Heat issues on XPS M1530

I run Ubuntu 8.04 on a Dell XPS M1530, and it gets considerably hotter than
it does in Vista. A lightly loaded system seems to have both cores at ~58C,
and it increases when the workload does. Sometimes it overheats, and
caps+num lock flashes while everything else is locked up. I tried installing
i8kmon, but that only made things worse.

Anyone got an idea what I can do to fix this?
