View Full Version : [ubuntu] Laptop Fan control

October 26th, 2010, 03:17 PM
I have an dell Inspiron 15r on which ubuntu 10.04 64bit is installed...
the laptop heats up very often (for no apparent reason.. even now, m only using firefox and the temperature is 72 C)
so i'd thought i speed up the fans..
anybody knows how to do that?

when i run
i get output.

Adapter: Virtual device
temp1: +72.5C (crit = +87.0C)

does that mean fan is not detected?
