My notebook Acer Aspire 4810TZ is overheating on Ubuntu 13.10 (64bit). I use just Google Chrome or Firefox and small aps like empathy or skype...

My machine has integrated Intel graphic card and second Dedicated Mobility Radeon HD 4330 (I have not installed drivers for it, update centre has not offered them).

Any suggestions how to deal with it?

P.S.

TLP is already installed, but it does not help....

P.S.S.

I have switched of Radeon dedicated video card in BIOS, but it did not solve the problem ;(

does the fan kick in normally? and are the air holes free (my netbook tends to overheat when on a soft underground since the air holes are at the bottom...) –  Wouter Dec 4 '13 at 13:59

all holes and fan are OK. It does not heat on win7 at all –  Roland.K Dec 4 '13 at 15:11
