I have a hp notebook with
Intel® Core™ i3-5005U CPU @ 2.00GHz × 4
Intel® HD Graphics 5500 (Broadwell GT2)
I mainly use it for reading pdfs and typing documents. But even under normal usage the laptop seems to get quite hot to be placed on my lap. I read through the forum and tried several troubleshooting steps but none of it seems to make any change. I used the
sensors output here. The
pwmconfig doesn't seem to work due to driver incompatibility. I can only get the cpu core temp. Below:
pch_wildcat_point-virtual-0 Adapter: Virtual device temp1: +40.5°C acpitz-virtual-0 Adapter: Virtual device temp1: +27.8°C coretemp-isa-0000 Adapter: ISA adapter Physical id 0: +44.0°C (high = +105.0°C, crit = +105.0°C) Core 0: +44.0°C (high = +105.0°C, crit = +105.0°C) Core 1: +44.0°C (high = +105.0°C, crit = +105.0°C)
Sometimes the temperature goes up as high as 57-60°C and I couldn't keep it on my lap anymore. I have to set it on a table or move to an air conditioned room. Is there any problem with the drivers or power management settings? Because I just moved from windows to linux and it's been very good except for this heating issue.
