I am running an HP Pavilion DV6TQE Laptop with Ubuntu 11.10 / Windows 7 dual-boot. Ever since I've installed Ubuntu, I've noticed that there is a loud quick clicking noise coming from my laptop. The noise stops when the fan kicks on to a noticeable setting, leading me to believe that the cause may be that Ubuntu is running the fan motor at a speed that is too slow for the motor to handle properly. I'm hoping to come across a simple software fix so I can put this problem aside. Thanks in advance.
