I have a Dell XPS m1530 running Ubuntu 13.10 and began noticing the keyboard surface get hot. It seemed odd to me that the fan runs intermittently at lower temperatures. I've already checked the wiring and heat sink paste inside the machine, after which, the CPU and GPU were both at 200F. Occasionally, my computer will shut down due to overheating.
Is there any way to solve this issue without buying a new machine altogether?
