just installed kubuntu. yesterday i noticed my computer was very noisy. Today i found like a hundred lines like this in my log:

2006-12-06 13.03.34 computername kernel [17179699.916000] ACPI: Unable to turn cooling device [dffe3338]'on'

The noise seems to be gone now. dont know if it had anything to do with this. My guess is my cpu is trying to start the fan to my nvidia-graphiccard. I havent installed any drivers to my nvidiacard. Does anyone know whats going on? what should i do?
