Dell Inspiron 1525 Overheating
My Dell laptop is overheating and Google does not give clear answers
When I watch videos or there are multiple programs running, the laptop gets hotter until it shuts down. This problem did not occur on 8.04 (32 bit), it did on 10.04 (32 bit) and now with 11.10 (64 bit).
What I tried so far:
1. The BIOS is up to date.
2. Some people talk about graphics driver issues in relation to overheating, but no clear answers. The Graphics card is: Intel GM965/GL960.
3. The fans don't start working until the laptop is already hot.
I don't know what else to try or what to search for anymore. Can someone please help me?
