Every time I boot my new hp pavilion dv6 I get a message saying "thermal shutdown occurred ... blah blah ... things are OK now you can use the system".
Is there a way to get rid of this extremely annoying message?
Needless to say that I do not experience any real thermal shutdowns.

Thank you for your reply.
I couldn't find any links to BIOS downloads.
My laptop is:
"HP Pavilion dv6 Notebook PC"

I'd appreciate if you could post a link to BIOS download.

Thanks for your help.
I've updated the BIOS but it didn't solve the problem.
I dual-boot between Win7 and Linux and it looks like the message occurs only when the laptop was shut down in Linux.
It's as if the bios has a very tight integration with Windows; like Windows has to tell it something every time it shuts down...

Hi, noident, I also dual-boot Windows 7 and Linux, and I have exactly the same problem as you, my laptop is an HP Pavilion g4-1016tx. Updating the BIOS didn't solve the problem.
I reported a bug to the Red Hat Bugzilla:

I have the same problem on my HP Pavilion G4-1025TX. I found the default setup - Windows 7 with so much bloatware - unbearable, so I removed all partitions, and installed Linux. Now I get the thermal shutdown error. Any help to remove this would be much appreciated.

I get the message "thermal shutdown occurred" and experience thermal shutdowns.
Laptop is overheating for no explained reason and then shutting down.
Battery life is poor - less than 1 hour.
Laptop 6 months old circa.
Hopefully this can be fixed under warranty - can't remember if warrnty came as standard.
