General :: Temperature Monitoring On Dell - No Sensors Detected?
Jun 27, 2010
I have a Dell Precision M4500, Intel Core i5 CPU, running Linux (Ubuntu Lucid), and would like to keep an eye on CPU temperature. I've tried lm-sensors: sensors-detect didn't find any sensors; following its hint ("This is relatively common on laptops, where thermal management is handled by ACPI rather than the OS.") I tried acpi -V but got nothing thermal. The Gnome panel applet "Hardware Sensors Monitor" reports on GPU temperature but nothing else.
I have just recently installed opensuse 11.3 on my computer. I have switched from Ubuntu and have been trying to get things configured similar to what it was. One problem I have encountered is with installing sensors and k10temp, the module needed to monitor my CPU temp. within Linux. I have an AMD sempron and a biostar mcp6p m2+ motherboard. I have installed package "sensors" and have run the sensors-detect and it went through and found k10temp that I would need to load within the kernel for this to work properly. I had this working in Ubuntu, but not sure how to do it in openSuse. I have tried compiling the k10temp source, running modprobe k10temp and received no output, and looked around the conf files, but not sure how to go about doing it?
Now follows a summary of the probes I have just done. Just press ENTER to continue: Driver `k10temp' (autoloaded): * Chip `AMD Family 10h thermal sensors' (confidence: 9) No modules to load, skipping modules configuration. Unloading i2c-dev... OK
There is a debugging panel on my motherboard, and I think that that displays the CPU temperature, although I am not sure.
I have Debian Squeeze with Gnome "sensors-applet" installed.I have a Nvidia 7300GT GPU whose Thermal Monitoring(Temperature) is Shown fine on "nvidia-settings" GUI. But ,Sensors Applet in Debian shows only CPU temp and if I install hddtemp,it will show hard disk temperatures.
I ended up rebuilding the package from debian source enabling nvidia support.and it worked(with "DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS="--enable-gui --with-nvidia" Has Any Work Around to show nvidia GPU temperature without rebuilding the package ?PS:Below is a screenshot of nvidia GPU temperature showing in the top panel(of Gnome). sensors-applet_nvidia.png (5.5 KiB) Viewed 518 times
I have a dual boot with xp and opensuse 11.4. There has been an annoying 'system fan has failed' error message that was dealt with by replacing a fan and installing speedfan and hardware monitor on the windows partition, but my opensuse installation has no such programs running, and I want to keep things cool while I'm running opensuse. Speedfan is a program that tells the fans to turn on and off. Usually according to the temperature that the sensors are reading. The program shows temperatures and fan speeds and allows you to have control.Is there a fan speed/temperature monitoring program for opensuse?
So i hava a ASUS M3N78-VM mobo and recently i got a Athlon II 250 CPU tp replace my aging Athlon 3200+. I installed the BIOS update 1407 that includes support for this CPU. I have Debian Squeeze installed.
I have installed the 2.6.35 kernel from experimental and this has the k10temp module that is made for the k10 series AMD CPUs (Athlon II etc). But there is also the atk0110 ACPI module that gets sensor readings fom voltages, MB and CPU temps from the motherboard (i think so). The issue is this: if i run sensors i get this:
Code: # sensors atk0110-acpi-0 Adapter: ACPI interface Vcore Voltage: +1.07 V (min = +0.80 V, max = +1.80 V)
Notice the difference between the 2 module's reported temperature for the CPU (34 C vs 19.2 C). I rebooted the computer and entered the BIOS - it has shown the values shown by the acpi sensor (it increased rapidly to 38-39 but gone back to 34-35 after i loaded the OS). Does this mean that the k10temp module reports erroneous temperature or that everybody else (BIOS + ACPI sensor) is wrong and i have an ice cool CPU?
I am having difficulty setting up lm-sensors so that I can monitor fan speed and temps. I have been following theHow-To on the forums, but it appears I don't have the sensors detected/loaded properly.
