    GPU temperature, how do I find it out?

    It says it all in the title,

    I have a Intel 956 chipset in my laptop.

    Please, some help as I think its overheating Or is very hot.


    By any chance, where is the GPU located? Under/near the touchpad? (as it gets hot too hot)

    Thank you all,
    Tom

    and what laptop - the chipset may not be the heat source!

    yea, have you tryd lm-sensors?
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install lm-sensors

    This program will help you determine which kernel modules you need
    to load to use lm_sensors most effectively. It is generally safe
    and recommended to accept the default answers to all questions,
    unless you know what you're doing.
    
    We can start with probing for (PCI) I2C or SMBus adapters.
    Do you want to probe now? (YES/no): y
    Probing for PCI bus adapters...
    Use driver `i2c-i801' for device 0000:00:1f.3: Intel 82801H ICH8
    
    We will now try to load each adapter module in turn.
    Module `i2c-i801' already loaded.
    If you have undetectable or unsupported adapters, you can have them
    scanned by manually loading the modules before running this script.
    
    We are now going to do the I2C/SMBus adapter probings. Some chips may
    be double detected; we choose the one with the highest confidence
    value in that case.
    If you found that the adapter hung after probing a certain address,
    you can specify that address to remain unprobed.
    
    Next adapter: SMBus I801 adapter at 1c20 (i2c-0)
    Do you want to scan it? (YES/no/selectively): y
    Client found at address 0x44
    Probing for `Maxim MAX6633/MAX6634/MAX6635'...              No
    Client found at address 0x50
    Probing for `Analog Devices ADM1033'...                     No
    Probing for `Analog Devices ADM1034'...                     No
    Probing for `SPD EEPROM'...                                 Yes
        (confidence 8, not a hardware monitoring chip)
    Probing for `EDID EEPROM'...                                No
    Client found at address 0x52
    Probing for `Analog Devices ADM1033'...                     No
    Probing for `Analog Devices ADM1034'...                     No
    Probing for `SPD EEPROM'...                                 Yes
        (confidence 8, not a hardware monitoring chip)
    Probing for `EDID EEPROM'...                                No
    
    Some chips are also accessible through the ISA I/O ports. We have to
    write to arbitrary I/O ports to probe them. This is usually safe though.
    Yes, you do have ISA I/O ports even if you do not have any ISA slots!
    Do you want to scan the ISA I/O ports? (YES/no): y
    Probing for `National Semiconductor LM78' at 0x290...       No
    Probing for `National Semiconductor LM78-J' at 0x290...     No
    Probing for `National Semiconductor LM79' at 0x290...       No
    Probing for `Winbond W83781D' at 0x290...                   No
    Probing for `Winbond W83782D' at 0x290...                   No
    Probing for `Silicon Integrated Systems SIS5595'...         No
    Probing for `VIA VT82C686 Integrated Sensors'...            No
    Probing for `VIA VT8231 Integrated Sensors'...              No
    Probing for `IPMI BMC KCS' at 0xca0...                      No
    Probing for `IPMI BMC SMIC' at 0xca8...                     No
    
    Some Super I/O chips may also contain sensors. We have to write to
    standard I/O ports to probe them. This is usually safe.
    Do you want to scan for Super I/O sensors? (YES/no): y
    Probing for Super-I/O at 0x2e/0x2f
    Trying family `National Semiconductor'...                   Yes
    Found unknown chip with ID 0xfc11
    Probing for Super-I/O at 0x4e/0x4f
    Trying family `National Semiconductor'...                   No
    Trying family `SMSC'...                                     No
    Trying family `VIA/Winbond/Fintek'...                       No
    Trying family `ITE'...                                      No
    
    Some CPUs or memory controllers may also contain embedded sensors.
    Do you want to scan for them? (YES/no): y
    AMD K8 thermal sensors...                                   No
    AMD K10 thermal sensors...                                  No
    Intel Core family thermal sensor...                         Success!
        (driver `coretemp')
    Intel AMB FB-DIMM thermal sensor...                         No
    
    Now follows a summary of the probes I have just done.
    Just press ENTER to continue: y
    
    Driver `coretemp' (should be inserted):
      Detects correctly:
      * Chip `Intel Core family thermal sensor' (confidence: 9)
    
    I will now generate the commands needed to load the required modules.
    Just press ENTER to continue: 
    
    To load everything that is needed, add this to /etc/modules:
    
    #----cut here----
    # Chip drivers
    coretemp
    #----cut here----
    
    Do you want to add these lines automatically? (yes/NO)y

    yes, now you need to install a simple aplication to see those readings, just go into add/remove and install "X sensors", then run it, it should be under applications>system tools and it will display lm-sensors readings

    EDIT- i believe that you have to restart ubuntu after installing lm-sensors, so the kernel loads the modules

    Remember most laptops use shared memory and therefore more than likely will have no sensor on the graphics processor. Only your higher end dedicated graphics cards from Nvidia and ATI will have sensors on them.

    My 7600GT and 8800GT have sensors on them and the nvidia-settings program reports the GPU temp. Now CPUs will usually have a sensor on them.

    How do you know it is the graphics processor in the laptop that is the culprit of the heat build up?

    The hdd is usually located in the front of the laptop near the touchpad.

    Also maybe your cooling fan and fins are dirty. Blow a little compressed air in the fan inlet to loosen up dirt.
    Windows XP - Excellent computer virus detector.
    Windows Vista - Most bloat for the money.

    Re: GPU temperature, how do I find it out?

    But my fan is at the back.

    And yes, it could be the HDD as its right next to the touchpad. How do I make that cooler? and can I find out the interal temp of the hdd?

    And, could I be able to change the speed of the hdd?

    Thanks
