constantly running fan,
This review is from: Lenovo G570 15.6 inch Laptop (Core i5-2410M, RAM 6GB, HDD 640GB, DVDRW, Windows 7 Home Premium) - Black (Personal Computers)
First class service from Amazon , as usual, however I can`t say the same about the product.The G570 seems to have problem with the fan not shutting down for long periods of time, despite there being no programmes running or the machine being hot. This is not an isolated case,this being my second machine, the first having exactly the same problem.Amazon kindly took the other one back, as I thought that it may have just been a rogue one. Having searched various forums, including the Lenovo forum,I find that I am not the only one with this fan problem on the G570.The current view seems to be that it is a Bios setting problem.Having said that the machine does have some good qualities,it is fairly quick in start up and shut down,has a nice sleek look about it,and an excellent crysal clear screen.The keyboard has a good look and feel to it,and the keys a positive response.Had it not been for this annoying fan problem,it would merit five stars.
Having now had this machine for a little over 3 months,there is no change, fan just keeps on running. there is no feedback from Lenovo about this problem, although they are aware of it. Just seems as if they are not interested, so why give them your money! Don`t buy it!!
