Hi,

I have a Lenovo Z500 ideapad which I've recently (last few weeks, maybe longer) noticed is overheating. The fan is running at incredibly fast speeds and is very noisy but seems to be unable to deal with the heat generated even when running nothing. I am currently clocking these temperatures whilst my CPU is only running at around 15%:

Summary
Operating System
Windows 10 Home 64-bit
CPU
Intel Core i7 3632QM @ 2.20GHz 75 °C
Ivy Bridge 22nm Technology
RAM
6.00GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 798MHz (11-11-11-28)
Motherboard
LENOVO INVALID (U3E1) 78 °C
Graphics
Generic PnP Monitor (1366x768@60Hz)
Intel HD Graphics 4000 (Lenovo)
2047MB NVIDIA GeForce GT 635M (Lenovo) 63 °C
ForceWare version: 353.62
SLI Disabled
Storage
931GB Seagate ST1000LM024 HN-M101MBB (SATA) 34 °C
Optical Drives
HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GU70N
Audio
Realtek High Definition Audio

I have run the fan dust program and my laptop is only 2 years old and well looked after. Has anyone else encountered a problem like this? I have read about and some people think it may be related to windows 10. Could anyone come up with any fix suggestions?

Thanks

In my opinion its a case of dried out thermal paste. You may have to apply thermal paste on CPU to get rid of the issue. If you have some technical knowhow as to how to disassemble the Lappy, then you can do it yourself, else you have contact a professional for the job. Good luck.
