View Full Version : [ubuntu] HP dv2799ea fan problem

December 2nd, 2008, 11:21 AM

Anyone can help me with the issue of fan problem on my hp dv2799eo laptop with ubuntu 8.10?

I have integrated nVidia 8400M GS gfx-card in here and I think the fan problem is with that.

The problem is that when the system goes idle, the fan starts to go grazy, going high speed to low speed.

I've read similiar problems on other laptops also but didn't quite see any good solution yet. Atleast my BIOS should've been updated with latest version before I changed from Vista to Ubuntu.

Driver downgrade didn't work, it still did the same thing.
