Yoga 3 14 80jh - Fan Always Running

Q: Yoga 3 14 80jh - Fan Always Running

I have just started using a the above device with Windows 8.1 installed. I'd be really interested to know if there is a way to stop the fan running about 90% of the time. I've read the thread about the high pitched noise, which I don't have.I've updated all drivers and the bios.I've run the fan cleaner and taken the back off to check all is well internally.I've checked in the Tasm Manager to see if anything is being a processor hog but nothing sticks out. Nothing appears to stop the fan running. That said, the machine is very responsive, so it's not all bad! Do I just get myself a cooling pad and deal with it? Or is there anything else I can do/try?

I'm looking to buy an SSD to replace the dying SSD storage drive on my Yoga 3, Model 80JH. There's not much information out there on what specs I should be looking for to ensure it's compatible.

Hi we have a Yoga 3 Notebook 80JH and we are having issues starting it. If left alone for a day or so it may boot up, but due to a failed installation of Windows 10, I would like to restore to factory defaults / image. If I restart or shutdown the notebook, it will NOT power up the screen.  The keyboard backlight *may* light up but nothing appears on the screen. Plugging in an HDMI monitor, the Lenovo windows loading screen shows (spinning circles) but then even that then shows black. This appears to be a common failing with these notebooks. I have googled the issue, and followed various 'tricks' like holding power down for 20 seconds whilst the power cable is out, all to no avail.   What appears to be missing is an explanation as to what is going on. Holding the 'Novo' button down makes the notebook act as if the power button had been pushed, again only showing the lenovo loading screen for a bit on the extra HDMI monitor before showing no signal. Any ideas?

Hi guys, I am opening this post because I think that it could be useful to everyone who would like to solve several issues related to this laptop. I think that it is a really good notebook but it needs a lot of work to have it working in a proper way.So first of all I am posting here a link of a doc in which I am monitoring several issues I encountered and how I solved them.

So, first step was adding the 2nd fan. Then I started to investigate if we can effectively control the fans and the answer is NO, but we can play a bit to force them to have a behavior. My target was only one: REDUCE the FANS NOISE and consequently their speed, because I think that this laptop is almost able to work in fanless mode (and believe me I stress it a lot, especially in terms of multitasking). Before showing my personal code to be used in NBFC I am giving you some information I retrieved by the Read&Write software (32bit version works well).?When Fans starts HEX values show up at position 6 and 254. These are the 2 actual speed values of the fans.?The target values (so where you have to write the desired fans speed) are in position 86 and 176. I am not totally sure if they are the effective position to write but they seem the only position which considerably vary according to the change of... Read more

Sound was working when I went to bed, in the morning it wasn't.  Popup on speaker icon in system tray says "no audio output device is installed." Updated all drivers using iObit Driver scanner.  When that didn't find an audio adapter I rand the driver scanner on the Lenovo support site and it said no new drivers were needed.  Ran recovery from the startup and chose option to completely wipe the hard drive, files, progrmas etc. and install Windows 10 to factory settings - still no sound adapter. Saw a similar forum post with a link to a Reatek driver so installed it - no change.  Also followed instructions to uninstall sound in device manager but it wasn't there to uninstall. Ran Lenovo diagnostics from support site and it says there are no hardware problems and it sees sound adapter. I'm stumped. Any suggestions?

After the Windows 10 April 2018 update, my Lenovo Yoga 3 14 laptop is not starting immediately. It's not boot-up delay, it's a device start-up delay like after pressing the power button, just keyboard back light blinks once and nothing will happen and it's taking 35 to 40 seconds (earlier it's 1 to 3 seconds) after pressing the power button to show Lenovo UEFI screen along with Windows loading animation (this boot-up is quick like earlier versions about 5 to 7 seconds). Re-installed the complete OS (clean install) and re-installed the BIOS (Version BACNA0WW and BIOS date 07/15/2016). But nothing helps. Changed to earlier version of windows with clean install (the one with creators update, but issue not resolved.) Formatted complete drive and cleared all partitions (including OEM) and installed on a fresh partition, re-flashed BIOS, but nothing helps. Later I thought about hardware issue. Opened laptop, removed display connector, cleaned and attached, but issue not resolved. So, it's not a new Windows issue and It might be a problem with BIOS and it needs to be updated. Since my laptop is mote than 3 years old, Lenovo probably don't bother about updating this BIOS. Any solution that I missed?Thanks in advance.

