    Hello Snaidy and Welcome to Ubuntu,

    I'm not sure I can help you with the overheating problem but I would try a new version of Ubuntu may I suggest 12.04 as both 11 and 10.04 will be come obsolete in April of this year and will no longer receive updates after that point.

    you can down load 12.04 here
