    ACER Aspire One AO725 fan problem

    Hello everybody. I hope that this is the right section for my thread.
    I've got an Acer Aspire One AO725 on which I've installed Lubuntu 17.04. The problem is that the fan doesn't work even if the temperature is rising over the critical value and then the laptop suddenly shuts down.

    Thank you for your help

    Have you updated BIOS / UEFI?

    No, but I've read that it's risky to upgrade it (and I don't know if it is possible to do so having only lubuntu installed on my computer). I consider it as the last option and I was searching for alternative solutions.

    Have you read that it's risky for your particular hardware? Don't pay attention to what people have experienced using completely different gear.

    Sorry if I'm this late with my reply. I've reinstalled windows, updated the bios (the latest one was the 2.12 according to https://www.acer.com/ac/en/ID/conten...t/4253;-;AO725) and reinstalled Lubuntu but the problem is still there...

    So far, so good.
    Next step is testing the latest software. How does it work in a live boot of 18.04 (development version)?

    Sorry if my question is stupid but I'm not an expert, I've searched the 18.04 here on https://lubuntu.net/downloads/. But won't the 18.04 be released on April 2018? (If not, can you please tell me where can I get it?)

    Ok, I tried running it on a Live boot and it worked fine, but then when I installed it on the PC i encountered same problem as before.
