View Full Version : [ubuntu] Dell Inspiron 14R N4010 Problems(Brightness & CPU Temp)

October 26th, 2010, 08:24 AM
Hey everyone,
So I freshly installed Ubuntu 10.10 on my New laptop Dell Inspiron 14R N4010.
So far I fixed mostly all the problems I have already faced.
Two problems still remain, and are important for me to have them fixed asap.

1. Brightness Control(very important) -
fn-Up, fn-Down keys moves the brightness slider around but doesn't change the actual brightness.
I am also not able to change the brightness using the power management tool.
This problem is draining my battery life crazy.

2. Cpu Temp (not that important)
Lm sensor 3.12 is not detecting my Cpu temp.
Sensors-detect is not able to find anything to monitor either.

My specs:
Dell Inspiron 14R N4010
CPU: Intel i5-460m 2.53G
Graphics - Intel Graphic Media Accelerator
