Dell Inspiron n5010 laptop overheat
« on: March 28, 2012, 06:31:26 PM »
Hi  ;D

I have dell inspiron n5010 laptop  with core i5 & ATI mobility radeon 5470 hd graphics card.

when i start Tinycore it overheats after just 5 minuts & then auto shutdown.

here is lsmod output:

ntfs                   69632  1

battery                12288  0
ac                     12288  0

Now i google & found that its issue with linux kernel's ASPM(Active state power management) feature & suggested to use pcie_aspm=force. i used it with tinycore but nothing changed.

Some saying that its issue with opensource radeon driver , some saying issue of cloesed source drives...,some say this issue will be fixed in 3.1, 3.2 kernel update..

Now what to do?

lm-sensors show high temperature after just 5 min of booting.. & yes this is my grub entry

menuentry "Tinycore Linux -- Fix recursive fault"
{
   insmod ntfs
   set root='(hd0,2)'
              linux /tinycore/boot/vmlinuz quiet  tce desktop=xfce4 maxcpus=1 pcie_aspm=force
   initrd /tinycore/boot/core.gz
}

I know this post is very old....
 the problem is ati card ( I have 4650 with same problem ) ... you need the drivers ...
