I am having the same problem with an Acer Aspire 3620 on 8.04.

Critical point is either 80 or 85C. And it reaches that quite easily with any graphics intensive program. 10 minutes of tuxcart and it shuts down.

Does compiling a new kernel from kernel.org solve the problem?

This is the first time ive ever put ubuntu (or linux for that matter) on a laptop. My girlfriend prefers linux and wanted me to get rid of windows, which i gladly did. But now her laptops overheating. She never had any problems in windows. I would like to find a solution so that i don't have to go back to windows.
