    I can't find it on that site. The date of the file on that site is 11/13/2013. Can you give a link ?

    Hi All - First time poster here. I just started having an issue with the cooling fan on my Yoga 2 Pro. It kicked on and ran all night last night. Even after I re-started this morning the fan immediately came back on full tilt and won't shut off. Any ideas how I can fix this?

    Did you check in the running applications if something is lurking high CPU usage or did you install something that triggered it ?

    I have my Y2P for almost one year now and don't know what the fan sound like, never heard it. Even when recoding video or vectorizing images it hardly surpasses 60-65° C.

    Good luck

    I got it. Just download the file from mobilesupport.lenovo.com. It's version 38. Lenovo updated the file but did not update the date of the file on that page.

    Hi Tonio - thanks for the reply. Oddly, nothing was running that was consuming a high level of CPU resources, just Outlook and Firefox...maybe 15-25%. I shut down and restart a couple of times this morning with no luck.

    I finally got the fan to shut off by powering down my Y2P and then sitting it on my kitchen counter (granite, so it's cool to the touch) for about a hour. When I powered back up the problem was fixed. Perplexing, but I'm glad it is fixed now.

    As an aside, how do you check the CPU temp?

    I use CPU Clock gadget with some app (it's marked on the dl page) to integrate CPU temperature

    Hi Tonio,

    @hobbitz gave the answer.

    It would have been too easy if Lenovo had put the right date, wouldn't it ? :D
