Thread: My laptop overheats

  1. #1

    Default My laptop overheats

    Hello, I have installed OS 11.4 in my laptop and I cant keep my cpus temperature below 72, this is what i've tried:
    Bought a coolpad
    Set my cpus governors on powersave
    Installed and tried powertop
    Installed the sensors package

    Code:
    ariel@linux-xo20:~> sensors
    acpitz-virtual-0
    Adapter: Virtual device
    temp1:       +60.0C                                    
    temp2:       +26.8C                                    
    
    coretemp-isa-0000
    Adapter: ISA adapter
    Core 0:      +72.0C  (high = +100.0C, crit = +100.0C)  
    
    coretemp-isa-0001
    Adapter: ISA adapter
    Core 1:      +73.0C  (high = +100.0C, crit = +100.0C)
    My only other reference is Windows XP, there my temperature is between 58 and 63 using a powersave governor. My only experience before this is Ubuntu on a desktop pc, I don't really know what to do.

    My laptop is a Commodore KE-8350MB with an Intel Core 2 Duo T5800 and 2gb of ram

    Any info is appreciated

    Maybe a application it is. Try ALT+F2 and see which has maximum using.

    You mean "Ctrl+Esc"?
    My bet is on kmix, if he's using KDE :-)

    The default setting for ALT+F2 in KDE is to run krunner not the process
    monitor.

    Alt+F2 on my KDE machine pops up the run command line...just like it did
    in openSUSE 10.x and all other 11.x..

    but, maybe it is different in Greece, i do not know..

    Of course from that you can run the monitor by clicking on the tiny little icon left of the command line. But that should be explained to the OP. Or simply press CTRL+ESC.
    Always nice to add a few mouse clicks for the same effect.

    WOW, i never saw THAT before!!

    it is kinda like top or htop, but grossly dumbed-down and not as
    informative..

    let me guess, does Win7 have a similar keystroke to a shout a little
    multi-faceted application to life with tiny icons to launch a system
    monitor, etc?

    My problem is that I have 72 with only xorg taking tops 4%-10% of the processor according to ksysguard.

    If I do start using programs it goes to 80 and more.
