    HP Probook 4530s - laptop ovearheating

    Hi everyone,

    I facing with very annoying problem, mean it overheating! I have installed Jupiter and CPU Freq scaling indicator and this will drop down temps apropx 2-3°C.

    However, the temperatures are still high! The highest temperature point I've seen was 75 degrees, which is only 10 degrees less then a critical level (85°C).

    Even now, after two hours of browsing Web CPU temp is very high.




    I have HP Proobok 4530s with Intel HD 3000 graphics integrated card and i3 processor. I'm working on Ubuntu 12.04 64-bit. Today I updated kernel to 3.2.24-030224-generic with no changes. Fan is always running and laptop is very hot. It simply impossible to work. Touching the laptop is like touching a heater!

    Of course laptop is clean and work flawlessly on Widows 7 (never experienced an overheating problem). I'd like to stay on Ubuntu, but I cant get rid of the heating.

    I've been reading a hundreds of post regarding overheating problems. Installed Laptop-Mode-Tools, modified Grub ("quiet splash pcie_aspm=force") with no results. This drive me crazy and finally If I cant get a solution I'll have to back to Windows, since I can properly work on this laptop when is hot. Any suggestion will appreciated. Thanks

    I have exactly the same laptop. I never noticed any overheating with ubuntu 12.4 - gnome-shell. Batterylife is about the same as windows.

    Hi,

    HP Probook 4530s were also distributed with ATI graphic card, however mine dosen't have an additional ATI card. Perhaps your has it? I read it somewhere that in Idle all 8 processor cores are running and producing lot of heat. In Windows Intel used additional drivers (?) to disable "non needed" cores. Exclusion of additional cores decrease power consumption and hence less heat generated.

    Many owners of HP laptops (also with Probook) struggling with an overheating. So your particular example is very interesting. Can you provide more details about your specs?

    I have also tried to run on this laptop Linux Mint from a flash drive and there wasn't any problem with heating. By far I have to stay with Windows 7. Actually I wrote this post now from Windows 7. I wish that someone find a proper fix for that.

    See if there is a newer BIOS version available from HP; if so, I would install the update in Windows 7 and see if that helps.

    This has something to do with an Intel drivers IMHO. I quit with an Ubuntu because of this issue. There's no solution of this problem so far. I'm on Windows 7 recently and my problems with an overheating aren't exits.

    I'd like to start using Ubuntu again, however, the overheating is a major problem for my laptop (and I assume that for many as well). Can some one from an Ubuntu builders assist to get rid of this issue? Thanks

    That was a good advice, to be honest. I did updated BIOS to a newer version downloaded from here. After installing Ubuntu 12.04 LTS again, I noticed that temperatures aren't so hight as before.



    The notebook isn't that hot and I can easily work on it. So far so good, I would say. I planning to use Ubuntu per a couple of days and test it.
