hello i just have proudly installed debian in my asus laptop but noticed a constant fan working then opened system monitor to find cpu at 100% sometimes lil bit less of activity and im afraid my cpu will burn ... also screen size and wifi doesnt respond i mean i cannot configure the size of screen and wifi is just not there... b4 using the spyware ubuntu i could use wife and configure screen size any help please? i also noticed swap is there but not have been used so maybe this is overloading cpu? thank u.

I have to install the drivers by myself... i did tried following the page u directed me to but i got some issues with the explanations since they are made for an user already knowledgeable with all commands (save and close, where to save?, etc) surely i will learn with time and i will do it, im using t5 cable for my connection now, but the MAIN issue remains the cpu working like crazy, the fan is always on and by touch i feeel it getting very hot so i dont have much time to use the machine to work with drivers i dont want the cpu to melt, maybe is the architecture of the amd is not compatible with debian or maybe is my hardware is not compatible ... if u r aware of any reason why the cpu is at 100% let me know pls