I've had my new Yoga 370 for just a couple of days, and the first thing I note is that the fan runs a lot, and the laptop generates quite a lot of heat - and that's before I've installed much. I opened it up and replaced the original 128 GB with a 512 GB Samsung 951, so most testing is with that, but the fan ran high with both. Using Speccy, I find that with just Firefox and one tab open, the system temp started at 70, then fell to 55-65.HWMonitor reported (Firefox, 3 tabs) core temps of 60-80, with overall system temp at 70.Now, it's settled to 45-50, so it's not entirely consistent. Advice on what an appropriate temperature would be?My wife had this same problem with her Yoga 260, and got it replaced with one that caused no problems, so I may have to go that route as well. On a side note, I've removed the back exactly once, to replace the SSD. I planned to swap them back to see if that changed anything, and I find that one of the screw heads is already stripped. I tightened all screws no more than finger tight, so I'm at a loss to explain this. Any tips on getting the screw out?

My 920 runs really hot. I had a Yoga 2 Pro that ran incredibly hot and replaced it with this one. Now the same issue is happening and it's driving me crazy. I had a repair tech come and "fix" my Pro but it didn't change anything. I often used the Pro on a blanket but I've been careful only to use the 920 on a hard surface. It ran really hot from the first time I used it after just trying to download a program from the web. A couple of weeks of ownership in and right now it's a good warm temperature while I'm doing light web browsing but if I bust out something more cpu-intensive, the temperature skyrockets. It gets to the point where it's about as hot as the Pro was. Has anyone else had problems with their 920 running reaaly hot or possibly over heating?

Yoga 2 13 running hot over the last year.  Bottom of laptop warm to the touch, and core temps averaging 65 C caused fan to run constantly at a high output under medium load.  By replacing thermal paste on CPU, I have experienced a significant reduction in both areas.  Temps went from average 65 C to 50 C under same load, bottom of laptop is fairly cool to touch, and fan runs without peak 100% output (which is very noisy).  My observations are OEM thermal compound degraded, but also possibly impropery applied.

Hello, Excuse my low level of knowledge when it comes to PCs, but since the last Windows 10 update I made yesterday, the cooling fan runs non stop, at moderate and max speed. It has never stopped today; only when I closed the laptop's lid it stopped (sleep mode).I made a BIOS update when I purchased the laptop (last month) - it had an update for the fan noise, but I think somehow the Window's update has deactivated it, or I don't know why else it will spin all the time, even with no opened programs.I also want to add that the temperature seems quite high (it's very hot above the keyboard). I have not made any other changes to my applications nor the daily activity (I use the laptop for work apps and the browser mostly). Please help me find a solution to this, I'm very worried.

We would be able to check for the storage capacity as it was purchased with otherwise to check it directly from the pc.
 
Try to open disc management tool to check on how the storage is partitioned to compare it to the actual harddrive capacity.

