Recently i'm migrated from Ubuntu to fedora 18,and all i'm saying that it's a great experience on it. but I'm facing a little difficult situation here,as my HP Pavilion G4-2049TX Laptop with a gpu ATI Radeon 7670M and Core i5 (3rd Generation) goes overheated,(too hot to put on the lap) despite the fact that no heavy task is going on(only a few terminals and a browser)and the drivers for gpu isn't installed (only the integrated graphics drives Intel HD Graphics 4000 is currently working).As my previous experience with Ubuntu I never faced this type of overheating problem.Is there any solution available ,as i'm pretty sure that it's not the laptop's hardware problem.thanks in advance :)

The problem most certainly is that you need to install the drivers for the gpu, for the second graphic card. That should reduce the overheat problem.

After installing the plugin choose the Set profile to “low” option.
