Title: Laptop fans dont stop in 6.0 Light
Post by: wavfreak on February 26, 2009, 01:26:27 am
Hi!

After reading the other similar topic on the forum and realizing it didnt cover my issue, i decided to create yet another post on unstoppable fans.

My Armada 1700 266MHz has 64Mb and a 4Gb HD, so it's a small, old system.

I've been using 5.9 Light and did managed to stop the fans with the acpi=off although is also compromised
the powerdown sligthly, for it needed an extra step.

Yesterday i tryed the 6.0 Light and the fan problem surfaced again, only this time acpi=off does not help,
i even uninstalled acpi deamon without results.

Anyone has a clue?
Thankx in advance  :)
