http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi I have a dell XPS L502 x laptop with Nvidia GT 540 m 2 GB graphic card. Initially I was having heat up issues with fan constantly running . So i installed bumblebee to resolve the problem .Now my laptop is working fine and there are no heating issues. What I want to ask is that if I run any application using "optirun" command to enable my graphics card the graphic card will come to action and the machine will start to get heat with fan constantly running.I use VLC to run the HD movied on both Ubuntu as well as windows 7.with the same movie the quality is much better in windows 7 (Hardware)
