http://askubuntu.com – I had this excess power consumption issue on my Dell laptop with the following configuration. > Video Card : AMD Radeon™ HD 6470M - 1GB (For ICC) > > RAM : 6GB (1 X 2GB + 1 X 4GB) 2 DIMM DDR3 1333Mhz > > OS : 64 bit Ubuntu 11.10 Having learnt on forums that it was a kernel bug, I downgraded my kernel from 3.0 to 2.6.37. This had tremendously reduced the power consumption from a whooping 32 W to 16 W. Strangely I find that it even runs faster. The only issue I am having trouble with is the screen resolution. It is very low and looks very very bad. Is there any way to fix t (HowTos)
