Ubuntu :: 10.10 - Samsung R530 Laptop Extremely High Temperature
Mar 11, 2011
My Samsung R530 laptop is over heating, I believe it is the fan because I can't feel it working at all. When it over heats it just shutsdown. A few times it is came up with a warning while shutting down for a split second saying a extremely high temperature and shutting down seconds later. I am running Ubuntu 10.10 with Nvidia Geforce with Cuda. I have tried reinstalling Ubuntu, installing Fedora... Nothing I have tried has worked.
Ever since I installed ubuntu 10.10, my laptop is shutting down due to high temperature within 15-20 mins. It makes my laptop literally unusable. Had posted the issue, got some advise but the issue didn't get resolved, hence posting again.
Below is previous post. [url]
Is there any tool or way by which I can check if it's a hardware issue.
I bought a new Samsung R530 laptop, which is a 64bit, a few months ago and have been struggling to get the thing working properly since.I removed W7 and install Ubuntu 10.4, which I found was freezing periodically for five to ten minutes, then I installed 10.10 beta, finding that this too kept 'sticking'.I had hoped that the full release would have fixed the issues, but this too was slow, the mouse froze constantly and any video I played would freeze up with sound playing normally in the background.I have followed some of the threads here and none of these things have worked for me.
On my HP netbook, my old Acer laptop and my PC, everything works fine!!!I have since installed an older copy of Ubuntu 9.10 and this seems to be working fine. No 'sticking' mouse, no system locks.Its fast and smooth, just what I have come to love about linux.What has happened to the new versions of Ubuntu?
I have a notebook with AMD Athlon 64 QL-62 2 cores CPU. Normally the temperature is 50-52 Celsius in idle but with Ubuntu 10.04 beta 2 idle temp is 60 Celsius. /proc/cpuinfo shows both cores on 1GHz which is good but still temp is higher than usual. I tried to find solution using Google but I didn't find anything.
If I install Linux Mint 8 or Open Suse , temperature is 48 as windows mostly.If I install any other distro, temperature goes to 80-85 and fan is always On.Ive a laptop dell just bought it, dell studio 15, 4ghz ram dual core etc, a monster for linux but ive this problem, kinda annoying when you wanna have something silent and that doesnt become a furnace.
I have installed the ubuntu 10.04 beta 2. I have notice that it has high temperature. I have try the "top" in terminal. There are no high usage of CPU and Memory. but still get high temperature. same in karmic 9.1. I have been using this ubuntu 10.04 beta2 fresh install just today. I did not do anything or install anything. It gets hot easily after few minutes. It was installed properly and no problem.
2nd problem is I try to reboot then i see the wifi signal and it detects my wifi and also my accesspoint. so I try to connect. I was connected to my accesspoint. My accesspoint is near my side. then I click firefox to test the connection. but no luck. cannot display page. maybe the internet was block even i was connected to my accesspoint. I try to check the signal then I saw (88%).
cpu temp in Suse 11.2 is over than 55 C (sysem don not have any task) , but in windows 7 temp is 42 C in fedora is 46 C I have new fresh install of suse 11.2 my cpu is : AMD Phenom(tm) II X2 550 Processor what my system working warm ?
On my linux distro (arch 64bit, kernel .38) temperatures are stuck @ 60 �C in idle!Temperatures were measured by lm_sensors.Ubuntu confirms the issue.My archlinux setup is new; I added these modules after installing cpufrequtils: powernow-k8 for cpu scaling ondemand governor enabled and it is the default governor.cpu scaling is working.No proprietary video driver installed. Using xf86-video-ati/radeon
My suppositions: a) undervolting not supported/bug/what everelse? b) proprietary drivers needed?? maybe the high thermal power is produced by GPU and not from CPU?
However, I would like to ask if anyone else is experiencing Higher than normal CPU usage with openSuSE 11.4 PR?? My system, which is probably similar to others, increases the air flow with the fan on the CPU when it is working hard. Mine gets rather noisy. (don't have it on the floor, but right next to me) This fan speed increase has been lots more prevalent in the newest version of openSuSE.
Have also used 'top' and it looks like xorg is one of the biggest hogs. However, when I use VMware it goes into hyper drive a lot.
On my lenovo g560 i have Intel core i3-330m, i have both debian squeeze and windows 7 installed on my laptop.Today i noticed that while playing music (amarok) and playing a flash game (google chrome, game - tetris, lol (: ) the processor core temperature was around 70-71deg celsius.I restarted and booted windows 7, doing the same thing (music and tetris) the processor temperature is aournd 54-55deg celsius.Can anyone explain why the high temperature when running debian?
I'm using Ubuntu 10.10, with a wireless HP j4680. That prints on occassion. I've tricked it once by creating a new printer System/Admin/printers, setting the "new" printer to default then deleting the old printer. Not working that way this time. I've search the old forums, a lot of activity in 2007-2008 but nothing since.
