I downloaded ubuntu 14.04 on my old acer 5315 but it keeps shutting down after like 20mns because of the fan but when I switched back to windows it works perfectly. I was considering to upgrade the BIOS but It seems a little bit risky. Can somebody tell me an alternative way to fix this problem? Thanks.
