loud noise. I have no idea why. Also, about 3% of the time, the desktop doesn't get to fully load because the computer freezes. It's a problem that started at the same time the noise started. If it is indeed one or multiple fans that are broken, how can I know which one(s) is?

I made a video of when I'm booting the computer so you can hear and see what is happening.

You didn't tell us the brand and model of the computer.
Using an air compressor is very bad, because you risk the damage of static electricity that is generated in amazing amounts. Next time, us canned air designed for use in cleaning computers.
Replace the CPU fan, us buy a new CPU cleaning kit, and any fans that blow air to the outside, and replace the power supply with one of decent quality. Clean the dust of fan blades and computer walls with a soft rag soaked in denatured alcohol. Get some nylon or plastic ties to hold the cables together and away from any fans. Tie down SATA and EIDE cables so they cannot block air or rattle. Make sure all air flow passages are free and allow full movement of cooling air. All these will likely return your computer to normal. You could also buy "silent" cooling fans for very little money which would reduce your noise even more..

First guess would be that your system is not getting enough love from your power supply.

Go here: http://www.extreme.outervision.com/ and calculate how much your system needs, then open up your case and look at the sticker on your PSU to see how many watts it is putting out.

Hey, sorry if this is not in the right section since I could not find any other better section to post this in.

Okay, my computer recently started to sound really loud, so I turned it off before I went to sleep. The next morning I woke up to turn my computer on, but nothing would show on my monitor and the computer was still extremely loud, louder then it has ever been. I decided to play around with it and I replaced the monitor plug (not sure of the correct name) to a different opening in my computer. It solved the problem and my monitor started finally working, but still my computer was louder then ever. I ended up scanning my whole computer and defraging. The scan went fine same with the defrag. The noise was still the same. When I tried out a game, it was really choppy and I was only getting about 10 fps on average.

I would really appreciate some light on this problem. Thanks.

This is very fustrating. I have updated the driveres but it didn't improve. Is there a specific drive update which solves this?Some people suggest using a fan control software. I'm afraid this will damage or reduce the lifetime of some components. Can it affect the warranty? Please help me, thank you very much!

I as far as I can remember have never had this loud noose before, but lately for a month or so? Ish? I've been having a series of loud noises from my pc, so loud that I can hear it even when playing BF3 with a headset! And so violent at times I can feel the keyboard vibrating lightly, and if I touch the PC it is vibrating decently softly.

I may be wrong but it seems it started after BF3, and thought it might be the fan or my PC really struggling with the game, but it does it even when I'm not playing.

It's sometimes just a softer sound, then will accelerate to a "burr, burr, burr" then go full auto into "brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr" occasionally very loud.

So here's the REALLY scary part: while playing Skyrim a very weird thing happened: it stopped. The sound of the game looped into a "drrrrrrrrrr" and I had to hold down the off button. Nothing else did anything. I rebooted and tested it again...sure enough: 30 seconds in I had to do the same thing. I gave it one last chance and decided I would try to discern if it did anything else notable, but the third time it was fine. I left the game open a while to see if it'd do it again, but it didn't.

So I'm scared. WTH is wrong with my PC? BTW it is kinda low on disc space...if that matters. Also the disc options are gone when I click on documents under the c\ drive and stuff...then again I had installed virtual drives...I dunno

A:Very loud and scary noise from my PC.

It's a windows 7 64bit 3.2 ghz i5? Or quad core. GT230 graphics card. And I "it stopped" I meant my pc. Not the noise. The monitor just started going as if it were preparing for screen saver mode.

Once in a while, my XP loads up without sound.
Most often, I do have sound.
But, when it loads with sound I get a loud banging noise - sometimes one sometimes two, then everytjhing is OK.
Would I ever be able to get it loading without the banging noise(s)?
Much obliged!
 

A:Loud noise, once or twice at start-up.

Obviously, there is a problem. I have no idea what the "banging noise" could be. "Banging" would seem to indicate something is loose and bouncing around in the case.

I was just taking apart my desktop and cleaning it up/blowing off the dust using a pressurized air gun (not too pressurized), and now that I have the nuts and screws back on, I plugged it in and the loudest noise began to come from the cooling fan.

It sounds as if theres something hitting the fan as it turns, this only happens on start-up for about 5 seconds as the fan blows at full speed. I did a visual inspection and there was nothing close to the fan, all wires were tucked away. What should I do?

