I remember when I had Windows XP installed on my HP laptop, the fan would run but not all the time. In fact, overall, my laptop hardly made a noise. Since installing Ubuntu 10.10, the fan runs constantly. Is there a way to control the fan so it doesn't run persistently.

I'm experiencing same problem with 11.04. My desktop has a MSI Motherboard [MS-7528] and Intel Core Quad processor. Any Suggestions?

The next second after posting, it stroke me, that it might be caused by the graphic card. I then used the Ubuntu driver update to install the proprietary Nvidia driver. That did it instantly after reboot.
