View Full Version : [ubuntu] presario v5000 fan problems on 8.04

December 3rd, 2008, 05:59 PM
my laptop is presario v5000 series. it has ubuntu 8.04 running on it. apparently there is some problem with fans ever since I installed 8.04. or is it a coincidence with my system fans failure? How would I know?

I searched this fan problems but seems like this problem is there for only dell systems.

I should also add that firefox, opera, text editor, image viewer etc every application crashes with high cpu usage and system shuts down for high temperature.
Please advise. thanks in advance.
