I have an Acer Aspire V15 Nitro Black Edition VN7-592G running a dual boot Windows 10 and Kubuntu 18.04.1 LTS.
The problem below persists in both OSes.
I am noticing heating issues in the area below the keyboard.
It is not noticeable from the top, but the bottom of the laptop just under the keyboard becomes burning hot. The CPU is idling and the GPU is off. The fans also switch off due to no load.
Acer has not allowed access or has not built in any PWM capable sensors, so controlling fan speeds using Linux tools such as fancontrol and similar is impossible.
In Windows, I don't have any fan control software from Acer, except Coolboost which is always ON.
I tried Nitro Sense and Predator Sense with no luck. The applications don't show any fan rpm or CPU frequencies (since my laptop is neither a Predator nor a newer Nitro).
Does anyone have any advice?
