    Exclamation Hardy runs hot!

    So with the release of 8.04 I decided it was time to wipe windows clean and start afresh with 8.04, got it almost completely set up now, Wow installed, compiz fusion, everything is working, but one thing I have noticed is that my laptop hpdv9000 is getting extremely hot!
    I decided to install lm-sensors to investigate, as it turns out I was right cpu's approaching 70 degrees Celsius and gpu up over 75 at times, this is definitely not a standard operating temperature, checked sysmonitor no processes using all of my cpu, so I tried disabling compiz, no effect on the temperatures either. My cpus are not even running at half frequency and temperature remains high and the fans never really seem to pick up and cool things down!

    Thanks for the help!

    My laptop:
    HP Pavilion Dv9000
    Amd Turion 64x2 2.00ghz (running 32bit 8.04)
    2GBs ram
    2 120gb seagate hdds
    nvidia integrated graphics card, using drivers 169.12
    HP DV9623ca 2x AMD Turion 64x2 2.00GHZ, 2gb RAM NVIDIA 7150 go Broadcom 4312, 50gb / 120 gb /home (hardy) 35gb / (fedora 9) 35gb / (opensuse 11) 1.5 gb Swap

    I just posted a thread to fix the nvidia gpu on toshiba p100's not sure if this also helps with a HP laptop, but since it's a nvidia problem it might just work. You could give it a try but keep your original dsdt.dsl file (make a copy of it before editing) so you can undo the stuff by recompiling the old dsdt.dsl file (step 5 and 6). No guarantees here, but hey you can always try it.

    *Edit*
    Tried your suggestion and _T_0 among other things were not in the dsdt.dsl file, so I guess this fix will not help me.

    Re: Hardy runs hot!

    Thanks for the suggestion but I am not willing to give up on this yet, I am positive there has to be a workaround, I just have to find one soon, Idle temp with nothing open is 60 +, any and all ideas are welcome!

    Re: Hardy runs hot!

    I have a vostro 1000 and mine seems to be running hot as well. I haven't checked the temp as you have, but the fan turns on much more frequently than when using windows or gutsy or mint daryna.

    If someone has suggestions on how to fix this issue, I would really appreciate it. I would hate to consider going back to Windows full time. I have made an almost complete conversion to Linux and don't want to stall complete conversion any longer than I have to.

    Thanks all,
    Huntwell

    Care to install lm-sensors and report back your temperature, I wouldn't mind knowing what temps, other people are getting.

    how do I install those kinds of sensors? I would be happy to if it didn't involve anything too complicated.

    Thanks

    sudo apt-get install lm-sensors sensor-applet

    then you should be able to add it to your gnome panel right click add to panel hardware sensor applet.

    also as a side note, i just installed ubuntu-restricted-extras with absolutely no intention to fix this problem and for some reason temps are lower but still too hot 55+
    I will have to see what changed when I installed that package to cause things to cool by 10 degrees.

    I don't know, that doesn't look that unusual.
    I have an older HP with a P4M @ 2.4 Ghz, and according to the sensor, the temperature fluctuates widely even with "nothing" running. I think 35 C was the lowest I've ever seen, but it's also been 55.
    As for the computer getting hot, that's what laptops are supposed to be doing.
