Since I have switched from Win 7 to Ubuntu, it seems my laptop is much hotter and the fan is much louder. Is it normal behavior or maybe can I fix this by tweaking some settings? If so, what would be the steps to troubleshoot the problem?
Here is the output for "sensors" in the command line:
olalonde@olalonde:~$ sensors acpitz-virtual-0 Adapter: Virtual device temp1: +56.0°C (crit = +100.0°C) temp2: +53.0°C (crit = +100.0°C) temp3: +65.0°C (crit = +100.0°C)
Update: I got a Dell Studio XPS 16 which is known for overheating, but after 1 year on Windows 7, it was never as bad as it is on Ubuntu.
