Today I noticed that my CPU fan is turning on and off very frequently (on and off at an interval of 20 seconds). I installed an app which shows me the current hdd temperature. When I switch on my PC, it shows 54 degrees but within half an hour it is at 66! I disabled the 3D graphics, switched off the computer and let it cool down. Now half an hour has passed and T is 62. Is this temperature normal for a Linux machine ?
What might be causing the problem ? There is no AC in the room...I don't want my hard drive to melt
EDIT: Ah! its 64 now!! I'm going.
