I have an Acer Aspire 5740(G) that overheats constantly, even in normal use. After many hours of trying fan control utilities to speed up my fan, such as fancontrol and lm-sensors, and none of them working, I decided to finally ask this question. Is there a program like the Windows app, RWEverything, that does the same thing? I know how to use this to edit my ACPI table (I think) to force the fan to run at maximum speed, but I can't find anything that works with Ubuntu.
Even If there isn't, any fan control program that works is fine.
Thanks in advance.
EDIT: I have cleaned the computer out, making sure there is no dust. The fan itself may be failing, but turning it up to its highest speed does help to keep the computer cooler.
EDIT: The BIOS settings have no mention of the fan at all.
