Well I think the title is specific enough.

Some notes of what I already tried to do:

  • Installed lm-sensors and added coretemp to modprobe.d
  • Installed tlp

Nothing of this seemed to work. I also have acpi_osi=Linux and acpi_backlight=vendor on my GRUB.

Please, help me! Its getting really annoying listening to the sound of the fan turning on, and after 5 seconds going off. And this happens every 30 seconds.

Browsers these days can be very CPU intensive and the laptop knows this when the fan comes on to cool things down, then goes off for a while until hot again... This is normal... You could try a different browser to see if that helps any, my personal favourite is Midori as it's very light and my laptop fan hardly comes on when using that...

  • Thank you, but your answer is no good.
