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.exeRead other answers
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.)
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. ThanksRead other answers
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?Read other answers
Please help me interpret this information i got from BIOS (attachment).
My fan has been sounding a bit too loud sometimes, and I suspect something is wrong. What does this screenshot tell me?
What should I do if there is something wrong??
Thanks for helping!
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?
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!
Try speedfan, that should work.
I recently started getting hearing a loud "buzzing" noise when I started my computer or it had to load certain larger programs. I opened up the computer to find which fan the noise was coming from and found no noise. The noise had stopped until just yesterday. I was wondering if anyone had some suggestions.

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.
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.
I have Realtek Microphone in Recording settings of sound and Realtek Digital Output in Playback.
I did not make any updates for my Windows 10 64-bit for last few weeks or changes in settings, and this problem stats when I start my computer today.
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.
I was using my PC and all of the sudden it started making a loud almost rattling sound. I shut it off, waited a little and restarted it. It went away for a few minutes and then came back. I opened up the case to see if I could find where the noise was coming from and it seemed to be coming from one of the fans. I unplugged the power to that fan and now it is quiet again.
Do fans go bad? Is there a fix for this or do I just need to get a new fan?

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?
#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.
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
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)?
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.
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.

(My laptop is not covered in warranty)
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)? I ask because I am not familiar with what service technicians charge for this kind of work in every country. In the US I can tell you the part would be maybe $15-20US and the labor would be $80-150. If you have some skills at following a manual and maybe a video it is something you can do yourself. http://www.ebay.in/itm/New-CPU-Cooling-Fan-for-HP-Pavilion-M6-M6T-M6-1000-m6-1002xx-m6-1035dx-m6-/11...

I just got my new XPS 2710 a week ago. All things working perfectly (Windows 8 not too exciting) except the fan noise. I have no application consuming CPU, memory is low and no network activity still I hear the fan running a bit higher than normal.
Does anyone has seen this or has recommendation before I call support and debug.
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
Please let me know if you need further assistance.

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,

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

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.Read other answers

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.

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.
My computer is constantly making a loud static/rushing/electronic interference noise, all the time apart from when I play a CD using the Windows CD player - but if I try and play a CD using Windows Media Player I still get the noise, and the CD volume is so quiet you cannot hear it over the interference!
Any suggestions? I have a USB broadband modem and the problem started shortly after I installed this. I only have integral sound that came with the motherboard, I don't have a soundcard.
Any help welcome!

Ok i have finished my upgrades on my system(well a whole new system really)
specs are as follows
MOBO=ASROCK EXTREME 3
GPU=GEFORCE 670 2GB
PSU=CORSIAR 80 500W
My problem is this, i used to have a geforce 750 ti card, but i upgraded to an older card which runs faster and better for gaming the GTX 670, the card is twice the size and required two connections from my psu, this is fine my PSU can support it
But when playing games it spins up really fast and makes a bit of noise compared to when my system is idle or running less intense programs, is there anyway i can stop this from happening, i belive it is something to do with the airflow in my case but im not too sure
Could be caused by dust accumulating on the fan blades? Causing the fan to come out of whack.
You stated that this is a older card have you tried it in a different system does it do the same?
Are you sure that the fan is not hitting any cables?
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..

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.

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?
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).Read other 6 answers
This is really troubling to me. I've had this computer for only 2 months and just yesterday, it started to suddenly make loud noises. I was trying to install VOBSUB yesterday and it installed... but the screen was frozen. I couldn't exit out of the window. SO I used task manager and got myself out of it then tried again - but happened again of course. Then all of a sudden there was this deep, loud motorlike noise coming from my computer. My old computer's fans were always loud whenever it was on but this was different.
I turned it on this morning and got the usual loud fan sound... then that deep low noise for maybe 2 minute. I'm really scared about this. What should I do?
First, a word of caution...
Any work that you or someone else does to the system may void your warranty- unless you bought it used. You should check with the manufacturer to see what is covered and for how long. Second, we'll need more information about the computer. Edited for spelling
Hi, I have a friend who's compaq presario V3000 laptop suddenly started to make a loud buzzing noise from the fan area.
It appears that if the sound starts before Windows loads, it will persist on and off until the next restart. But sometimes it doesn't start at all before Windows loads, and during those times that sound is not heard at all until the next restart.
From reading about similar problems on the Macbook, I tried installing the RMClock program as advised but it didn't work.
Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks.
Ok current problem is that my labtop of 3 years I think is going bad. Its making a noise it never did when I first purchased it. Startup takes like 5 minutes and you cant do anything other than wait for everything to load. Also today i got a black screen after booting up says unable to verify security options after typing in my username and pass.
I'm another member like yourself. I've had similar problems I'd run disc cleanup then defrag the copmputer, then scan it with some anti virus. that should eliminate most problems.
There is also the chkdsk program in windows that will scan you HD for problems. If you open computer and right click on the HD and choose properties it will open a window with tabs. The general tab has disc cleanup and tools has the other three tools you can use. Sometimes you have to restart to run chkdsk after choosing to schedule it restart and it should run. Make sure to choose the scan for and attempt recovery option.

With the HDD I could feel all the computer vibrating in the palm of my hand!!!! No there's a quiet no vibration laptop!
And, believe it or not, one of the reasons to go the ssd way (well, not the main reason) was precisely the noise and vibration of the 7200 rpm internal hdd.

I have just purchased my OMEN by HP Laptop PC - 17-w033 from Best Buy. One of the reasons I bought it was the reviews I read about the low fan noise. Well every single game I have tried the FAN Starts spinning loudly. I have changed the CoolSense settings with no change. Regular use of the laptop and it is as quiet as a mouse. Therefore is it the GPU that is installed or something else? Thanks in advance for any and all help.Read other answers
For some reason, my computer frequently produces a loud fan noise when I am using it. For the majority of the time, it is silent. However, there are often times when I don't even have many webpages open but it grows louder. There are two levels of loud (the second level is so loud that it can draw attention from people sitting next to me).
This is only a 2 month old laptop, so I am unsure why it gets loud. Also, I have 12gb RAM, which adds to my confusion.
Any suggestions or reasoning? Thanks!

I bought XFX Geforce 8800 GT Alpha Dog Editionhttp://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150274.A great piece of hardware!But...and there always seems to be a but...the fan is way too loud...and it appears that there is no way to adjust the fan settings since my version of this VGA has them "stuck" at 100 % by default,so no application designed to that end would work( I tried RivaTuner).Ordering code of my VGA is PV-T88P-YHD4 V 1.0 WO1/08.So ,I am thinking about replacing the fan with Arctic Cooling Accelero S1 rev.2 http://www.arctic-cooling.co.uk/vga2.php?idx=147 Is this the best solution or are there any other ways of dealing with a loud,jet engine loud fan?..of course there's always water-cooling but I am looking for a cheaper,easier solution here..
im afraid the only way youll be able to quieten it down is with another heatsink.
however, you may want to try nTune, from nvidia:
and check the conditions of your warranty, removing the heatsink may void it.
Hey thank you for reading, Laptop:HP ENVY 17t-k000 CTO Notebook PC (ENERGY STAR) This doesn't happen every time the computer starts up. It's a loud fan-like noise - seems to be coming from the back left corner (by the power button). Want to find out what part is malfunctioning, any help would be appreciated. Youtube below shows it happening. https://youtu.be/4vvSe8jhhdIRead other answers
