Lenovo G770 Fans not working

Contrary to everyone else's problems here my fans just not seem to be working anymore or something. I have switchable graphics with an integrated Intel and an AMD 1gb dedicated graphics card. When I switch to "high Performance" my lap top gets so hot, around 91 degrees Celsius. But when I switch to Power saving it stays a bit cooler. The trick is that I don't even hear my fans working most of the time. While playing SC2, a few times I've heard the fan go off(pretty noisy) and it cooled my computer off really fast. But most of the times it just builds up the temperature and becomes choppy as hell. I don;t remember it being this bad at first, but it seems that it has some kind of an issue now.
Pleae help, I'll try to download the latest drivers now, but I think I've already done that.

Lenovo G770 has ThinkVantage System Update? I thought that is suppose to be for ThinkPad system only?
Go to the link below and Select Win 7.
Then update the BIOS and Energy Management driver.

I have a Y2P (i5) ... Feel free to ping me if you want me to test some applications with your Y2P if you have the same model. I don't mind keep doing recovery on it if needed .... =)

  • Lenovo G770 Fan not spinning up after resume from sleep or hibernate

    Hi guys,
         My lenovo G770 is facing an issue where when ever I resume the system from either sleep mode or hibernate, the fan does not spin up, as a result I have to either restart the system or open the system, pull the wire of the fan and put it back in the power socket.

    Hey Abdul,
    Welcome back.   If the fan runs normally on first boot until you suspend / resume, then I might imagine this is power management quirk, or something confused in the embedded controller.
    1) Try going into BIOS and reload defaults - this might refresh values there.   
    2) Try uninstall / reinstall power management driver and the energy cut software (Idea power manager).
    Did you recently update BIOS or drivers?
    I would also try some temp monitoring software just to see how CPU temps run after you come back from sleep to see if the fan should be running.

  • Lenovo T420 fan not working

    I've had my T420 (4177-CTO) for around 2 months, and the fan has already stopped working. Yesterday, the fan was continuosly running all day even when it was sitting idly. Today, the fan won't run at all, and my CPU temperature is going up to ~80C  (170F) when I run anything intensive. The computer itself is even way too hot to touch at the bottom. 
    Does anyone have suggestions as to what I can do to fix this problem? I can't tell if something's wrong with the hardware or with the BIOS. I'm still covered by a warranty but I can't afford to lose my laptop for an entire week (work).
    I hate that Lenovo doesn't have centers where you can take your laptop to be looked at. I had similar problems with my T61 a few years ago, and even had my fan replaced for it to break again. 
    Go to Solution.

    For troubleshooting, I would try another operating system (such as an Ubuntu live CD) and see if the fan starts working. Also, there might be some power management settings in the BIOS (one to choose the performance on AC and another for battery), and you could fiddle with the Thinkvantage power management setings.
    However, it seems really strange that this problem would suddenly occur...

  • Horrible fps problems, fans not working

    Whenever I play League of Legends on my 15 inch retina macbook pro, the game starts out smoothly with a consistent 60 fps.  However, after a certain period of time, the fps severely drops to about 5.  It never used to do this, but now it happens consistently.  Also, the fans have not turned on in months; they used to always be on whenever I played League, but they seem to never turn on anymore.  Could the fps problem be related to the fan not working?  Please help, and thanks!

  • 2540p fan not working

    Hi,I bougth netbook hp 2540p windows 7 instaled,and have a problem with cooling fan.The fan not working on the battery ,working connected to power adapter all the time.have you any suggestions how to fix it.thx
    This question was solved.
    View Solution.

    Windows 7 or Windows 8? You are likely set to passive cooling in power management while on battery which means the laptop will do almost anything rather than kick on the fan while on battery. It will slow the processor instead. If you shift to active cooling your battery will get eaten up very fast. In short, I think your system is probably fine and messing with it does not make any sense. However, here is some more information on passive vs. active cooling:

  • Y40-70 fans not working

    I sent my computer in for a repair because of a faulty wifi card. A few days ago, I got it back, but now the fans aren't working at all. The temperature is constantly at around 70°C. I've already tried updating the bios, and even doing a factory reset, but the problem still persists. I have to use an external laptop cooler for it to be usable. I'm so tired of dealing with the problems with this laptop at this point.

