Re: Dell Inspiron N5010 laptop overheating on Debian 6.0.1, Linux 3.2.3, low CPU usage, radeon GPU driver
I did not understand exactly for the things You are fighting w/ but if
You are concerned on CPU too hot - I suggest to check if the modules
are loaded (not only installed on Your system) - so it was w/ mine
inspiron until I set it manually to be loaded.
Thank you for your reply,
The drivers are loaded, I've obtained the listing via lsmod.
Do you have any idea where else should I ask my question for higher chances
of obtaining an answer?
Simply put, the problem is that my Dell Inspiron N5010 (15R) is overheating
on Linux with very low CPU usage, but does not present any issues on
I've tried utilities like dellfand and i8kfan for controlling the fans,
but they both claim
that I have only one fan and that it's already at highest speed (not
sure if I have more
than one fan, or if the heating up is caused by the CPU or the GPU).
