High temperature cpu on ubuntu 11.10 3.0.12 kernel and i5 processor
i am a ubuntu user and recently i've noticed the temperature is way too high...right now it is 88 C... and the gpu is 99!
With windows the temperature is almost half of it!
I've tried both installing the patched 3.0.13 kernel, the 3.1.something kernel, and the GRUB fix, still the issue persists...
so i was wondering, should i switch distro? do you think that would help me? Which distro should i choose?
I use the laptop for work and cnanot either revert to windows or have the computer melted down!
thx a lot!
The first think to check is to make sure you have all the important ACPI modules enabled in the kernel. Check the kernel config for:
This is quite an annoying and potentially dangerous (from an hardware standpoint) issue and i want it to solve it asap, i'm willing to revert to older kernels if necessary :)
