View Full Version : [ubuntu] Acer 5750G fan speed

January 15th, 2012, 11:10 PM
I've just bought Acer Aspire 5750G laptop and installed Ubuntu 11.10. The problem is that hard drive is placed right under the touchpad and it's kinda hot (~40C) and it's not comfortable for my hands to use touchpad and keyboard. But during playing games under win7 it's not so hot.
As I understand, in Ubuntu the processor is cold (~45C) and fan is almost always idle, so hard drive isn't cooling at all, but when fan is working, hard drive's temp decreasing.

So the question is how to increase fan speed in Ubuntu?
