High temperature
August 23, 2009 07:45PM
Hello developers and friends,

I tested the Live CD of the Elive 1.9.40 developer compiz version. I found it is a fine debian based distro with the e17 window manager. So I installed it.

But in the fine tuning procedure after hd install I have the phenomena that the system breaks with a high cpu temperature level of 105 °C (221 °F) and goes down.

I have also installed a UBUNTU based Distro with GNOME and it works without problems.

What can be the reason for this in Elive.

I use a some years old FSC Notebook Amilo A1630 with an AMD Athlon 64 3700 CPU and an ATI Mobile Radeon 9600 graphic card.

Thanks for answers an sorry for my English.

Can you post the output of the "dmesg" command in a pastebin ? (http://pastebin.com/)

Have you try to use the cpufreq module to control your cpu speed ?

Hi phoenix,

thank you for your answer.

I posted the dmesg output in pastebin (http://pastebin.com/m679c78d1).

Yes, I have tryied the cpufreq module. For my notebook it is preselected with 2,4 GHz. As trial I will reduce it to 2,0 GHz. The temperature module shows permanent 75 °C (167 °F).

Hum, it's strange...

Can you try to reduce to 800 Mhz to show if the temperature goes down ?

Hi phoenix,

I can not set cpu speed of 800 MHz, only reduce to 2,0 GHz.

The system doesn't go down until now, my notebook become warm. But the cpu temperature module shows permanent 75 °C (167 °F).

You need simply to clean the cooler of the cpu, it is full of dust and this is why goes hot, i also recommend to put a better cooler on it

I cleaned the cooler after changing the hdd. So the dust isn't the problem.
