    Question HP Pavillion g6 is overheating since Ubuntu 12.04 installation.

    Hey everyone!
    I have successfully installed Ubuntu 12.04 (64 bit) yesterday and came across a small problem. My laptop is overheating badly, it becomes very hot in 5 or 10 minutes after I start it. The fan is going crazy, but it doesn't help to cool the PC. It is very strange, because it didn't act this way when I was on Windows 7.

    What can it be? I have a HP Pavillion g6.
    P.S. Please explain it simple =)) I am a newbie.

    what are the system specs?

    lshw

    command will show them.

    DO you have hybrid graphics? if so you need to install proprietary drivers and enable them propperly.
    Read the easy to understand, lots of pics Ubuntu manual.
    Do i need antivirus/firewall in linux?

    Both of these links may work, the 1st allows you to turn OFF the Radeon graphics and the 2nd lets you install Jupiter which is a nice power manager:

    Another couple of points to ponder:
    Your machine may have two fans and one of them may not be running.
    The heat exchanger may be full of fluff.

    I used to have the same problem, seems like a common problem with Optimus graphics, disabling the graphical acceleration seems to work, but for me, installing the nvidia-current driver ( sudo apt-get install nvidia-current) seems to fix the problem.

    All right, I'll try from the top =))
    Where do I put the "lshw" command? Sorry for the stupid question, but I am very new to Linux.

    I have a sticker saying "Quad Core and Radeon Dual Graphics"...

    Hi ,
    there are NO stupid questions. Nobody born learned

    Open a terminal (ctrl+alt+t) and copy-paste these commands from here to terminal . One line = One command
    Code:
    sudo lshw -C video 
    lspci -nnk | grep -iA2 vga
    post the results back here .
    Put the results inside [CODE] tags , by highlighting the text and click the # symbol on top of message pane.
    Thanks

    Программа 'prep' на данный момент не установлена.  Вы можете установить её, выполнив:
    sudo apt-get install loki
    Well, it was not hard at all =)) Here are the results. The second code says I don't have 'prep' program. Should I install it?

    Hi ,
    it is not prep ... is grep . You can copy the command from here and paste it in your terminal (for more accuracy) if you want.
    Code:
    lspci -nnk | grep -iA2 vga
    Thanks

    Actually, I did some researches and a lot of people are experiencing the same problem. Try to update your system, if there are any compatible new drivers for you graphic card it will maybe solve the problem. try :

    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
          sudo apt-get upgrade
