Re: cpu overheating

When i do a cold start, the cpu fan barely spins. The result is that in a few minutes the cpu overheats and the system automatically shuts down. When i immediately turn it on again, the system detects the cpu's high temperature and begins spinning at higher speeds for the rest of the time. In both cases, the cpu fan never icreases or decreases it's speed, it just continues spinning at a constant speed since the system's startup.

I have a debian-amd64 notebook, with a turion64 processor. The above mentioned behavior remains no matter what kernel i use.

Any sollutions to that??

To me, this looks like the bios set the fan speed to what is right at the moment,
expecting linux to take over fan control.  And then linux does nothing.
Do you have the acpid package installed? It works for me,
turning the fan on and off from now and then.
The powersaved package might also be a good idea.
