Since ubuntu updated my install to 3.2.0-37-generic, my laptop fan constantly runs. I never had this issue with the previous kernel versions. To fix this problem, I would like to revert back to the previous kernel version. Yet when I use grub and select one of the previous ones, I now have a red error display showing in the panel. the error message makes it sound like there is now some kind of dependency issue/s because I'm using the "old" kernel (it's only two versions back).
How can I revert back to using one of the older kernels and meet all dependencies (not have an error message)?
I'm using fully up to date 12.04.
