Suse 9.1 fan going mad
I had this problem before and was away for a while, but back now so here it is:
In Windows xp pro, I have no such problem, but in Suse 9.1, my laptop's fan is superloud, even while running a single application ( even with a single console open being idle). I need to program in there, but it is so loud that I get worried about my computer after two hours of listening to this.
I was advised here to reinstall ACPI. I still have installation CDs 3,4,5 (not 1 or 2 though), but now Suse won't open them! Like it wont open any CD since the myComputer icon does not respond. I recently reinstalled Grub after a reinstallation of Win XP had overwrote Suse's path in the MBR. (Now I am also unable to open the three folders I have on the desktop that contain all of the docs I have in Suse (that contain les than 300 MB)). I also downloaded the rpm's from licq, but after I open them I cannot find an install ACPI option under power management (or using the search option).
Thats about it, thanks for any suggestions.
