Loud fan on Lenovo Yoga 500

Post by gunjah292 » Tue May 23, 2017 5:50 am

Hey,

my laptop fan runs very loudly all the time, even though the computer is idle. I have tried every solution I could find on the internet. Can anyone please help me?

I have not got many replies so far on my issues. Hoping that anyone will answer this time!

Greetings

This is a Kernel issue. Kernel 4.4 is not well suited to 6th generations and up CPUs. I have the same issue with my Lenovo on 4.4 Go to update manager, select Kernels from the top menu and install 4.8 or 4.10
