    You should also check and make sure the CPU/GPU heatsink is clean and if not clean it.

    That sure isn't the case with my laptop, I got it three weeks ago.

    In this link it's written about cpu scalling, not about cpu fan regulation. I don't want to change my cpu rate, but to adjust my fan so that it shall start at 65° to cool down, not at 50° as it is now.

    Oh sorry didn't read your post carefully enough. I know it's about CPU scaling, if you read my original post I said: " I can manually change the CPU frequency and make it stay below 50° but that's hardly a solution."

    I have no idea how you can control when the fan starts running otherwise this thread would have been solved.

    Hi, same problem here.

    I've been reading about this in several forums and it seems to be something about the new kernel, could it be a temporary solution to go back to an old kernel?

    Any idea about how to solve this issue?

    I think I've found the solution!!

    Firs of all you have to read this thread:
    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...ght=hardy+heat

    Maybe your problem is related to the misconfiguration that is solved up on that thread. (remove powernowd and install cpufreq instead)

    I tried that, but it didn't work for me... so I did enable CPU Scaling just like it is showed here:
    http://ubuntuguide.org/wiki/Ubuntu:F...aling_features

    Using "ondemand" module has decrease the heat, but sometimes the fan begins to make a loud noise again... so here it's our temporary solution

    Any other idea?

    Sorry, but it doesn't Work...

    Right now I'm having the same problem even with the CPU Frequency Scaling... so it has to be something else...

    I seriously doubt that going back to the previous kernel would do the trick.
    I tried Ubuntu 6.06, 7.10 and 8.04 on my laptop and the same problem occurs
    in any version I've tested.

    Would be intresting to know about your temperatures and what kind of CPU you
    guys have. I'm also a bit confused since I monitor my temperature in two different ways; one of them is ACPI which gives a higher number and the
    other is through lm-sensors wich gives a lower temperature. Which one of
    these should I rely on?

    Some of you might be rid of the fan-noise by configure your BIOS. My BIOS
    is a very simple one with no option for temperatures or fans.
