CPU fan stops at activating swap file on mint livecd
I am a newbie so please be gentle with me. I have read around various forums and googled for an answer but still cannot find an answer.
I am trying to install Mint 3 (celena) on a winfast desktop running an AMD sempron 3000, but cannot get the livecd to run without stopping the main cpu fan.
I have tried
This led to another problem - namely that starting the partitioner seems to stick at 6% - it has been there for ten minutes before I shut the PC down for fear of burning my system.
I already have windows xp on the hdd (samsung sp1604n -I tried another hdd and still had the problem) and have unallocated disk space in readiness for the install.
I hope that I have given enough information for someone to help me.
Have you tried any other Live CDs? Maybe the kernel version in Mint 3 has some issues.
Thanks for that. I just downloaded another distro when someone suggested a tweak in bios and the fan has not stopped running since that.
In Bios, then, I disabled smart fan control.
I wish i had realised it would be that simple!
