I'm windows user for many years, however, I would like to switch to a linux distro(Mint probably) that won't kill my CPU.
My problem is that no matter if I install(Mint or Ubuntu) it on hardware or in a virtual environment(VMWare) it will keep my CPU fans spinning about 99% of the time at max RPM, even when it's idle, tho' after some period of being idle, it will spin at lower RPM, as soon as I log back in, it goes at full speed ahead.
I haven't done any system changes(not that I'm aware) that could cause this issue, even after a clean install the issue persists.
My question is: Is there any way that I can fix this, could it be some issue regarding my hardware(it is only about 1.5 years old...)?
The latest installs are:
- Mint Lisa
- Ubuntu 10.04
