Lenovo G505s - Fan + Overheating

Recommended Posts

Hello!

 

My Lenovo Hackintosh has its fan almost always running, overheating sometimes. I have to manually fan it to keep it from overheating, though that doesn't help much. I turn on the A/C, fan the computer, and it still overheats.

 

This also happens when trying to install the Mavericks 1.9.1 update. It tells me "3 minutes remaining" under a progress bar and "Software Update". Then the fan accelerates and the computer shuts down immediately

 

 

This is not the situation in Linux/Windows/Unix. What can I do to get the fan to run normally/keep this thing from overheating?

 

Thanks!

what are the specs for that machine? all i keep finding is an AMD core version. if so thats probably the issue. apple power management is intended for Intel cpu. you can try adding nullcpu to see if the temps change.

Oh my word, I apologize for my, what is it, almost six-month later response... I swayed from OS X for a while, but now I am back.
 
Concerning the overheating, it is no longer an issue although I have AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext installed. I opened a sealed vent on the bottom of my laptop's case, which is directly below the fan. I think that is what solved the issue.

Quite true! I may test the Null CPU Power Management kernel extension, and see how my system fares.

 

I will post the result.

 

Result - The fan runs beautifully.
