high cpu temperature


Hi,
I have thinkpad laptop that runs on debian 8.2 and gnome , for the second time , I get the temperature of the cpu very high because the fan stops working .
Do you think it is a software issue or hardware ? when I suspend the laptop and run it again the fan does work .

Thanks for any help you could offer ,

Use a live CD from another Distribution and see if it happens again. Most likely it will need servicing.

Hi,
Thanks for your reply .
What is servicing ?
I have windows 7 on the same laptop, can I check if it happens there instead of a live cd ?

Thanks,

Serving covers many things but in this instants clean and check how well the fan is working. My own laptop would make a right racket before I cleaned it (High temperatures, Noise Etc...). On dual boot both of them should exhibit the same symptoms if it's hardware. If only one say Linux and not on Windows you need look for a solution in Linux. The idea of a completely different distribution with no modifications (As we all do there is a temptation to fiddle with things ) you can judge the performance and temperature of your laptop.

No installation is required, just boot

I did a search with this "thinkpad laptop debian high temperature" and it came back plenty of hits on this subject.

Do your checks first. It's better to find something simple rather than the expense service call.

Regards
Ray

This is almost certainly a hardware problem.

Servicing might mean cleaning the dust out of the vents and heat sinks or perhaps getting a new fan installed. It depends on what a hardware diagnosis finds.
