    Over heating laptop

    I recently dual booted my laptop with win 7 ultimate and ubuntu 12.04. i noticed it started to over heat on me for unknown reason really it had been working fine with just windows and after a few weeks i notice that when once i chose to boot to ubuntu the fan stops working and i really can't spend more than 5-10min in ubuntu before i have to shut it down and let it cool off I'm using an Acer Aspire 7720. Any ideas on how to verify if its the fan itself taking a poop or if i'm suppose to install a driver for the fan or something

    To ge the status/information for your fans, lm_sensors should do the trick.

    Since this looks to only be occurring only on the Ubuntu install, I would start looking at the logs/modules you have installed to get further insight.

    You could try using Jupiter:

    There are no drivers for fans.
    Ubuntu 17.04 Mate, Mint 18.1 Mate; MS Win 8.1, MS Win10 Pro.
