    laptop heat problem

    i have an acer aspire 5735z laptop running linux (ubuntu 10.1). when it had vista (i hate windows other that XP) and was only a few months old, it would get hot as hell. even if it was upside down, in a windowsill, and just turned on, it would get very hot (almost burning to the touch) in about 5 mins. what the hell is wrong.

    Have you tried checking the TaskMan?
    People that buy OEM systems think Linux was a Charlie Brown character, a registry is something you see at target to buy shower gifts, RAM is a Dodge truck and a hard drive is DC at rush hour.

    I.M.O.G.: I'm sorry to inform you that your sig violates forum rules. Due to obscene, and frankly ugly, choices of colors you must change this. I suggest brown and orange perhaps.

    Some people need that info. Coulda meant check it for extra processes, unknown processes, etc.

    Sounds like the Hindenbook has a challenger!

    I got a laptop from a femate that was reaching 70 degrees idle. I managed to break it when trying to re-solder the power connections back on (solder went everywhere ) but I replaced the TIM on the CPU. Got the temps down to 60-63 idle. I dared not prime it.

    So yeh, you could replace the TIM. It's the same as replacing it with a desktop computer (unless I've been doing it wrong all these years or unless there's some kinda exception).
    Sound setup:
    Amp: Cambridge Audio Azur 340A SE
    Speakers: Wharfedale 10.2's
    Sound Card: Asus D2X


    Computer:
    q9550 @ 3.8GHz
    GTX460 @ stock
