I am new here on Ubuntu(12.04 x64)! The problem I am facing here is very less battery life and constant noise of fan during use of my laptop! Laptop has AMD Phoneme II processor,6 gb ram ,Amd radeon mobility hd 4250 graphics.. I am not facing any issues regarding battery life or overheat on Windows 7(64 bit)! I appreciate reading my problem and hoping to get a noob friendly reply ! Thanks!
