Sony Vaio Laptop Fan Noise after win 8.1 upgrade

[ Edited ]

Hi, 

    I just recently upgrade my windows 8 to 8.1, as a result all systems are OK but the fan of laptop is not responding even after I already adjusted my power settings to silence.  I hope to get feedback soon because I can't tolerate the sound of the cooling fun at high rpm.  Thanks

Re: Sony Vaio Laptop Fan Noise after win 8.1 upgrade

So this started happening after you upgraded to Win 8.1? Which laptop do you have? Flip owners have this issue. Is yours a Flip?

Hi Chirs_007,

 

Have you followed the recommended procedure for Updating Windows 8.1? Usually fan noise after upgrading to Windows 8.1 means that all the necessary updates was not done. Please provide us information if you followed the recommended procedure.

Re: Sony Vaio Laptop Fan Noise after win 8.1 upgrade

Hi I have the same issue. I upgraded to win 8.1 and now you can clearly hear the fan, much louder than before. The laptop also gets very hot where the fan is, even though the vents are not obstructed. This happens after just 20 minutes of the laptop being on. My model number is svp132a1cw. Any help you can provide would be great. Thank you

Chirs_007,

 

Kindly install this driver update for your AMD Graphics Driver. This might be the cause of the loud fan noise. Please keep us posted. Hope everything works out!

 

 

rickyoshry,

 

Our system cannot recognize the model SVP132A1CW. Please provide us the exact model name of your laptop so we can provide you solutions.

HI Mark

I am not sure why your system cannot recognize that model name but that is the model name that is printed on the underneath of my computer. There is a number on the box that says SVP13213CGB - could that be it? It is a brand new laptop. It also only makes a noise when the computer is plugged in - it is fine when it is on battery.
