On the contrary, the fan is at its max from the boot on. Problem is, it's no 
match for my dual-core Turion when running at its max (2 GHz with 100% CPU 
usage). I think it's by design, this laptop just isn't designed to be running 
at 100% CPU usage for more than 5 to 10 minutes in a row.

@acpi=off. I came to that idea too, but have one important question: if I 
install the OS with acpi=off, will I be able to enable acpi later on? You see, 
I WOULD very much like to use suspend2ram, suspend2disk, CPU 
scaling/throttling, display dimming and other capabilities that are offered by 
this laptop.
