Fujitsu Siemens mysterious Temperature problem


hello guys!

i own a fujistu siemens laptop. i have a big problem with my laptop temperatures.
i have dual boot ubuntu and xp.

when i use windows xp my laptops temperatures are fine without any problem when playing games extracting etc...

when i use ubuntu with ati radeon drivers installed with Envy. the temperatures are going to 65c 70 75 and 80. i must have install gnome applets to monitor the temperature and clock down my centrino cpu to have slower proccesing otherwise the laptop sensors automaticaly shut it down or freez.
i recognize that when i install ati drivers and havng compiz enable the temparatures are higher and freez the laptop or shut it down. also this happen during high proccessing..


in my opinion ati drivers doesnt control the ati radeon x1700 card and overheat. if i doesnt install ati drivers the laptop doesnt overhet too easy but it does if i didnt clock it down with gnome-sensor apples.

Note: using windows xp i didnt have overheat problem. playing a lot of hours games extracting watching dvd etc... only this happens on linux.
i try different distros to check.
ubuntu , fedora.

I had the same problem a couple of years ago with SUSE. It went away when I switched to Debian. This is a hardware issue and as your laptop was designed with Windows in mind there is, unfortunately, a chance that other distros will not make a difference - it's still worth a try though.

do you have the 'fan' acpi module inserted, I assume you must have 'processor' and 'thermal' inserted since you can see temperatures, and clock down the processor. You can check by running 'lsmod', and if it is not inserted use 'modprobe' to insert it.

Code:
modprobe fan

Looks like all the right modules are inserted, including fan. That must not be the problem then. Sometimes on some computers the fans won't work without these modules.

So you're sure that temperature is the one for the CPU right ?

I agree that I now suspect the ATI drivers for it, try a different version.
