I have installed manjaro a few weeks ago on a new partition. It worked very well at the beggining but after a day weeks it started getting very slow, and I couldnt play any games after - the CPU was at high capacity, it was very slow/ low FPS on a (reasonably heavy) browser game, and the temperature was high (reaching 100degrees celsius by the monitor).
THis is an old laptop but it used to run very well. 6GB ram, good intel graphics. It is an intel i5 which used to run perfectly well some games [i used to use elementary os].
After i installed manjaro, it gets 1) very hot (temperature reaching 100c when running a heavy browser game), 2) very slow, and 3)CPU at high capacity.
I have read so much about all kinds of possible solutions dealing with cooling fans on my laptop (supposedly thats the issue? [specially because heat+i cant hear the cooling fan work]), but absolutely nothing works.
I have tried changing kernels (installing it, on boot screen changing the one Im going to use, etc.), didnt work.
I have tried TLP, POWERTOP, LMSENSORS, PWMCPONFIG, everything.
At PWMCONFIG, i reach a point where it says: “/usr/sbin/pwmconfig: There are no pwm-capable sensor modules installed”. I have tried a possible solution (" fancontrol-under-ubuntu-14-04-resolving-usrsbinpwmconfig-there-are-no-pwm-capable-sensor-modules-installed "), didnt work to.
MY elementary os (in the another partition) got slow as well after this issue arrived.
I have tried to fix it in elementary os, but got nothing new too.
Is it due to manjaro not ‘‘geting my cooler to work’’?
COuld it be a coincidental hardware issue? (for instance, laptop fan suddenly not working…?)
When I typed “inxi -F -x -G -xx -S”, it said: Sensors:
System Temperatures: cpu: 62.0 C mobo: N/A
Fan Speeds (RPM): N/A
PS: I cant see if it works, I dont know how to open a laptop and I think this is not a likely scenario.
PS: right now, after i tried to configure TLP, it runs at around 50-66 with daily use (browser, notepad, etc.). I think it solved a little bit of the heat issue (it was higher on average), but i just dont see this as a solution. It feels like im just trying to make my laptop slow down, when I think there’s an issue and I want to try to solve this issue.
I cannot play anymore in this laptop, and If i try to run a game, it gets to 80-100 degrees.
