Bug Description


since latest Gutsy updates (14th october) CPU fan of my Dell 6400 (one of those shipped with ubuntu in Europe. similar to the E1505) is really noisy. I haven't had that problem with Gutsy-Beta or Feisty. Now usually five minutes after startup the fan goes to 100% loundness. I haven't heard my CPU fan before the latest updates.

Listening to this issue right now on a Dell 6000 recently upgraded to Gutsy. CPU usage is at 0% and fan has been mowing the lawn for over an hour now. This didn't happen under feisty. It's possible that the fan just doesn't shut off once it gets excited.

It happens with my old Asus L3000D as well. The fan is always spinning even if the cpu is idle.

Haven't noticed this again lately. Not that I think whatever caused the problem originally got fixed, but maybe it was a fluke on my machine. Will post again if it recurs.
