IdeaPad v310-15ikb fan running (almost) constantly

Q: IdeaPad v310-15ikb fan running (almost) constantly

Hi everybody, I bought a new IdeaPad v310-15ikb, I have been using it for one week and I realized that fun is running all the time, although CPU usage is low (~5%) and its temperature is also ok (36°C, HWMonitor). The fun speed and noise that it does is not big but still audible, it starts quickly after switching on and never stops entirely. I installed the latest bios update yesterday, nothing changed so far. I would like to know if it is normal and I need to accept it (I don't want to return the laptop, I like it otherwise) or if there is a way how to solve it / control the fan speed. Thank everybody in advance.

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.)

Hi guys,I bought a new 510-15IKB (i5-7200U type). It came with DOS, I installed win10 and configured everything, installed drivers etc. My problem is the fan, it keeps working constantly in idle, even on battery, on battery saver mode, so it just totally neglects the energy management settings (passive cooling, etc.) and CPU temps (34 Celsius and the fan keeps working).The fan is working in its lowest state (maybe, never heard it be quieter), so the problem is not a loud fan, rather that the fan never turns off during idle. I'm an IT guy, I know how to make things work etc, but this just can't be solved by me.What I tried:- Restart etc.- Reinstall drivers from support page downloads- Install newest drivers from parts manufacturers (intel etc.)- Set different energy management settings- Updated UEFI to newest version- updated win10 totally- even tried it using an Ubuntu live session and it is the same And there is a strange buzzing sound on movement if it is perpendicular to the surface of the fan, it's really quiet, but happens on smaller movements too, and it even happened once while the laptop was completely still on the table. This part of my problem might be totally normal, so my bigger problem is with it not turning off.What could be done?

Hi. I bought a V310-15IKB (80T3). It was easy to upgrade the parts with my old Lenovo since all I had to do was remove the screws under the battery and the lid would come out. Now I want to connect my SSD to my new laptopn but I couldn't figure out how I can remove the back lid. I removed all the screws but I can't find a handle to grab. There are tutorials on Youtube for 15IKB, but on all of them, there is another hatch for HDD, but not on my model. I am adding pictures of my computer. I'd be glad if anyone can tell me how to remove the back lid.

A:How To Upgrade SSD On V310-15IKB (80T3

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
 
Are you removing the optical drive first if so equipped?  By removing it will allow easier removal of the base cover from the top half.  Page #32 of your model's Hardware Maintenance Manual will explain how to remove the drive.  Starting on page #35 explains the base cover removal.  Here is a link to that manual for your reference......
 
https://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc/pccbbs/mobiles_pdf/v310-14-15ikb_hmm_en.pdf
 
There is also a Lenovo Training Video for the V510.  Although it is a slightly different model, the technique for removing the base cover should be the same.  Here is a link to that video series....

Hi, I just got a new V310-15IKB notebook and I would like to use it with Windows 8.1. I installed the system but I cannot  find the Win8.1 drivers at the download page:http://pcsupport.lenovo.com/cz/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/lenovo-v-series-laptops/v310-15ikb/d... Suprisingly, Win7 drivers seem to be available, but there are no drivers for Win 8.1 listed. Where can I get the appropriate W8.1 drivers? So far, I have managed to get some of the things working (e.g. the wlan and camera) by intalling either the W7 or W10 drivers. However, the driver for the graphics chip seems to be troublesome. I tried installing the driver provided by Intel (https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/26836/Graphics-Intel-Graphics-Driver-for-Windows-15-45-?v=...) but it refuses to intall and claims that minimum requirements are not met. What should be done to get around this issue?

Hi! I installed a SSD in my laptop and replaced the ODD with a HDD/SSD caddy with a WD HDD. There were issues like the laptop couldn't recognize the 2nd drive. Then I installed the Intel RST driver and now the laptop can read/write the hdd but it just sometimes can recognize it. When it does it works fine but after reboot, it doesn't shown up in Windows. In BIOS I allways see the two drives. If I enter BIOS before start the Windows allways sees the HDD until I reboot it. The controller mode is AHCI.Any suggestions? Regards,Imre

