Someone knows if the issue is already reported and aknowledged from Nvidia devs? User Wednesday October 8, at 5: Not sure which model laptop you are having a problem with, but for the XPS M it seems that updating the BIOS to at least version A12 A13 is the latest version at this time cures the intermittent fan problem.

nVidia 177.80 Released!
If there is a newer one somewhere please let me know. Having just upgraded to Ubuntu 8. Dimitrios, Sorry for the poor explanation Fan’s silent, GPU temprature is low. Upgrading from previous versions of the Nvidia driver to I can confirm Giles’ solution. Since then, the problem is gone: I’ll attempt a full reinstall when I have time and report back.
In my case, the fan cycles between high and low a few seconds between cyclesregardless of what kind of system activity is going on.

Changed in nvidia-graphics-drivers Ubuntu: Nvidia in use, previous bios A From memory A10 was very quiet compared to A09 mine was shipped with A09but the temps were kind of scary, A11 I think was comparable to A This binary-only Linux driver also now supports graphics cards with DisplayPort interfaces.
Previously, GPU core was idling at 41 Celsius but following a recent update, it began idling at 59 Celsius with the fan coming on loudly. Following showcaser’s post, I installed nvidia-glx version Augusto augu wrote on Mine is also upgraded from Intrepid, so some stale settings lying around somewhere are a possible cause the questions which and where remains though.
Idle temps showed C with whereas with idle temps are at 51 C but fan is nearly inaudible.
Hope this information is useful. CZE – Czech Republic.
Temperature reduced to 46 Celsius by reverting to driver It also leaves you with additional noise and lower battery life. Not sure which model laptop you are having a problem with, but for the XPS M it seems that updating the BIOS to at least version A12 A13 is 1177.80 latest version at this time cures the intermittent fan problem.
Thanks for the suggestions.

Switching to nvidia version fixed the problem. Reloaded the repos and saw the ubuntu2 driver. The GPU temp was 60, and the cores where 38 and Latest nvidia driver for Interpid x64 makes my fan spin all the time.
