    I figured out a way to reduce the core temp.

    When booting up in 11.04, before you put in the password to login, there is a menu at the bottom of the screen that says what type of Ubuntu you're running. Click on that menu and select the "Ubuntu Classic" option.

    The down side to that is your desktop won't be as "pretty," but it will reduce the core temp and extend the life of your comp. Also. Your Windows button won't work in the classic desktop.

    I've already tried that before I removed Ubuntu 11.04. I did not record a meaningful difference in the core temperature, and the super key was still working (if I remember correctly). "Pretty"? I've used the Ubuntu Classic layout since Ubuntu 7.04.

    Ubuntu Classic on Ubuntu 11.04 was also buggy. Frequently, Ubuntu would think that it was running Unity, so it would remove the window borders. It also thought that the bar at the top belonged to Unity, so I had some graphics issues there.

    Even if the core temperature problem was resolved by Ubuntu Classic (which it can't be because it's a kernel issue), all the other problems still persist.

    "7177sf" isn't a valid model variant. I don't know what HP Pavilion dv7 you're referring to.
    Nevertheless:

    I just found a workaround that I think may work: http://bigbrovar.aoizora.org/index.p...-ubuntu-11-04/

    My ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5000 Series graphics card driver, installed by "Additional Drivers", works quite well.

    I'm clueless here. My wireless card works out-of-the-box.

    Looking at the power consumption bug, it looks like a fix was committed (made, but waiting for release) for this bug. I hope that battery life improves after installing the fix.

    The HP Pavilion dv7-4177sf comes with ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650 Graphics. I have the same type (I think? Unless "For Quad Core Processors" means something different?).

    Did you install the restricted drivers for that graphics card on Ubuntu?

    In Ubuntu Unity:

    1. Dash
    2. Search for and open "Additional Drivers".
    3. Activate the "ATI/AMD proprietary FGLRX graphics driver"
    4. Reboot.

    Thanks for catching that. An Ubuntu Forums moderator deemed my thread a "recurring discussion" and moved it, which invalidated the old link.
