Hi I have a Lenovo Z500 with i7, 8GB RAM, 1TB HDD. In Windows 7,8 and 8.1 I don't have any problem with the laptop temperature while running just the system or surfing the web, but under ubuntu 13.10 the system is overheating a lot !!! I dont now what the problem is and how to fix it.
I tried using TLP and Laptop-mode-tools and the system is still overheating. I wonder if the OS can damage the components by overheating? Is there any solution (software) to keep Ubuntu 13.10 on my laptop without overheating? The ouput of scaling_governor is : ondemand. Temperatures : Acpitz 54, Nvidia GPU - 66, Intel CPU - 75 , Core Zero 74, Core 1- 70, Core 2 - 72, Core 3 - 74, this values are from Psensor Monitor. I tried upgrading to 14.04 but I cant make made ubuntu work in paralel with windows 8.1 were I dont have any problem with temperature . Why only in ubuntu 13.10 and how to fix it ?