Is there a way to defeat HP's efforts to force it's customers to purchase the extremely high, close to 50.00 dollars in my area.
Where does one look in terms of diagnostics after a system lockup and hard reset? For example, one of my computers, running Fedora 14 i686, has taken to locking up quite a bit lately. My only way out is a hard reset. Now, once the thing is booted back up I'd like to try to figure out where the problem lies. Where do I look? Will any of the log files reveal anything relevant to me? If so, what sort of things would I be looking for. Keywords?
This same box also locked up when I had Fedora 14 x86_64 installed. I had read that there were some issues with the newer 64 bit kernels that were causing lockups and / or extremely high loads. This is why I switched back to the 32 bit version, 2 days ago to be exact. The box gets little use. It's a toy really and not my main "daily use" computer. It is, however, running folding@home. Maybe that's where the problem is. About 15 minutes ago I called home and had my wife reset the box, then I logged in from work and stopped the folding service. I'll have to see if it locks up without folding running. Folding was running on this box when I had the 64 bit version installed also.
I have a firewall / proxy that has an extremely high load, but I can't figure out what's using it. No real cpu usage, the disks are sleeping except for a little log activity, it's on gigabit ethernet and not close to maxing out... Command link stuff runs fast, nothing seems slow, yet the load is sky-high. IME this kind of load is associated with a lot of disk I/O, but that's not the case here. What could be causing this, what else factors into the load?

For some reason,Ubuntu tends to use my CPU quite a lot.This cause my laptop to get really hot.Sometimes it even gets to the point when it automatically shuts down because of the CPU's temperature.Is there some sort of program or application to fix this?
My laptop is frequently shutting down while using Google Earth 126.96.36.1991-r0. It uses 100% CPU, but only on one CPU core, and the problem happens at random.
I don't believe it is related to the CPU temperature, because I created a script that saves the current temperature every two seconds, so when the system shuts down I can see the last, and the highest I got from all the times was 62 °C, while the average from all the times it shut down was 57 °C from /sys/devices/platform/coretemp.0/hwmon/hwmon1/temp*_input and 51 °C from /sys/devices/virtual/thermal/thermal_zone0/temp and /sys/devices/virtual/hwmon/hwmon0/temp1_input. From my research, I understand that coretemp-0 is the temperature of the CPU itself, while the others (acpitz-virtual-0) are from underneath the base of the CPU.
The files under /sys and the command `sensors' tell me that only 80° would trigger a shutdown. I bought this laptop in 2013, and I have never seen it go beyond 6-°C:
I have done a simple stress test by running `cat /dev/zero >/dev/null' on 8 terminals, together with `glxgears' and `supertuxkart' for half an hour, and my system did not shutdown, neither the temperature went beyond 6-°C. The HD temperature lives around 42 °C, according to `sudo smartctl -l scttemp /dev/sda'.
I've got the latest CENTOS v5.5 (disk 1 of 2) x86_64 that I've fully installed on a brand new Dell Inspiron 1749 laptop (less than 30 days old). I specifically tested the media at the beginning of the install, and it was good. I'd also verified the md5sum before burning it to disc. During installation from the DVD the X Windows GUI won't appear brightly lit and easliy viewable, the screen remains (seemingly -- more on this in a moment) blank. I experienced this when hitting enter at the install boot prompt. After a subsequent text-based install (which went fine), from runlevel 3, I ensured the X Windows group was fully installed, and tried "startx". Same blank (dim!) screen behavior.
Now the seemingly blank screen has a weird twist. In changing the light in my work room (for other reasons) I noticed that there was a dim, barely visible X desktop on the screen. It is extremely faint, most definitely unusable, cannot see anything clearly enough to make out setting or try to change anything. Unable to see any mouse movement, etc... Suprisingly, a flashlight helps to make out bits and pieces, though nowhere near enough to be usable. Killing X by any method doesn't bring back the brightness, though the console is usable again as such (i.e. reboot works). I've tried the <Ctrl><Alt><F2> and the like as part of the troubleshooting, it works funcionally, but doesn't return the (normal?) screen brightness along the way.
The system came from Dell with Micro$loth Windoze 7 x64 bit and operated normal (well, as normal as Windoze can). When system-config-display is ran from the commandline, the screen clears and brings up that utility. I can point a flashlight at the screen and see some elements of what looks like a functional/working utility. I cannot visually discern the mouse to try and select anything. I've floated around the screen a lot, but haven't seen anything I can leverage to make a change to the screen/monitor being used. I believe the video is an integrated (into the CPU) graphics chip/card/whatever.
