RE: Inspiron 15-3521 DELL OEM Ubuntu image

I know I'm late to the party but I thought I'd share what I learned when I had this fan problem.  The source code for the drivers that control the speed of the fans relative to the temperature readings of the card is proprietary therefor the open source drivers do not have this so that leaves the only safe option of running at full speed all the time.  I was able to find some guides to build some debian installers for the proprietary catalyst drivers and the difference was huge.  AMD oughta be ashamed, I wonder how many people out there have machines sounding like ROFL copters so AMD can protect its benchmark scores.

Is this issue resolved?

Today i bought a Dell Inspiron 15 3521 Laptop (3rd Gen Ci3/ 4GB/ 500GB/ Ubuntu)

Then updated the packages from UPDATE MANGER..
After updating and reboot Wi-Fi stopped working..
Then tried to recover it from the dell recovery..
During which it got stuck and stopped progressing..
Thats it.. Laptop doesnt boot after this..Its displaying NTLDR missing..Which we get when boot gets corrupted in Windows XP...

How can i recover again to the previous state?

Having a similar issue..

Hi Shivtej2008,

Your fan running continuously because your machine got hybrid graphic card along with Intel graphics.

I faced the same problem untill the release of Ubuntu 16.04  LTS. I  am now using Ubuntu 16.04 LTS with no fan running problem.
