Dell Studio laptop overheats in Windows Vista but not while running Ubuntu, why? Answered
My Dell Studio laptop turns off without any warning and when I restart the computer it complains of a problem caused by overheating. It only happens when I am running Windows Vista but it does not happen when I am running Ubuntu in the same machine. It does not seem to be a BIOS problem. I reinstalled Windows Vista and it keeps doing the same thing. The fan runs full speed first before the machine shuts off. I must have gremlins in my computer that hate Microsoft! It is the truth people I am not making this stuff! Can it be a corrupted thermal driver or a BIOS update that went wrong? I upgraded the BIOS to A6. Thank you very much for your help!
