Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

I am a Windows user trying to move over to Ubuntu without much success.

I have installed the 11.10 version as dual boot by using Wubi tool on the Ubuntu website and can only use the operating system for about 5 minutes before it overheats and shuts off the machine.

I have done my searches and seen many posts about overheating but cannot see one that I am able to apply to my particular case.

Can anyone give me a steer on this please?

Could you tell us more about your system, i.e. processor, mainboard, graphics, maybe exact modell number of your Vaio? –  Dominik Mar 5 '12 at 15:37
This question should instead be filed as a bug report, and as such is off-topic, thanks! Instructions on filing a bug report are here. –  Jorge Castro May 22 '12 at 18:30
