overheating problem in in dell n5010 (p6100)


hallo i have a 11.04 classic gnome (no effects)

ubuntu installation with the kernel


and by the first second i am in the desktop

the readings of the panel hardware temperature indicators are:

cpu 70-72

gpu 80-82

hard disk 56

with vlc open or banshee it easily goes at 80+ (the acpi says 88 is critical :S)

i have tried ubuntu, kubuntu, mint and the problem remains...

i really want to have ubuntu there's no better os for me,

but this overheating problem drives me crazy!!

i tried the espm patch by phoronix and it didn't work...

can you help me??

thank you...

maybe try 64-bit??

should i go back to 10.04???

i would but i hesitate because if i remember well, the ubuntu one client was buggy and i doubt it will recognize my wireless...

    I run "jupiter" on my EEEpc and Dell XPS 13. It has cooled down the running temperatures and extended battery life. Right now I have it running with Fedora 15 KDE, but, I'd imagine it would work with any modern Linux distro. Give it a shot and see how it works for you. http://www.jupiterapplet.org/
