I'm having a problem with my dell studio 1558 were my fans are running very loud.

I never had this problem on windows 7 and I'm really struggling to find a fix for it.

I've tried other distro's as well and they have the exact same problem.

It doesn't seem to be cpu as nothing is using a lot of resources, I've tried installing ati drivers but then i keep running into other problems and the noise doesn't seem to go away.

Thanks for the help, much appreciated!
