I have a notebook HP Pavilion g7 running ubuntu 12.04.

I am having heating issues. I installed psensor and temperature is around 60 C.

I've read many forums with the same issue but they all seems to have a special video card without a driver or with an opensource driver.

Here's my sysinfo:

And finally the output of sudo find /sys | grep drivers.*00:02.0:

Am I missing a driver? if so, which one?

Well I have the same problem with my older Compaq 6715b, the only way I could help it was to add a fan, I watch your progress, if you find a solution will be helpful for me too I hope. –  FarhadA Jan 27 at 7:26