HI, So i recently purchased a Lenovo Yoga 500-14ISK (Modl 80R5003HUK) from a local retailer, and although i have no issues with the machine itself in terms of using it, i have issues with the machine running Windows 10, especiall after checking Lenovo's list of supported Windows 10 machines only to find my machine to not be on this list.( https://support.lenovo.com/gb/en/documents/ht103535) Main issues i have with the OS is the speed at which everything seems to run on the OS, as well as screen jitters when performing actions which should not cause screen jitter such as basic browsing or just moving the mouse across the screen. I have tried installin the most up to date versions of the drivers for the video card and the chipset. I would also like to note that i purchased the same Yoga from the same retailer before and had to return it the day after due to discovering the audio jack didnt recognise devices and was told it should be written off as a problem with the machine not running windows 10 well. Is there any solutions anyone can offer me in regards to fixing this? Also, is there any way a warranty could cover the return of the laptop to get one that is actually supported with the operating system it is running on. I would also like to note that the option to downgrade to an earlier build of windows (7 or 8) is no longer available. Thanks. 

A:Yoga 500 - Problems with running Windows 10

Hi, I have YOGA 500-15ISK. (i7-6500U / 8GB DDR3 / SSD 256GB / nVidia 940M). For the first time with my laptop, I had some performance issues after completion all win10 updates (mouse lags, slow restart time, varying system response and speed), so I decided to format all partitions (save some hdd space from these oversized recovery and driver partitions) and instal fresh win10 + with driver booster software I updated all drivers (win 10 don't update all drivers to lastest). And after that I don't have any performance issues (only my ears are bleeding because of cpu fan is very noisy - but it's all yogas issue).  Before visiting your retailer, you can try clean instal. (I think system reinstall can't affect warranty, but I'm not 100% sure.) In my country we can return goods up 14 days after sale, but after 14 days you must have proper reason to return your laptop, so it mostly depends on your retailer if will accept your performance issues as real deal.. maybe they will send it to lenovo service center and you will have to wait one month and after that they will return your old laptop with reinstalled system.. or maybe you have some real hw problem and they will repair it or replace it with new piece.. Tomas

A:Yoga 2 11 Running hot with short battery life

Hi David_EMG  , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
It would help if you can generate a battery report ( ac charger unplugged). 
How is the battery health if you hover the cursor on the battery icon below?
 
Battery is a consumable part and depletes its resources in time and heat is one of the factors that can affect battery life. Try running hardware diagnostics along side with this and this test for comparison. 
 
Check the battery status LED indicator (page29) if it goes to the changes from amber blinking to solid white on full charge .  Calibration either using the energy manager via battery gauge reset can also help. Manually you can allow the battery to completely drain and wait for 1-2 hours and then charge it full.
 
Update us how things go.

Now randomly my fan gets stuck on running, meaning that it continues to run even though the temperatures are low: around 35C. I mostly use Linux (Ubuntu 17.10), but this happens in Windows too. The two things that seem to help are 1) putting the laptop to sleep or 2) powering off. Anyone else seeing this? I am thinking it is the BIOS update.

Are you, like me, starting to get annoyed with the active pen not responding. Then when you go to the wacom driver settings you get the error message "The Tablet driver is not running". Forcing you to restart the machine or the service? This is a normal problem that pisses a lot of users of wacom products in general. And i found this happens alot, specially if you have several wacom products like i have a Cintiq connected to my X1 yoga.  Well surprisingly there is a really easy fix for this.  It's windows 10 stopping the service after it wakes up from sleep. To fix it just tell windows to try harder to keep it running. ? Run "services" and find the wacom services. The service you looking for on a X1 Yoga is Wacom ISD service or/and the Wacom Professional Service if you have an additional wacom device like the Cintiq connected.Right click the service and go to properties.Go to the tab recovery and set the optional fail response on first and second failure to "restart the service".there is also someone reporting that they have to set their startup type to manual. But for me it works fine in automatic. Here is a video from ma'boy MichaelLawLtd that explains how, i give him all credit for this solution:  I set it to restart on second and third attempt and have never had an issue since.

X1 Carbon Yoga 1st GenModel number: 20FQCTO1WW It worked great since I received. One day I upgraded BIOS to the latest (it was v1.23 by the time), then I noticed the fan keeps running regardless the actual CPU usage. Very occasionally, fan will stop and start again soon. Often time, the fan will start to run as soon as the laptop is turned on. It's quite annoying because of the fan noise (even though it's not so loud), and I'm sure it will cause more battery consumption.  Recently I upgraded to the latest v1.24 BIOS, but the problem was still the same. Anybody has the same issue? A bug in recent BIOS firmware?

