Hello Ubuntu comunity.
I recently installed Ubuntu 12.10 on my HP notebook (i7 2.0 ghz, 4gb memory ram) and I'm noticing that my computer temperature is rising up to 90-96º Celcius within the first half hour that I start running Ubuntu.
Not so long ago I cleaned up the fan and on Windows, my notebook does not overheat. Dust is not the problem.
There doesnt seem to be a process consuming a lot of resources.
I had the same problem before with Lubuntu and Kubuntu. With Kubuntu after an update, it got miraculously fixed.
I belive its a video card driver problem,I tried to install the drivers manually from the website (I got a Ati Radeon HD 6770) but failed on the installation process (It goes unresponsive when trying to install).
Edit 1 : Result of doing a
lspci -nn | grep VGA:
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller : Intel Corporation 2nd Generation Core Processor Family Integrated Graphics Controller [8086:0116] (rev 09) 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller : Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] nee ATI Whistler XT [AMD Radeon HD 6700M Series] [1002:6740]
Thanks in advance..
