Life of newbie is really hard...
Have encountered interesting problem - help is needed.
Yesterday I have installed Fedora 9 to my laptop (Asus L5F). After about 20 minutes of work I black screen appears with message like "threshold of 85 degrees, need to shutdown". Then PC really turns off. Looks like CPU is overheated.
WinXP works fine. Special options like temperature control at BIOS are unavailable.
Have somebody encountered similar problem? Maybe some special drivers are needed for motherboard - it's not a usual PC...
