i am new with ubuntu so i need some help. i installed 14.04 but laptop keeps overheating all the time. searched around the net, but could not find solution. can anyone help? i have HP Probook 4525s.
here i am back again. So after going back to windows, trying openSUSE, eOS... i have found out that the problem in my case is AMD/ATI driver. I have installed eOS 0.3 (ubuntu 14.04 based) and by default it have chosen the X.Org AMD/ATI driver but the pc temperature was again around 82 degrees C. So i went to additional drivers and picked AMD fglrx proprietary. Now I am happy to say that my linux is running smoothly and cpu/gpu temperature does not exceed 61 degrees C. Hope this will help! Cheers
You can install TLP, a power management tool. TLP comes with a default configuration already optimized for battery life and reduces overheating.
You can install TLP with the following commands
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:linrunner/tlp
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install tlp
After installation, start TLP using the command
sudo tlp start
This command is required only once.
