fans always active

Postby plutus on Fri Dec 04, 2009 3:37 am

I've istalled Mint 8 on my dell e4300 laptop: everything works fine except the fans which are always active...for instance in this moment the top command gives the following:
1325 root 20 0 102m 34m 14m R 11 1.0 0:49.56 Xorg
2280 user 20 0 358m 117m 30m R 9 3.4 1:51.84 firefox
2183 user 20 0 72044 27m 7860 S 3 0.8 0:06.72 compiz.real
2537 user 20 0 40032 12m 9516 R 1 0.4 0:00.32 gnome-terminal
2556 user 20 0 2468 1180 884 R 1 0.0 0:00.19 top

and the fans are running...don't understand why

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.
