CPU temperature on Aspire 3000
Fan is unserviceable
The temperature goes up to 60° celsius in five minutes, then the computer shuts down.
Have you any solution ?

When you say the fan is unserviceable, are you sure it is broken, or do you you mean it doesn't seem to work in Puppy?

See "Acer Aspire One Fan Control for Quirky/Lupu K2.6.33.2"
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=63796

In case it's not painfully obvious: that's a temperature-control driver which is compatible only with Puppy Lucid 5.1 - 5.2.8, and older versions of Puppy Quirky.

tempicon is now my heat control
Dpup Exprimo provides it by default. Aspire 3000 now changed country, i gave it as gift to a friend wanting a computer, first he has to learn were are the wanted keys on the keyboard.
I was given an Acer Aspire 1640 by mu daughter in 2014. I must take a glance to the temperature too.

Acer Aspire 1640
This laptop could have several different processors.

If this laptop has a Pentium M processor.
Something around 60 to 70 degrees Celsius is normal in a laptop.
They are rated to go to 100 degrees.
Small heat sink and small fans cause this.

This is from the age of lap warmer laptops.

What specific sensor is giving you this temp info, could be an issue.
See if you can boot into the computer bios and see if it has a section that gives temp information.

You could double check that the speedstep is set to on demand but that is what it should be and I would expect higher temperatures without a fan if it wasn't.

Laptop Acer, when the temperature remains between 70 and 80 it can be accepted. The danger is suddent climb when processor is working hard Then i must shutdown quickly, manually, by pushing the button OFF no time to save anything. The temp icon is an alert.
I ignore when a maximum is set to, perhaps 85, and what happens when 85° reached. I prefer to escape at red zone (80)
You really smell the hot coming from under the laptop
I choose old Puppies for this computer and i install tempicon pet. If not working i install a widget with temp indicator.

You have checked for dust buildup around the fan inlet/outlet?

yes i cleaned the fan room, and that get a great improve in cooling..
The critical period are when a process run a long time, as uploading a video. Or loading pictures.
However, i like these laptops. Not sure that we can play Puppy so well with computers 'Windows 10, 11,...

Scaling cpu seems a nice idea.. efficient. I never used it before.
Medor our french expert just told me it was an evidence to use it on computers with cooling trouble.
Further information asked here, en français

I feel sure I've mentioned it since I had an overheating problem with the machine I'm using now.

burn_it, no doubt about that. don't feel accused . Everybody knows the CPU scaling, told me Medor, excepted Pelo, the Linux ignorant unnameable person.
Well, it's a really efficient process.
Something i was surprised with is that Puppies have different temperature at use. Dpup wheezy gets hot even in my new laptop, where everything works well (fan cooling ok).
That would mean that on old laptop An Puppy Linux user should choose carefully the version, taking in account this trouble. DPUP Squeeze was my choice. Dpup wheezy was just for a try
PS : tempicon become red-coloured at 80°

I didn't (smile)
Have you checked what tasks are running and what percantage of the CPU power they are using in those that run hot.
In most is is a BIOS function that controls it, but some OSs override the BIOS and grab/use 100 percent whether they need/use it or not.
Games seem to be the biggest culprit at grabbing unneeded CPU cycles (faster response times).
