I'm pretty new to unix but I'm running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and my fan is constantly loud and my laptop is hot in the left portion next to the touchpad even when I've got nothing running.
HP envy m6
Radeon HD 8550G Radeon HD 7500M/7600M Series dual graphics
2 x 8Gb SODIMM DDR3 memory
I've read there can be a problem with the dual graphics and the fan, but I'm not sure if this may be the problem
