I am on ubuntu Precise Pangolin. The processor is Intel i3. a desktop.

I installed lm-sensors and below is the report sensors gave

cpu0_vid:    +2.050 V
intrusion0:  OK

radeon-pci-0100
Adapter: PCI adapter
temp1:        +70.5°C  

The fans sensors are detecting 0 RPM and some temperatures are out of range - the ALARMs above but i dont understand it very well. Can someone help out?

Please share more about your hardware (mainboard). The sensors in the CPU seem to be working well, yet the others seem not to give the correct values. Also please share the output of the command in Frantique's answer (long output, please post on pastebin or similar). –  gertvdijk Dec 11 '12 at 10:52

It seems that lm-sensors is getting wrong data. Try to run sudo sensors-detect first. Read carefully every output, on the last question:

Do you want to add these lines automatically to /etc/modules? (yes/NO)

type: yes+Enter, then reboot. See if something changed.
