Windows users also complain about this. This laptop uses the Intel Q87 express chipset which does not have PWM outputs so the only way of controlling the fan speed is via the BIOS. You could try changing the power management profile to balanced. I do not recommend removing dust by using an air duster to blow the dust into the laptop. It is much safer to use ...

Have you tried the i8kutils solution? 1) Install i8ktuils: sudo apt-get install i8kutils 2) Add i8k line into /etc/modules: sudo nano /etc/modules and add a new line containing just: i8k 3) Make sure the module is loaded at startup. sudo nano /etc/modprobe.d/options.conf and add a new line containing: options i8k force=1 4) Reboot and run the ...

Controlling the fan speed using fancontrol is not possible with many laptops because of the design of the fan control hardware. So how do you tell if it is possible on your laptop? I am going to use an example of an MSI GS60 laptop to show the steps to take to find out. I also intend to update this answer with the results of answering this sort of question ...

This laptop uses the Intel HM87 chipset. The mobile version of this chipset does not include PWM hardware so the fans cannot be controlled by the operating system. If any fan control is possible it will be via the BIOS. The owners manual for the MSI G60 states that some models of this laptop have a "cooler boost" button that controls the fan speed. It also ...

You have an Asus K75VM laptop which has an Intel H76 chipset. The mobile version of this chipset has no fan control outputs so you do not have the necessary hardware for software fan control under any operating system. Your fan speed is controlled by your BIOS. It sounds like it is working as intended as 50 degrees Celsius is a normal temperature for a ...

I have the same problem. If you add the kernel parameter acpi_osi= (and nothing after the = ) my case fans stop running at maximum speed and its work fine.

I noticed some heat issues with Ubuntu as well, that is to say I really noticed the heat after picking up a very hot idle laptop. Ultimately for me the solution was as simple as a can of well applied air duster to make sure the cooling system could function more efficiently.

compiz is a windowing manager. This may be common knowledge. But some comments hint it is not. Some (many?) HP laptops are designed such that the CPU and Graphics Processor share the same heat management resources. If we assume the CPU is cool and the Graphics Processor is over loaded, this explains how Psensor can report hight temperatures and low CPU ...

Switching to other distribution (Kubunto to Ubuntu Mate) does not fix this problem. However installing kernel 4.4.8 seems to fix this issue (tested few times in Mate). I does not know if it is persistent, or I have luck five times in a row. I does not tested it in kubuntu, but result should be same. Suspend however takes much more time than in 14.04 (up to ...