A:Loud noise coming from fan

It's possible that when you blew compressed air through the cooling fan, some grit/debris inadvertently got into the fan motor pinion. It should eventually work itself out, but if it's stubborn then try blowing more compressed air. You might also want to check if there's a lubrication port somewhere on it (some of these fans are completely maintenance free, but some can be lubricated).

Hey everyone. So recently, my computer made a scary grinding sound that was quite loud and after opening it up and inspecting it, it seemed to be coming from the hard drive. A few google searches suggested this was most likely the problem. As a side note, this only happened after having my computer turned off for two days and happened on boot-up.

I went out and bought a new hard drive and installed it, however when I turned my computer on (with my old drive still in it to clone) the sound was gone. Anyways, I cloned the drive and set my old drive as a new partition designated Z: to keep as extra storage since it seemed to be working alright. Then, today, (again, after having the computer off for a day) the noise began again and I got an error screen with the options "Run Windows Repair" and "Start Windows Normally" or something to that effect. I started windows normally, because since my old drive was empty this shouldn't have caused any issue. Windows started up as usual, but I tried loading chrome and it seemed to be loading quite slowly. Not wanting to further the issue I turned it off again and removed the old hard drive.

I turned it on once more, and to my dismay, the sound continued. It doesn't sound like it could be coming from anywhere but my hard drive, however I unplugged and removed my CD/DVD drive to rule that out, and the noise continued. The new hard drive is a different brand and size and this has me worried that it could be something ... Read more

Hi there, firstly iam not sure if this is in the correct section of the forum. But my pc is making a loud humming noise. I havent a clue wot it is. It has done it for some time now, usually i turn on my pc here the humming noise so i would leave the pc like that for a few minutes until it warms up, turn it off and then back on again and the loud humming would stop. But now it just will not go away.

Does anyone have any ideas what it might be?

Thanks
 

A:My pc is making a loud huming noise.

Take the side panel off, start it up and listen for what is making the humm. Could be a fan going bad or the computer dust needs cleaning out, etc...

I am currently experiencing a loud fan noise whenever I play any games. This fan sound worries me as my previous laptop which is lower spec, doesn't produce the sort of loud sound from the fan. I went through everywhere related to system cooling and thermal framework settings in the power settings but still cannot reduce the fan noise while playing games. I hope anyone would be kind of you to solve this problem that has been worrying me these days. Below are the specs of my laptop.

HP Pavilion 15 ab-071tx
Windows 8.1
Intel core i7 5th gen processor at 2.4Ghz
8GB RAM
GeForce 940M

A:Loud fan noise when playing games

the noise that your fan generates would mean it's working hard to cool your computer.. this is good..

unless your fan is making clicking or sounds/noises that give you the inclination that your fans are broken or somehow screeching or the ball bearings need oil or perhaps there is too much dust in the vents,

then your only option is to deal with the noise of a fan..

For some reason, Laptop manufactures these days are letting go of quality product design and pushing little tiny plastic houses with hot CPU and hard drives and Memory and big hot Video cards..

If you haven't read up on this go ahead and have a loo at Lenovo's and what they are dealing with! I also have a Lenovo laptop and the funniest story is that I literally have to have my fan blasting at full speed.. It's not really bothering me but the sound of air being pushed is there.. but it doesn't kill me.. but thats me..

If I don't run my fan at full speed, my little plastic piece of heat just turns off and doesn't perform adequately.. Your lucky you got HP which hopefully doesn't do what Lenovo does to their customers on $1000 laptops by the way! the injected major restrictions to the laptop which cause it to not be able to even use the hardware inside of it because it's too hot.. hence why my fan is running at constant full speed 24/7.. Lenovo by the way even put a restriction on the way the fan works and I can't use it the way I want to to cool my computer! So the funny story is I cut a wire th... Read more

My P70 has an odd fan behavior, where the fans run full-blast for a few seconds, every time the system needs to cool even barely.  After those few seconds of jet-engine noise, the fans go to their steady-state behavior which is a soft noise. Is Lenovo aware of this behavior on the P70? It is annoying to have in such a high-end machine, and distracting when this happens every few minutes.The fans should just move up to slow from idle, not move through a phase of super loud blasting...

A:P70 super loud and sudden fan noise

Anyone else see this odd behavior? Lenovo, any comment?
