error 22, different one

Lets start from the beginning:

My laptop (HP pavilion ze5185) is running Ubuntu 7.04 FF, and was constantly shutting down, due to "overheating", or some other issues. I would start it up, it would run okay for 5-30 minutes, then complain "critical temp 53 C" and shut down, and when it didn't complain about that, it would shut down due to some other reason.

I went into the garage to blow out the dust (which there was plenty of, lol). I still got that error, so I know it wasn't the dust causing that issue. I tried getting into my BIOS to check the shutdown temp, but somehow my BIOS p/w was changed, and I tried all the backdoor passwords, none of which worked.

I then started Ubuntu up, and kept getting "error 22". After the 3rd time, I pressed the ESC key, and it showed not one, but TWO Ubuntu OS's for some reason. I booted up under the 2nd one to see if I'd get the error again, and to see if I somehow messed something up when installing it before. It booted up perfectly fine, and all the settings and everything was saved onto this "partition", too. I haven't gotten any shutdowns *yet*, and I was finally able to install the updates, and not have Ubuntu crash.

So... Does anyone know how or why I have 2 "different partitions" of Ubuntu? Or even have a clue as to how that happened?

Also, does anyone know how to reset the bios password on a laptop? I originally set it, so my dad wouldn't/couldnt lock me out of my computer (again), because he was mad at me.

First one is the normal boot...
Second one is the safe boot... AFAIK...
It seem that you've (or your pc) messed up the configuration/filesystem etc.
Try running fsck.ext3 /dev/(your hd here)...
Hope this helps...

My dad said it was probably because one was updated to -16, while the original was -15 (idk what he meant by that). It works fine now, though.

The crititcal temperature is acting up again. How do I change/fix the critical temperature problem? I'm looking at getting a brand new fan, and replacing the thermal paste, but I want to know if there's any other way to keep the processor cool (without slowing down the CPU power)
