I am having Acer 5920 (64bit ,intel mobile express 965 chipset family) laptop.
I have been using ubuntu 8.04 64bit on it for a while.Even internet browsing
makes the temprature of laptop to shoot to above 50C.I have tried configuring it a lot(using pwmconfig , gkrellm ...).
But they either fail installing successfully or fail to control my fan speed.
Now I am looking for a distro which probably can control my fan speed.
I am even ready to use a 32 bit version OS.
(Even though I am not able to control my fan speed while using windows xp I always get a feel that temperature of laptop get "attracted" to 40C while using XP)
