(Solved)Fan runs all the time

Postby boarder428 » Sun Apr 14, 2013 2:33 pm

My fan runs all the time, full speed. I googled it and seems like this is a known problem for the hp pavillion dv7 series notebooks. everything I read states it has to do with the graphics card and not using the proprietary graphics drivers. I seem to be having a hard time locating the AMD catalyst linux drivers for my system. Can anyone help out? It's a HP Pavillion DV7-1135NR note book with a Radeon HD 3200 Graphics card!

Thanks I'll give these a try. I don't know why I couldn't find them myself, is there a special way to find Linux drivers on AMD's website?

WOW! Thanks, that's a very exhaustive procedure. Any easier way around it?

EDIT: So I'm trying to figure out the correct path to take here? My card is listed as one that is supported by Ubuntu.
I copied this off the ask ubuntu link supplied above.

The following Instructions below explain how install the latest ATI Catalyst Video driver of Ubuntu 12.04 LTS Precise
Installing the AMD/ATI Catalyst Drivers for 12.04 LTS
Tested: v12.4, v12.6, v12.8
Important Information and Preparation

Only use these instructions if you have opted NOT to use the Official Ubuntu Binaries.

If you wish to use the official Ubuntu Binaries or want to install the latest ATI Catalyst Video driver for previous versions of Ubuntu, navigate to the answer of this question and follow the instructions.

Before deciding, check if Ubuntu supports your video card here.

If you are currently using the official Ubuntu binaries and want to
install the latest ATI Catalyst Video driver there is a prerequisite to purge some files. Before proceeding with these instructions. You can Skip the step to purge if you have a fresh install of Ubuntu 12.04

It is very thorough and may look exausting, but it covers everything. ;) And once you get the hang of installing, it will take minutes to complete...
