I have a new Acer Aspire S3 notebook and problems with the fan. After installing Ubuntu 11.10 (but also with the Xubuntu live-disc) the fan is running constantly. Is there any possibility to:
- Stop the fan manually to see the heat development
- Adjust the fan-control
- Reduce the processor load or something else to reduce the produced heat
Has anybody experience with this system?
I also tried the
sensors-detect command from the
lm-sensors package and
sudo pwmconfig. It responds:
/usr/sbin/pwmconfig: There are no pwm-capable sensor modules installed
Since I have to decide fast whether to return the notebook or not I also posted the question in this forum.
I hope that is ok. Any hint is very much appreciated.
