I just installed Ubuntu 12.10 and the fan has been running a little hot for a good bit. Even when I switch to Windows 7, it's running hot. It didn't do this before I installed Ubuntu. I have an HP DV6 running I7, 8 GB RAM, and a 750GB hard drive. I used the SpeedFan software to see what my temperature was. Plus, the fan is pretty loud and I can feel the heat from the sides. I guess I want to ask two main questions:
Does Ubuntu cause the computer to run "hotter"?
If you have Ubuntu installed alongside Windows 7, are they both technically running at the same time, causing it to overheat?
Thank you in advance for any help