    Hi MustafaHashmi,
    Welcome to Lenovo Community!
    As per the query we understood that you are facing issue with touchpad not working in your Lenovo Y40-70 laptop.
    Please try connecting external mouse and check for the issue. Also try to check in safe mode and check for the issue

  • Lenovo AIO C440 - not working infrared remote control

    is there any hint how to get infrared remote control working for a new C440 model? Tomorrow I will try to measure and/or replace batteries which could be bad. For now it is totally not working.
    Another question: the remote should work only within AverMedia TV app or in the whole Windows 8?

    hi bohdik,
    Welcome to the Lenovo Forums.
    The IR Windows Media Center remote control is for use with C440 models with optional TV tuner. If you have this model,  make sure the TV Tuner driver and the ITE CIR Driver from the lenovo support site are installed under Device Manager (press Windows Key+R then type devmgmt.msc) then follow  the Set up a TV signal in Windows Media Center. guide.
    You must have Windows 8 PRO to enable Windows Media Center

  • Error 90B - Fan not working properly?

    Hello, this is my first time here so please excuse me if I posted this in the wrong section.
    First, general specs:
    HP Pavilion dv6 Notebook PC
    Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit
    BIOS:  InsydeH20 Version CCB.03.61.09F.21
    Processor:  AMD A6-3400M APU w/Radeon HD (4 cpus ~1.4GHz)
    6g RAM
    (If anything else is needed to help me ask, and I shall post it)
    Last week I received an error 90B for my laptop's cooling fan.  I was playing Guild Wars 2 and in the middle of playing my laptop shut down suddenly.  When I turned it back on it presented the error I'm asking about.  The thing is, the system wasn't overheating in the slightest and the fan was working just fine before it shut down.  I've tried many fixes proposed on HP's website and from a couple of friends:
    -Compressed air blown into the vents
    -System restore to a point where the fan worked
    -Hard reset
    -BIOS update
    None of those proposed fixes worked.  However, I did find something that fixed it...for about ten minutes.  I fiddled with the Catalyst Control Center and set my CPU power back to its default 1400 MHz, and I shut down my system.  After I restarted it I miraculously didn't get the 90b error!  You could imagine how happy I was.  I shut it down one more time to see if the error was truly fixed, but lo and behold it showed up again.
    The only change that could have caused the issue was me downloading a program called SpeedFan to monitor my system's temperature (I did NOT (I repeat, DID NOT) change any settings using the program - I purely used it to monitor the temperature.)
    I cannot afford to have a repairman replace or look at my laptop as of now, we have bills to pay and food to get, and I absolutely NEED this computer to function.  I have work to do, and classes to sign up for, and we have no public computers for miles.  Please help me!

    Not every fan error is a heat error. There is a sensor that detects a bearing that is wearing out or spinning that is out of round. You can sometimes limp it along for 6 months before the fan absolutely has to be replaced. When it does you will not be able to get past the error.

  • PAvilion dv6, fan not working correctly?

    Was on my laptop, it shut down randomly, notification popped up saying fan was not working correctly. Is there a way to fix this? Or will it have to be sent away?

    Try a can of compressed air in the reverse direction of the normal air flow. You may just have a massive amount of dust on the inside of the heatsink near the fan blades.
    Here is a youtube video and about 15min in you can see the fan clearly:

  • System fan not working properly

    i have a hp 15 notebook 15-r004ne  laptop and when i turn it on, it states the fan is not working correctly, then shuts down after 15 seconds or continues to windows if you press enter. I dont know what to do now please i need help .
    Answers will be appriciated.
                                                           Thank You.

    The fan may simply be clogged with dust, pet hair,etc. Pick up a can of compressed air and use it to blow out all vents really well.
    If the problem continues try a hard reset.Disconnect all external devices first.
    1-remove power cord and battery
    2-press power button for 30 seconds
    3-reinstall only power cord for first startup.
    4-power on
