    Re: Toshiba Satellite M505 overheating problem

    i have Toshiba satellite pro l300,,, i found that if i removed "Acpid" from the package manager and install "toshutiles" and "toshset" will fix the problem, after having a very high temperature (it was like 80 sometimes ) now it's stable on (50-60) degree.
    i think i'ts solved

    Re: Toshiba Satellite M505 overheating problem

    I have fiddled with them, but I'm kind of mish-mashing posts. Could you make a list of options to try?

    To be more clear, I did acpi_osi=Linux, acpi_osi="Windows 2006" . I'm not sure how to do Multi-word entries, based off this post http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php...2&postcount=46 . Anyways all the trip points where the same I pipped them to a text file so I could compare the default "Linux" and ""windows 2006"". I am pretty sure I messed up the windows 2006 one though.

    I'm slightly curious if certain trip points are targeting fans that do not exist. It seems the longer I work on it, the more it starts to work (yay!), but at the same time, it could just be that the laptop is getting hotter, setting higher trip points that actually work. Because when I come back to it I am at square one.

    while writing this and doing some tests, there was post #71. I'm going to give it a try, though from what someone said earlier, 50 degrees is still a bit hot.

    also: powersaved is no longer in the repos, so I couldn't try that.

    toshutils is for apm, and not acpi. It says that it will work on older model laptops.

    I bought mine in December, so I don't think the m505 qualifies.

    However, toshset is in my install by default! and reading it's detaisl says:

    Toshset is a command-line tool to allow access to much of the
    Toshiba laptop hardware interface developed by Jonathan Buzzard. It can do
    things like set the hard drive spin-down time, turn off the display
    and set the fan speed without the help of the kernel.Toshset requires an experimental version of the toshiba_acpi kernel module
    with an ACPI-enabled kernel. Otherwise it works only if the laptop supports
    the old APM BIOS. (The last of these was produced something like 5 years ago)
    Please read README.Debian how to install the experimental version of the
    toshiba_acpi kernel module. (Ubuntu users don't need it)
    yet when running "toshset" it says "required kernel toshiba support not enabled"

    to be clear, this toshset appears to be doing nothing.

    to post #72
    i think that the crit degree is 110 or something close to that, so 50 degree is cool enough

    toshutils will also not fix ur problem

    This is a collection of utilities to control a Toshiba laptop. It includes
    programs to turn the fan on and off, to view the power mode, and to set
    the supervisor password.

    Note that these utilities work with APM features in the Toshiba BIOS.
    If your laptop's BIOS only supports ACPI and not APM, then toshutils will
    probably not work for you. Toshiba's newer models tend to support ACPI
    only, and therefore toshutils will not work with them.

    I got that, I'm looking more closely at the 'toshset' package. It does work with acpi if the kernel is configured right. And at the bottom of the package details it says

    Please read README.Debian how to install the experimental version of the toshiba_acpi kernel module. (Ubuntu users don't need it)
    Perhaps there is a boot-up flag that makes the kernel work with toshset.

    That may be a dead-end. Trying to enable the toshiba_acpi stuff gives an error
    FATAL: Error inserting toshiba_acpi (/lib/modules/2.6.32-21-generic/kernel/drivers/platform/x86/toshiba_acpi.ko): No such device
    This may mean that newer toshiba models don't use that system, or that something in newer ubuntu versions breaks that module.

    I'm not qualified to say either way.

    So moving on...

    We seem to have to different camps of experiences with the m505. There are people who can get fans working by suspending and resuming. And then there are people who can't get the laptop to resume and thus check if the fans work(me). This also seems to correlate to the people with the AMI bios(me), and the Pheonix bios.

    Has anyone else noticed this?

    i wonder how did it work with me

    ps : i also removed acpid package, maybe the BIOS is controlling the fans rights now not the OS it self

    I also removed apcid, but I think our laptops may be to different to compare experiences.

    For the omnibook stuff, do I need to reboot after each modprobe?
