    CPU overheart using Deal Inspirion 1546

    Hi everyone.

    I've recently bought a Dell Inspirion 1546, and the main problem is the cpu temperature.

    Here's what sensors say :

    Idle
    acpitz-virtual-0
    Adapter: Virtual device
    temp1: +59.5°C (crit = +100.0°C)

    k10temp-pci-00c3
    Adapter: PCI adapter
    temp1: +58.6°C (high = +70.0°C, crit = +100.0°C)
    On a flash app in firefox
    acpitz-virtual-0
    Adapter: Virtual device
    temp1: +77.5°C (crit = +100.0°C)

    k10temp-pci-00c3
    Adapter: PCI adapter
    temp1: +76.2°C (high = +70.0°C, crit = +100.0°C)
    (it can reach more than 90° sometime).

    60° is kinda hot too for a idle desktop...

    Here is some basic information about my hardware :
    CPU :
    model name : AMD Athlon(tm) X2 Dual-Core QL-64
    stepping : 1
    cpu MHz : 1050.000
    cache size : 512 KB
    GPU : 02:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc M92 LP [Mobility Radeon HD 4300 Series]

    Graphic driver (unsure) : FGLRX (up to date)

    The laptop is pretty new (about 6 months). I've opened it few days ago, it's totally clean of dust.

    How can I make the temperature decrease to a normal level ?

    Hey,

    I have the exact same problem! With the same hardware running debian. I even tried switching to the open-source readon driver (mesa 7.12 git) and tweaking the cpu governor.

    Right know ,while compiling a custom kernel, the sensors output even reaches 87 and 85 degrees with a load average of 1.72 1.55 1.29
    Code:
    acpitz-virtual-0
    Adapter: Virtual device
    temp1:       +87.5°C  (crit = +100.0°C)                  
    
    k10temp-pci-00c3
    Adapter: PCI adapter
    temp1:       +85.1°C  (high = +70.0°C, crit = +100.0°C)
    I don't think it is possible to fix this under linux since i have the same problems under windows 7. Of course I can't accurately measure the temp and load under windows but it is just as hot to the touch.
