    EDIT1
    TLP, Jupiter, laptop-mode-tools does not work.
    Also my laptop is 1 yr old and i cleaned my ventilation.
    Also it runs really cool on Windows 7 with the same performance.
    Catalyst not working either.

    Re: My HP Pavilion g6 laptop cpu temp goes over 90C. ubuntu 12.04

    One of the most common culprits for overheating laptops is poor ventilation. Do you use you laptop at a desk or with a stand? If you keep it on your lap, couch, bed, etc., the vents can easily be blocked and the cpu can overheat very quickly.

    Also, how old is this laptop? Over time dust can build up inside the chassis which can also prevent ventilation. If that's the case, you can go pick up a can of compressed air at a department store for about $5 and try to clean out the vents.

    Re: My HP Pavilion g6 laptop cpu temp goes over 90C. ubuntu 12.04

    To reduce runtime temps, we used to recommend installing Jupiter -- but that has been abandoned.

    Instead, you can try usinf tlp instead.

    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:linrunner/tlp
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install tlp tlp-rdw
    Code:
    sudo tlp start
    Ubuntu 14.04, Mint 17; MS Win 8.1.
    Will not respond to PM requests for support -- use the forums.

    It's an Intel/ATI hybrid graphics, so you may want to try installing Catalyst: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Bi...ybrid_graphics
