Description of problem:
Every time I boot my system, I would get a message says:
Thermal Shutdown Occurred
The system BIOS has detected that your notebook PC was put into hibernation or shutdown to avoid overheating. The system is now operating normally.
Overheating may occurred if the cooling vents are blocked or the operating temperature exceeds the specifications. The system should return to normal once the situation is resolved.
After a few seconds, it boots into Fedora 15.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
It never shuts down due to temperature related problems actually, but the warning message is annoying.
Boot smoothly with no warning message.
My laptop is a new one, so it couldn't be the cooling vents reason.
This problem also occurred with Ubuntu, Debian as far as I have tried, but not with Windows.
If I add "acpi=off" to the boot options, the warning message would disappear.
Processor: 2.1 GHz Intel Core i3-2310M
Video card: an ATI Radeon HD6470M and an Intel GMA HD integrated graphic chipset
What laptop model is it ?
Can you attach the output of this script..
for dir in /sys/class/thermal/thermal_zone*
for i in mode passive temp trip_point_0_temp trip_point_0_type type
echo -n $i:
also attach the output of dmesg.

output of dmesg
I ran it from Live CD.
My laptop is an HP Pavilion g4-1016tx.
There are numerous ACPI bugs reported in that dmesg.
The one most relevant to your thermal issue is this ..
[ 1.363735] [Firmware Bug]: Invalid critical threshold (0)
As it suggests, it's a firmware bug, not a kernel bug so we can't do anything about it. See if there's a BIOS update available from HP.
Also, could you install the pmtools package, run acpidump as root and attach the output?

Ok, I think I see the problem. Working on it now.
I have a HP Envy 17" 3D running Ubuntu 11.04 and I'm having this same issue....any solution yet
Today I tried Fedora 16 Alpha from Live CD, and the problem still exists.
By the way, my BIOS vendor is Insyde.

output of dmesg(new version)
I updated my BIOS to the latest version today, and it solved my problem. Now I can boot smoothly without that annoying message.
But there are still some ACPI Errors and a firmware bug in the output of dmesg.
