Re: Samsung Series 7 Laptop Fan Constantly Running
Understand the fan noise can be irritating, but that is not the REAL problem; instead, the problem is that bugs in recent Linux kernels used in Ubuntu prevent the CPU from scaling down automatically (which it CAN do in Win7).
This keeps the CPU running fast, which keeps the fan running fast -- to cool down the CPU.
The real solution is to slow down the CPU, which will cool it down, and also slow down the fan.
Google on jupiter -- if you can install that, you may be able to throttle the CPU back.
Ubuntu 15.04 Mate, Mint 17.1; MS Win 8.1, Win10 TP.
