    hp pavilion dv6 laptop overheating. tried various solutions.


    I have an hp pavilion dv6 with ATI radeon graphics card. The cpu is currently at 70 degrees idle and gpu at 90 idle!!!!!!!! I have paid for a proper cleanup (£60 later) including fans and thermal paste etc. I have tried:

    1. the Jupiter app which is supposed to adjust the power usage.
    2. checked the bios is the latest version.
    3. edited /etc/default/grub to include
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash pcie_aspm=force"4. installed the proprietary drivers ( only can't monitor gpu then... )

    with temperatures staying the same... All the above were suggested on this forum and others.

    Any advice will be much appreciated.
