Installing the latest nvidia drivers and restarting made it work in the end. I also removed acpi=off from my boot parameters.

The Asus am1m-a motherboard is really unusual in that it does not have a CPU, a GPU and a supporting chipset, but relies on a complete system being integrated into an APU (a system on a chip). Given this unusual architecture it is not surprising sensors struggles. I suspect its going to be very hard to get sensors to work properly. I would remove lm-sensors ...

The fan is running because the GPU, not the CPU, is getting hot. You have hybrid Intel/Nvidia graphics hardware and I think the Intel GPU is getting hot because of a kernel bug. Please raise a bug report by typing ubuntu-bug in a terminal.

The MSI Megabook vr201x BIOS does not offer fan control. The vr201x uses the Intel HM76 express chipset. The Intel datasheet for this chipset states that the mobile version of this chipset does not support PWM fan control. I am afraid you don’t have the necessary hardware.

Maybe you don't have the drivers for the dedicated graphic card and Ubuntu use the integrated, that may be embedded into the CPU, so it gets hot and the fan try to cool it down. I'm not sure of this but for me, it makes all sense.

I have this same problem which is why I dont't natively use Ubuntu. You need to manually setup fan control. The answer to this question should help you out: How to control fan speed?

totem-video-thumbnailer creates thumbnails for videos. One possible reason it can take up lots of CPU, is if you have your file manager pointed to a folder that's used to download many media files, such as with a bit torrent client. Because then totem-video-thumbnailer will keep trying to create a new thumbnail every time the file is changed, which will fail ...

The Asus Z87-A has a Nuvoton NCT6791D SuperIO chip to read temperatures and fan speeds and control the fans. Instructions on how to read and control the fan speeds are given here fan configuration of Z97-E under OpenSUSE. They are for OpenSUSE and the Z97-E motherboard but the process will be pretty much identical for the Z97-A under Ubuntu.

This laptop comes with a Windows program called Health Monitor. When this runs it shows the CPU and GPU temperatures and the fan speed. Clearly the sensors are there, however sensors-detect can't find them. If you are comfortable with compiling and making programs you could try the toshiba utilities here Toshiba Linux Utilities However as I do not have a ...

Enable DPM by adding a boot parameter. This should greatly help power consumption, especially when idle. To do so, edit /etc/default/grub and add the 'radeon.dpm=1' to the GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT line, so it would look something like: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash radeon.dpm=1" After you save/quit the text editor, update grub: sudo ...

You should place the configuration file in /etc/i8kmon.conf instead of /etc/default/i8kmon. The i8kmon utility is a TK script which has a hardcoded path for the configuration file. See the output of grep sysconfig /usr/bin/i8kmon. According to the below pages, /etc/default configuration files work with an incompatible logic of loading the configuration ...

You need to establish which fans are making the noise by running the PC with the sides off and listening to each fan. Is it the CPU fan, the GPU fans (I see you have two graphics cards), or the case fan(s)? You can test if a fan is the one making the noise by gently touching its centre with a finger to stop it. You also need to establish whether the ...

I assume you are trying to change the speed of the system fan in response to the GPU temperature. I think the speed of the GPU fan can only be controlled by the GPU driver (if at all). Install 'lm-sensors' and 'fancontrol'. There is an excellent set of instructions for doing so here From the fragment of the output from sensors you have posted it seems you ...

NBFC on Linux is experimental (as stated on GitHub NBFC homepage). Playing around with acerhdf looks even more difficult. If your BIOS supports supports fan control enabling this and removing any fan control software you have installed is the safest way of getting effective fan control. If the BIOS does not feature fan control (most modern laptops BIOS ...

Does the BIOS have an option to control the fan speed? If so use it and then the fan speed control will be independent of the operating system. I have not used Windows since XP, but as far as I am aware the Windows operating system does not have fan speed control built in, so you are using a Windows application to control your fan speeds. This application ...

A temperature of 102 Fahrenheit is perfectly normal for a laptop HDD. Toshiba HDDs can operate up to 55 Celcius = 131 Fahrenheit. The fan in a laptop is designed to cool the heatsink on the processor and video chip and will have little effect on the temperature of the HDD. If the fans came on when you were running Windows 10 but not Ubuntu it is a measure ...

First you need to get lm-sensors detecting all the sensors on your board. Run sudo sensors-detect and accept its defaults and allow it to add the relevant chip modules to /etc/modules. Then edit /etc/default/grub. You need to append acpi_enforce_resources=lax at the end of the line GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX. Here is a screenshot of mine with the relevant line ...

On more recent Ubuntu using systemd, you need a similar script but in /lib/systemd/system-sleep: #!/bin/bash case "$1" in post) exec service fancontrol restart;; esac

You can try to install (or check if it is already installed) thermald. It is a daemon that prevent your PC from overheating. To install run the following command: sudo apt-get install thermald I also suggest to enable Intel P-State frequency governor that manage how your CPU change working frequency. To do this edit grub configuration file sudo nano ...

found out f2 on booting advanced options there is a option to turn off cpu speed control then after disabled the problem disappeared. fan speed keeps stable, but you better check the temperature by putting your hand on the laptop, for internet it is working fine right now.
