Hello.

My laptop seems to get quite hot during use and the fan doesn't seem to kick in as it used to when I ran Windows.

I've googled the problem and it seems quite a common problem with Linux. I'm hoping some one here can help me out.

I have an HP DV6 Pavilion. The fan is OK as if I shut down Linux, reboot, and break into the BIOS, the fan starts up as it used to in Windows and attempts to cool things down.

Thanks for any help.

Can you please attach a system report to your next post, Menu > System > Create System Report. Thank you.

I've tried to post the report a few times and I keep getting a server error. I've attached it ..... hopefully.

Thanks for helping. Now I'm not in a noisey server room, I can hear my fan spinning. But earlier today, the fan wasn't speeding up as much as it would under Windows previously.

Thanks for any help.

In that case, use it a bit tonight at home in a quiet environment, and let us know how you get on.

Well the fan is being spun up and down which is great, but it kicks in a bit later than what I'm used to. Is there any way settings for the fan can be altered? For example, is it possible to have the fan speed up at 60c instead of 80c etc etc? Is there a config file that can be altered??

Thanks again.
