Thread: intermittent cpu temp / fan control ?

  1. #1

    Question intermittent cpu temp / fan control ?

    I noticed that my cpu temp is intermittent. It seems that every other restart my cpu temp will continually increase. I monitor the temp using gkrellm. Can anyone enlighten me or point me in a direction of where I can troubleshoot this?

    sample scenario.

    session 1 - cpu temp ranges from 57 - 60
    restart the computer
    session 2 - cpu temp starts 57 then continually increases to 90 - at this point i restart it already
    wait for cpu to cool
    restart the computer
    session 3 - cpu temp ranges from 57 - 60
    restart the computer
    session 4 - sames as session 2

    my laptop - memory 3.0gb, processor Intel® Core™2 Duo CPU T6500 @ 2.10GHz × 2, grpahics Gallium 0.4 on AMD RV710 (on windows this is reflected as ati mobility radeon 4500 series), OS 32 bit type.

    Hi,

    I searched the net and found that it is disabled at the bios. However, I was not able to see it in my advance options (see link below). Is there another way? Thanks!

    Hi,

    I still can't find an answer to my problem. I've also observed that on every other session the fan of my cpu moves or spins faster. For instance when I restart from a state that the cpu temp is getting hot and when I don't cool it long enough, when the computer boots up with my openSuSE os I can feel and hear the fan moving with more power. By the way, I also can't find how to disable my ACPI.

    Thanks
