Re: Laptop overheating
You can check in Additional Drivers to see if any are being offered, but if they aren't, there aren't any drivers you can install.
Overheating is a common problem in laptops because the recent Linux kernel versions do not provide the idling support that is already there in the MS Windows kernels; thus, the CPU runs faster in general, and gets hotter.
You can try using Jupiter to see if that helps: http://www.ubuntubuzz.com/2012/04/fi...roblem-in.html
Ubuntu 16.04 Mate, Mint 17.3; MS Win 8.1, MS Win10 Pro.
Will not respond to PM requests for support -- use the forums.