This is the current output: Code: ronald@ronald-Satellite-L505:~$ sensors acpitz-virtual-0 Adapter: Virtual device temp1: +69.0C (crit = +114.0C) coretemp-isa-0000 Adapter: ISA adapter Core 0: +63.0C (high = +105.0C, crit = +105.0C) coretemp-isa-0001 Adapter: ISA adapter Core 1: +57.0C (high = +105.0C, crit = +105.0C)
Below is a copy of what I have been trying in terminal. Here is a walkthrough of sensors-detect: Code: ronald@ronald-Satellite-L505:~$ sudo sensors-detect [sudo] password for ronald: # sensors-detect revision 5818 (2010-01-18 17:22:07 +0100) # System: TOSHIBA Satellite L505 (laptop) # Board: TOSHIBA Portable PC ..... Monitoring programs won't work until the needed modules are loaded. You may want to run '/etc/init.d/module-init-tools start' to load them.

I recently assembled a Dell T5400 workstation. I'm getting some strange issues with this machine concerning fan controller.
-Only 2/4 motherboard fans are detected. All fans have RPM signal -The only sensors that are reporting temperatures are for the memory modules,graphic card and disk but not from my Intel CPU's. This chip reports memory module temperatures as they tend to get pretty hot (DDR2-FBDIMM). -Every time a fan speed gets reported with sensors command the bus freezes for a moment. Videos playback and audio chops for a moment and continue normally.
After removing module dell_smm_hwmon the sensors command executed without interrupting multimedia flow but no fan speeds were reported also.
As a temp solution I blacklisted the dell_smm_hwmon module and I solved the high fan noise problems and the bus freeze.
As it turns out i8k module for fan control is very buggy for some DELL models. Can I manually configure it somehow to work?
So to sum up the problems my problems are:
No CPU temperatures reporting. 2 Fans Speed and PWM controller info missing, and freezing the bus when probing to get speeds from those identified (dell_smm_hwmon module issues).
The object is to get fancontrol working in my setup.
I just got a dell studio 1557 with core i7 processor. I have heard they run warm and suspect this one is no exception but am having a hard time monitoring the temps. When doing acpi -V i can see 2 thermal zones (0,1) with the first being 63C and the second always staying 26.8C. When I am doing a lot of processing the first thermal zone jumps up quickly. First, should that be the processor temp? Secondly, any way to get more accurate readings with lm-sensors(sensors-detect can find no monitoring items).
I can't for the life of me get the xsensors to work. I installed lm-sensors, the applet and also xsensors.I followed everything on this guide:URl... Went through it more than twice and a couple of restarts. I just can't figure out what's wrong.When I run "sensors" nothing is found. I ran the sensors configuration and it only found one device to add to /etc/modules. Please see the trace below, I would be very grateful if you can help me find the fix for this! The desktop is an HP Pavilion a730n with a Pentium4 processor.
I would like to use lm-sensors with my new PC.With my old one lm-sensors showed all sensors of CPU, GPU, wattage and Fan.With the new AMD64 (kernel 2.6.32-5 on Debian Squeeze) I get only the temperature of the GPU and the HDD.The only found sensor is "Fintek F71882FG/F71883FG Super IO Sensors"No embedded "AMD [...] thermal sensors" found in sensors-detect How can I fix it?sensors-detect
I have installed opensuse11.3 on my dell desktop. I get the gui with only 4 or 8 bit colors. I have resolution 0f 1024x768, which I have given at installation time. I cannot change it any more. I have followed your SDB:Configuring graphics cards - openSUSE guide. here is my lspci output
I have tried to configure the xorg with command Xorg -configure. I surprised that it cause Segmentation fault. I have captured the Xorg -configure command in strace. I am pasting here certain last lines, I cannot paste the whole output because it is too large.
ISSUE SOLVED: FOUND SOLUTION ON LINUX MINT COMMUNITY[URL]... The solution is for debian, but it worked for me on Kubuntu 11.04. I just installed Kubuntu, and my wireless is not getting detected. I tried a variety of solutions I found online, but none worked. It worked perfectly for Ubuntu Gnome.
When I tried installing the Broadcom drivers in the "Additional Drivers", I got an error that the driver could not be installed.
I just got a new laptop, and installed fedora 13 on it. I have had no major problems, until i tried to hook up a external monitor. It does not show up in the gnome-display application, and the keyboard switching button combination (Fn+f#) does not work. On my past laptop, this worked fresh from the install, f8->f10->f11.
