friends,
My laptop is getting overheated. I have integrated graphics:

Code:
$lspci |grep vga

(standard input):  16  :01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GF108M [GeForce GT 540M] (rev a1)
and temperature is getting too high:

Code:
$ sensors

Adapter: Virtual device
temp1:        +84.0C  (crit = +100.0C)
temp2:        +84.0C  (crit = +100.0C)

I tried to install xorg-x11-drv-nvidia as suggested in https://ask.fedoraproject.org/questi...dora-18-gnome/ but then my X-system is not
coming up. ( I was basically bitten by https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=981953 and updated my xorg's. If needed, I am posting my my xorgs:

it looks like the nouveau driver is not turning on the fan
common problem with the nouveau driver
see the fedora forum page on installing the nvidia driver
a lot of work must be done to replace nouveau with nvidia
for 17 but is applicable for 19

For what it's worth, I was just able to run the nVidia proprietary driver installer, which removed and blacklisted the nouveau driver for me, and installed the nVidia driver. Was quick and painless. Have you tried to install the driver for your card from the nVidia website?

Note that you probably want to have the kernel headers installed first...then boot into runlevel 3, and execute the .run file.
