Linux and Alienware 18

Do you have hardware monitoring of any kind for Windows and for Linux?

My M17 seems to run HOTTER in 10.04 LTS, that in W7 RTM. (at least I think so, since the fans are running way more with 10.04 booted)

Should be the other way around...

What video gpu are you using,im using a Nvidia chipset and i use the nvidia control panel to monitor the temp in linux

for windows there are apps availiable for temp even from nvidia themselves.

ATI M R HD 3870 chip(s). Is that a problematic chipset?

Found a few web posts hinting that that could be the problem with running Linux on AW- not using correct driver module for graphics [FGLRX]...

You thinking the same thing there NY???

Haven't found anything besides.....................

i dont think you need to worry,my other laptop runs an ati chipset in linux and and its fine.
and no ATI M R HD 3870 is not a bad chipset,for the price we pay for AW they wont build crap.:D
