Possible overheating with acpi?
I am running Redhat 9.0 on a Pentium IV laptop. I installed acpi to get my soundcard working and everything was fine. Now it seems to be overheating. I know that the fan turns on at 60C but the machine usually crashes at about 58/59C. If it is allowed to make it to 60 the fan turns on fine and cools it to 45C but it never gets that far!
Is there a way I can change the acpi settings so the fan comes on at 55 instead? (To at least diagnose if overheating is the problem!)
I have also just moved from UK to NZ so could it be some weird different type of down under electricity that is affecting it!
Finally when it crashes it does some weird beeping (1 beep, 3 beeps, 3 beeps, 1 beep) that is not mentioned in my very brief user manual.
Sorry I can't write more but the temp is approaching 55 so I better post before I can't!
