Post 3+ Months Ago

My laptop is an Acer Travelmate 7530G, it runs an AMC Athlon X2 64 2.1Ghz CPU, 2GB RAM and an ATI Radeon HD3470 Hybrid X2 512MB.

In Ubuntu (all versions) the temperature sensor goes up to around 99C and apparently sometimes reaches up to 109C !
The laptop itself gets very hot (as one would imagine), and the fan is on highest constantly.

But in windows this problem is not present.

Can anyone help identify/solve this problem?

Run the top command. Maybe you can see what is using all the CPU time. Also, try ps aux
