[Bug 557829] Re: 1002:9613 [Toshiba Satellite L305D-S5959] overheats computer


Ubuntu 15.04 is overheating laptops. Both laptops at home powers off,
and both have different graphic adapters.

One of them was working fine under Ubuntu 14.10, is mostly new from
Toshiba, and uses Intel integrated graphics which presumably doesn't
overheat too much compared with AMD and NVIDIA ones.

Even when the CPU is set to a lower energy state and thermald is
installed, the problem still persist. After reading various questions
about this issue in AskUbuntu.com I greatly suspect this is a major
issue with plenty of laptops.

  1002:9613 [Toshiba Satellite L305D-S5959] overheats computer

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: xserver-xorg-video-ati

  Lucid Lynx 10.04 AMD64 Beta 1

  xserver-xorg-video-radeon 1:6.12.192-2ubuntu2
  xserver-xorg-video-ati 1:6.12.192-2ubuntu2

  AMD AthlonTM X2 Dual-Core QL-65 @ 2.1GHz (running stock speed, Cool 'n' Quiet working, cpu frequency regulation in kerenel is working, idles @ 1.05GHz but temperature still goes up)
  AMD M780V Chipset
  ATI Radeon 3100 IGP (RV610)
  720P video native support (I suppose that means hardware implemented)

  Laptop (Toshiba L305D-S5959) overheats when running open source
  driver. Idles at around 70°C at room temperature of ~22°C, have BIOS
  set to shutdown at 95°C to avoid hardware damage. Computer will shut
  itself off due to temperature under moderate load such as viewing
  flash video in Firefox on hulu.com. This has been repeated at least 3

  Running  the  proprietary fglrx driver 2:8.721-0ubuntu7 (with no other
  software changes), the computer idles  @ 45°C (20°C cooler) at room
  temperature of ~22°C. Watching video on hulu.com does not cause
  overheating issues.

  This is something that could damage computers. If it's under warranty
  but Ubuntu is found on the hard drive the manufacturer will probably
  void the warranty. I certainly don't want Ubuntu to get that kind of
