Every linux distribution completely stop working and freezes on my ASUS N82jQ notebook after a while!

I'm a windows guy that decided to move on Linux on my laptop. Unfortunately for my ASUS N82JQ (Intel Core i7 720QM, 6G DDR3 RAM, NVIDIA GeForce GT 335M with 1GB DDR3 VRAM) it's regular that CPU temps reach more than 90 centigrade degrees and it wont make any problem on windows 7.

But as I moved on Linux and tested latest version of every distribution like Ubuntu, Mint(cinnamon,mate,KDE,XFCE), Fedora(workstation), Xubuntu and even OpenSUSE I feel something wrong cause after a while and working on and doing nothing special (web browsing with Firefox or editing google docs), when CPU temps goes high everything stops working and desktop freezes (turning off and on is not effective either and it freezes in a less time duration because CPU is still hot).

Is really Linux incompatible with my laptop or there is a solution to this issue?


You need to install Nvidia drivers. Run in terminal

sudo apt install nvidia-340 nvidia-prime

and reboot.

You will be able to switch graphics in Nvidia X Server Settings application (PRIME section).

I recommend to switch to Intel, if you are not playing games.
