Ubuntu: Nvidia GeForce 750M Getting really hot on Ubuntu 14.04


I already tryed lots of "solutions", none worked, i already tryed to install a new version on nvidia, right now i'm using 331. Even when i'm doing nothing that should make my pc hot it still does. When it was windows i played games on high resolution and my nvidia gpu core didnt got that hot.. Sorry bad english


According to the Geforce forums: https://forums.geforce.com/default/topic/351453/geforce-basics/gpu-temperature-what-is-good-/post/2529566/#2529566 it is not extremely hot.

Nevertheless there might be something wrong with a fan. If you're worried you can probably have your computer checked in a computershop.

You might try software called tlp to reduce overheating. It apperas to do a good job with the default settings. To install it do the following:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:linrunner/tlp
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install tlp tlp-rdw
sudo tlp start


if your fan is not coming on, make sure all your sensors are recognized:

sudo apt-get update  sudo apt-get install acpi lm-sensors  sudo sensors  

follow the prompts to detect sensors