I was given a Samsung SMB 2330 (TFT) monitor for Christmas. It is pretty nice and nice and big. Here is the problem: when I connect it to my laptop (Dell XPS M1530 with nVidia GeForce 8600M) I can use the Nvidia Settings Manager to view and use both screens, but on the Samsung screen there are lighter colored blurry lines that race up and down. You don't see this so much on lighter windows, but any darker color shows them clearly. This is a constant whether I set the refresh rate on "auto" or 60 kH (which is what the manufacturer says it should be).I can't for the life of me figure out how to get rid of this problem. I am fair to middling on my Linux experience, but this is the first time I have wrestled with dual monitors and I'd really appreciate any pointers The screen is great, but the flicker is distracting to say the least.
I've just installed 10.04 on a Samsung RV511 laptop. No problems and much, much better than the Windows 7 it came with. But I do have just a little niggle. I can disable the touchpad with 'modprobe -r psmouse' after I've logged in, but I would like this to happen automatically at startup. I've tried putting the above code in the home folder .bashrc, but I get this error message: FATAL: Error removing psmouse (/lib/modules/2.6.32-31-generic/kernel/drivers/input/mouse/psmouse.ko): Operation not permitted Do I need to write a bash script file? Or how else can I get the code to run as I want?
I just bought a samsung r580 laptop. this is the first time i've ever owned a laptop. I have owned a pc with ubuntu 8.04 installed on it and the internet worked trouble free. Now I have windows 7 and ubuntu 9.10 dual booted on my samsung r580. I used wubi to install and the internet works fine in windows but will not work in ubuntu. I have been trying to get this to work for about 5 hours now
I just upgraded from Ubuntu 10.10 (64 bit) from Ubuntu 10.04 (64 bit) on my Samsung R580 laptop [URL] So far all my hardware seems to be working except the laptop's integrated camera. In 10.04 the camera worked and I could use the program "Cheese" to take photos and videos with the camera. In 10.10 I installed Cheese and tried to use my laptop's camera but it didn't work. I installed all the available updates for 10.10 but still the camera wouldn't work. The only information about the camera on the laptop's webpage is that it is a 1.3 MP Web Camera.
I've recently installed ubuntu 10.10 32 bit on an external HDD in order to use it as a portable operating system. An issue I have is when running on my laptop (Samsung R580) the wireless connection drops out however the nm-applet still shows it's connected. If I disconnect and reconnect it keeps asking for the access password. The wireless card on the laptop is the RTL8192E (not SE!). I have used the install on a couple of other machines with different wireless cards and no problems. Linux Kernel version is 2.6.35-22-generic. I have searched around and see that the drivers are in early development. If I tried installing the windows driver via ndiswrapper would this affect the portability of the operating system?
I have just purchased a Samsung Nexsus S mobile phone. I am trying to download music onto it through my laptop using Ubuntu 11.04. I cannot seem to get anywhere. I have tried the Nexsus S forums but they tell me to ask here as they are not converse with the Ubuntu software.
Just put a fresh clean copy of Lucid on the laptop. I have noticed this for a while on the otherr versions and distros also, and finally started looking at. My laptop runs, contantly.The fan seems to be always running. I don't have more the a couple of applications at time, I don't use it for work, so nothing extensive. Web browsing, music, email, photos. End user stuff. So I added a heat application in the panel just to see what was happening. I can get the temp down to around 150F-ish if I am not even looking at the laptop. But, open anything and start workingand I am sitting arround 183F-185F. Is this normal? I am just getting toired of having such a hot laptop on my lap, I even have a pad under it so the air can circulate witht the fan, but, a constant running fan is what I have and the heat can be felt through the pad if I am sitting for a couple of hours.
I've recently installed Karmic on my new machine with the following specs;

I'm looking to install some sort of temperature monitoring for my cpu and have had luck using either lm-sensors or acpi. With lm sensors, I've followed the various how to's on the forum and am still coming back with nothing. Trying to add hardware monitoring to panel brings up a 'no sensors found!' error, and x-sensors just starts up with a blank screen.
'sensors' in terminal spits back this - Code: lou@lou-quad:~$ sensors No sensors found! Make sure you loaded all the kernel drivers you need. Try sensors-detect to find out which these are. lou@lou-quad:~$
I've added the relevant lines into etc/modules as per the last question during configuration but still no joy. I've just run 'sensors-detect and had a gander at the output, and I'm wondering if its as simple as no one has written a driver for my mobo yet.
So I would like to check out my cpu temperature in function of time. I've followed [URL]...gpu-en-ubuntu/ but unfortunately in the description it was for the old version of Ubuntu and despite having downloaded the program, I simply can't add it in the taskbar. I did in a terminal: sudo apt-get install sensors-applet. Then I installed a few remaining packets from synaptic. Now how do I run the program?
