Linux Hardware Problems

Find out information about the graphic hardware/driver in use (2011-10-31)

lspci | grep VGA

In my case this did not help, it just gave me information about the hardware, not the driver stack in use.

So I also checked the logs

 cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep /usr/lib/xorg/modules/

I have an integrated intel HD3000 graphics but the power consumption of the notebook is very bad. The fan is constantly running. The temperature is given by

Adapter: Virtual device
temp1:        +63.0°C  (crit = +120.0°C)
temp2:        +47.0°C  (crit = +120.0°C)

Adapter: ISA adapter
Physical id 0:  +64.0°C  (high = +86.0°C, crit = +100.0°C)
Core 0:         +62.0°C  (high = +86.0°C, crit = +100.0°C)
Core 1:         +60.0°C  (high = +86.0°C, crit = +100.0°C)

So I tried

sudo apt-get –reinstall install xserver-xorg-video-intel

this but it did not help.
