    No fan support with 9.10 running on a Compaq

    My laptop (a Compaq Presario C700) has been overheating. It never actually shuts off, but it does get hot enough that I don't really want to use it anymore. The fans never come on, and they didn't come on in the Jaunty release, either (in Jaunty, it wasn't reading the temperature, either, so at least that has changed).

    There is also no way to control the fans from the BIOS.

    Any suggestions?