I upgraded my yoga to Windows 10 soon after purchase a year and a half ago.  I have had few problems but one persists, intermitent problems charging with the AC adapter. There appear to be many Bios updates since the one that came with my yoga. I am running v1.03 and would like to update to version 96CN31WW(V1.17) but am justifiably concerned. - There is no means of backing up and restoring the current Bios so an update failure could be catastrophic.- The Bios readme file indicates it is for Windows 8 and 8.1.  I read a forum post that indicated that this shouldn't be a   problem on WIndows 10 and I agree but there is so little feedback in this forum or elsewhere about successful or   unsuccessful Bios updates on Yoga 2 13 so I am nervous about proceeding.- I don't know if this Bios update will solve my problem (no documentation from Lenovo about what any of the prior   Bios updates fixed) and there is always the possibility that this change could make my notebook more unstable. Again,   no means of going back.- For the reasons above, I always consider a Bios update a last resort. Anything else I can recover from and I am out of   warranty. I would appreciate any feedback on the stability and success of 96CN31WW(V1.17) updates and any information about what problems prior Bios updates for Yoga 2 13 addressed.

My Yoga 2 Pro is acting strange and I can't pinpoint where the issue lies. Eveytime I boot or reboot, I get a black screen for minutes and sometimes hours, before I get the actual Lenovo logo and then Windows 10. I've had some kinds of problems like this before when my storage would go below 200mb in a session. I would restart and then the computer would take maybe a minute or so. Didn't think much of it before, but now it seems to be a frequent thing. I've tried testing my RAM and my Hard drive and there are no problems detected. It's frustrating because I had a hunch that maybe it's my motherboard, but idk what. By the way, when I finally get Windows to run, it runs normally, and nothing looks or feels out of the ordinary. The only lasting connection I can make now is with the heating, because I noticed that when I turn off the computer to let it cool off and take out the ac charger, my laptop would still have a black screen but for only about 25 to 40 seconds before running Windows. Still not ideal but I'll take my victories as they come. What's going on here?

I cannot find where to decrease the sensitivity of the beautiful touch screen on my new Yoga idepad... and the users manual Lenovo Vantage directs me to is something of a joke on the matter... IOW, not any help. There must be a setting that will reduce the number of times the screen sends me off on unintended internet websites. Another setting I have looked for is for screen enlargment commands... I'm used to using two-finger enlargement, but the yoga idepad seems to be set for one-finger. Perhaps that is in the same place as the sensitivity adjustment?

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 there, This problem has happened several times now, and can't find any solution so time to report it.Our Lenovo Book YB1-X90F is about 3 months old, and has been updated to Android 7.1.1 (security patch 1st August 2017), and recently we have had several instances of Apps seemingly open themselves when the Book is not in use. And by "not in use" I mean it's been closed, sitting on a chair, connected to power, not being used at all for hours. A week ago we heard strange noises in the room, and tracked them down to the Yoga Book, and when we opened the Book we found Youtube App open, playing some video of some baby crying. Closed the Youtube app and found several other apps were open, apps we rarely or never use. Chrome was also open with many, many tabs showing pages we had never accessed, and History showed they opened when we were not using it.  Today we opened the Yoga Book and some new App we had not seen before was filling the screen. We dismissed it and then found the Google Play store was open, showing the page for this new App. And after closing the Play store app, and looking at task switcher, I found that Google Maps was open showing central america (I live in UK and have never looked at this region on Google Maps), Google Sheets was open (we don't use Sheets), Note Saver was open with lots of random squiggles and lines drawn on the page. There is no-one else in the house, so something is causing these apps to load on their own. Severa... Read more
