Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have an AMD A6-3400m. When installing ubuntu 12.10 the CPU gets too hot. When I go to see the cpu usage not see anything unusual. I think she is working at or above the specifications of the cpu.

I can not finish the installation because the notebook warms both the system disarms and the cooler is maximum.

Do not know if it's just me but I never had a good experience using Linux on AMD. When I used Intel these problems did not happen.

What is happening can?

Ps: The laptop works perfectly in Windows 7 Home Premium 64. No crashes, no overheat, simply works.
