View Full Version : [ubuntu] Overheating on Toshiba A505-S6965

June 10th, 2010, 04:25 AM

I'm having a problem with overheating on my Toshiba A505-S6965.

The fan used to rev up and was noticable. Now it stays low. I think I noticed this change back when I upgraded from 9.04 to 9.10 (which is what I'm using now).

I am getting reading up to 90 deg C and occasionally it will shut down.

I changed to the windows partition and ran "Speedfan" and it is maintaining temps at around 55-60 deg C (which I'm much more comfortable with).

I also notice the fluctation in the fan speed from time to time.

Help to prevent overheating would be greatly appreciated.

With thanks,
