Does running

Code: [Select]
sudo sensors-detect
and answering Y to all questions .. then once finished rebooting.

Did that make any difference ?


Otherwise you're probably going to need to look into installing and configuring a program called fancontrol

searching the forum with fan control, turned up this thread that may be helpful https://forum.peppermintos.com/index.php/topic,8708.0.html

I don't know if this will work or not, but I found these videos on YouTube How to install AMD drivers in Ubuntu 18.04 which PM 10 is.  ;)

Not only is Peppermint an addictive OS to use.
But so is this Forum :)
