I've used other Linux distros on my Thinkpad but non had this overheating problem when I using it. I've W10 on my machine too, but it's always cool. I've just installed tlp, and even tp_smapi (even it doesn't include L-series). Has anyone encountered the same problem with a Thinkpad? Any help is greatly appreciated.

  • May I kindly ask you to disable Secure Boot and Trusted Platform Module in BIOS, please?
