Re: Problems with Ubuntu 11.04 with hp envy 14 [graphics]

If anyone know how to fix this I would really appreciate it (:
Are you sure you are using the integrated graphics card and not the discrete graphics card? And that the discrete card is turned off? Are you using switcheroo to change the cards? If you haven't done anything to change the cards, the discrete GPU is the default, and it may on and creating enough heat to require the fans to be one. I'd think it would run cooler than 50-60 on the iGPU. What do you use to measure the temp? I could measure mine and find out if your temps are normal.
