Compaq Evo N610 on Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid Lynx)

   I upgraded to Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid Lynx) on launch day. I quickly noticed that my laptop (Compaq Evo N610c) was running very hot. I mean never having children, melting flesh hot. I had a spare laptop cooler so I started using that for a little while. It would then start to slow the computer down drastically. Not content with leaving well enough alone, I found out the issue.