Dell Latitude E6410 nVidia Corporation GT218 [NVS 3100M] (rev a2)
Installed fedora 13 to hard drive on fresh partition,installed ok,ran updater,installed all updates.all working ok but fedora is not able to detect my laptop monitor.i am unable to increase resolution.stuck on 800 * 600. when a window in open and i need to click at the bottom of the window i cant because it is bellow the screen.I went to [URL] to look for drivers.it only shows display drivers for red hat 7.0.i tried them but wont install.is thier drivers i can use for fedora 13,or a way to force resolution into 1024*768.
I have spent many time searching for my prob but couldn't solve it. i installed ubuntu 9.10 recently. the problem is that my integrated webcam and microphone are not being detected. i tried cheese, camorama webcam viewer and skype.. its like that webcam drivers are not installed. and i couldn't find any drivers. camorama gives the error: could not connect to video device(/dev/video0) cheese also says No camera found!
reading other threads i found that lsusb comand output might help so here is its output.. code...
I am running the latest version of arch linux on a Dell Latitude D420. So far everything has worked perfectly except the wireless. It seems that Arch does not even detect the wireless because ifconfig -a only gives me the loopback and eth0. I installed ndiswrapper as well as the drivers. lsmod | grep ndiswrapper shows that ndiswrapper is being loaded on boot. I tried to install the iwp3945 drivers, but they have become obsolete so pacman was unable to find them. I also tried installing the iwl3945 drivers as explained here [URL] but still no luck.
This is my problem, I want to install debian 5.5 Lenny stable (2.6.26-2-amd64) on our new Dell PowerEdge T610 with a PERC controller H200 but nothing to do, the default Debian installer does not detect it. After more research, the module that I must load is "mpt2sas" and after normaly my hard-drive will be detected I'm going on the Dell site, there are only drivers for RedHat and Suze distribution .. I still try to install rpm packages but without success!
i have installed red hat 5.1 on my dell inspiron 1525 laptop.It is not detecting any ethernet card.driver is marvel yukon 88E8040So far i found this package to be installed kmod-sk98lin-PAE-10.70.7.3-2.el5.elrepo.i686.rpm but it is showing me the dependencies problems..
today my windows crashed and i decided to move into Linux.But here comes my biggest problem now, i cannot connect to wireless network but i am able to connect through wired connectionmine is a 10 year old computer so i think the card used is Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABGi am using Fedora 14. please note that i know only very little in Linux so please respond accordingly
Have done the following troubleshooting suggestions from around the www:
LAN controller is enabled in BIOS dmesg | grep eth0 returns nothing lspci -v | grep -i net shows wifi adapter but no ethernet adapter ifconfig -a does not show eth0 ifconfig eth0 up confirms ERROR while getting interface flags: No such device Have done lsmod, but not sure what I should be looking for.
I would post lspci, dmesg or any other output, but as the adapter is not being detected, I have no network/internet connection from that laptop, have only one other Windows based (at this stage) laptop that I am using to write this message, and so would have to type out the output manually.Adapter indicators are both on when laptop is powered up. Am unsure if the ethernet adapter has somehow gone to sleep, and if so, unsure how to wake it.Perhaps the ethernet adapter is defective, but am hoping to confirm this before looking for a workaround/replacement.
I'm having problem in installing debian 7.5.0 on Dell Power Edge R 470 1U Rack Server ( Not Sure If am using RAID 1 ) whereby the hard drive is not detected. This server is running 2 Proc/2x1.2 SAS HDD . The installation went ok until i reached into partition section whereby the drives is not there to be selected , throwing an error " No disk drive detected , Driver needed fro your disk drive "
I've tried to use debian-7.8.0-amd64-DVD-1.iso
My server details: Dell Power Edge R 470 32GB RAM 2 x 1.2 TB SAS HDD
I have hddtemp installed and I get outputs of my HDD temperature in Terminal, but I can't see a the HDD temp sensor in the Preferences menu of my Sensors Applet.
P.S. I have my /etc/default/hddtemp edited to:
Code: # [automatically edited by postinst, do not change line format or set it to # anything but false or true ] RUN_DAEMON="true" # List of devices you want to use with hddtemp. If none specified, # hddtemp will probe standard devices. DISKS="/dev/sda"
My Drive is a 7200.11 Barracuda split in /dev/sda1 and /dev/sda5, I use LinuxMint 10 64-bit w/ Gnome.
EDIT: I just had to reboot after I changed to RUN_DAEMON="true",
