My PC is apparently overheating. It shuts down instantly without warning. It did this often with Lubuntu 13.10; I just upgraded to Lubuntu 14.04 LTS and it has done it a few times as well. I am afraid too high a temperature may damage the PC.
It seems to be running pretty hot to the touch underneath the PC. I used Fedora 14 for years, and I don't remember it doing this. I don't remember it doing this with Windows XP either.
QUESTION: What is the best way to monitor temperatures in the PC while using Lubuntu 14.04 LTS?
I am dual booting Lubuntu 14.04 LTS and Windows XP.
QUESTION: Can I compare the temps while using Lubuntu 14.04 LTS with temps while running Windows XP?
I read some stuff online that seemed to indicate that fan drivers in Lubuntu may not work well for my PC. My PC is a Toshiba Satellite L25-S1216 Laptop. Other than trying to clean dust out of the PC and maybe working with the software that runs the fans, I am not sure what else to do. Any comments or suggestions would be welcomed.