Well, since no one had replied to my previous question, i will ask again.Firstly, how many time do i have to start a new topic to get noticed?My 1month old laptop freezes constantly, i don't know what is happening, checked everything related to the updates, drivers, errors, viruses, scans and that stuff, laptop doesn't have heating issues, app crashing, slowdowns... Did the lenovo slution center scans, it is all good. I heard from the other members that replacing motherboard wont solve the problem, so dont try that, i am asking you what else can i do? i cannot even browse the internet, play YT videos,I simply dont have time to waste, reinstalled win10, updtated to the latest bios and even that wont help, so i' am assuming that my device is faulty. How am i supposed to do my job, when i have unstable laptop? I am wondering will you replay this time, and please don't tell me to run lenovo solution center, or to update drivers, or to reinstall windows for the 4th time. I've had enough of it.Looking forward to your reply,Kind regards

Greetings, Two weeks ago, i bought Lenovo V310. Great laptop for the price, But, it freezes on its own from time to time. Laptop is brand new running windows 10. I have tested it with Lenovo Solution Center and it passes all the tests. But my main concern is why the laptop is unresponsive, i've tried pressing num and caps lock button to check if they would switch off but nothing happens. This is my second lenovo laptop and i have to say the previous one G580 worked better.  I bought this V310 for web development and those things should not happen. This problem occurs on Windows 10 and Linux Ubuntu. Do you have any tips how to fix this freezing issue, i cannot rely on the faulty laptop.Thanks,Kind regards!

I recently bought a Lenovo V310-15IKB about a month ago, shortly after installing Windows 7 or Windows 10 my laptop has started getting semi random freezes. When a freeze occurs the entire system locks up, the sound makes a very short interval constant loop, and I have to preform a full reboot. It seems to happen more frequently feels like it can happen at any time. Can any one help me ?

Hi Nawaid,1. Does your systems have other symptoms? Such as slowing down, application crashing, etc.?2. You may try to perform a memory scan to see if there is any issue on the RAM.

I bought new V310-15IKB Laptop and I've been using it for three days. Today I turned it on like always (the battery was fully charged the day before, so without the charger connected to it) and a windows update popped out. But at the same time at the screen there was some weird message (I made a photo) So I clicked Enter and it turned on. I saw that the battery is 97% and connected the charger, but it wasn't charging at all to my surprise (it's written 'connected, not charging'). I reset the laptop and problem is still the same. When I disconnect the charger the battery is running lower (from 97% to 95% and so on), when I connect it it's not charging. It's a huge problem for me, I need laptop to work, so I asked my friend to help, but he checked the saving energy thing in lenovo companion and it's turned off, we have no idea why this problem with battery exists. I need my laptop for work, if I can't get it fixed in a few days I have to go to the shop and return the laptop and buy something else instead. I really like it, don't want to do that, anyone can help me with my problem? And sorry but English is not my first language, I tried to translate everything the best I could.

Brand new Ideapad 310-15IKB (Intel Core i5-7200U, 8GB RAM, 512 GB SSD); two days old. *** When I enter Windows 10, the fan starts after a few seconds... and it NEVER stops again! *** It runs at low speed, no rattling or anything. Accelerates sometimes, as it should. But NEVER stops entirely, not even when ALL programs are closed down.  The pc is almost virgin. I only installed Chrome, and McAfee was already on. NO CPU usage (0-3%). NO disk usage. NO scan running. I updated Windows and the BIOS, and I even chose the Power Saving mode. Still the fan runs constantly - at low speed, but enough to get me irritated. Any help will be much appreciated. Otherwise the pc goes back! \

I bought a new Lenovo Ideapad 510s 14" recently. The fan constantly runs, even if the laptop is idle. A quick look at task manger shows that only 2% of the CPU and 31% of the memory is being used. The laptop is not heating up at all, yet the fan is still running. I have scanned for viruses and malware using Windows Defender and Malwarebytes, and got 0 results. I disabled Cortana and the P2P windows update system too. Anyone have any idea why this is happening?

I ordered this laptop a few months ago from Amazon and from the start it had some malfunctions like mouse glitches and speaker glitches while playing sound. I said ok I can live with that. Then progressively it started to get slower, then a few days ago the screen would suddenly turn black, so I would have to force shut down. And restarting has a 30% chance of success, if it doesn't freeze mid start-up. McAfee is newly installed and always scanning for viruses, but I can't do a full scan now without the laptop freezing and quiting. I don't know if it's a problem from windows 10 or the laptop. Maybe both. Can someone please help and advise what to do. Thank you.
