Re: Thinkpad T43 temperature issue

Thanks to everyone fo ryour suggestions.

Since AMD no longer even have the Catalyst 9.3 drivers available for installation, I've had to abandon any attempt to get Linux Mint running on this machine - back to Windows 7, I'm afraid :(

Mint ran great, but there was a small fly in the ointment - the fan wouldn't stop running, which it doesn't do with Windows 7. I successfully installed Thinkpad Fan Contro...
