I instaled lm-sensors followed everyting

This program will help you determine which kernel modules you need
to load to use lm_sensors most effectively. It is generally safe
and recommended to accept the default answers to all questions,
unless you know what you're doing.

Some south bridges, CPUs or memory controllers contain embedded sensors.
Do you want to scan for them? This is totally safe. (YES/no): yes

Some Super I/O chips contain embedded sensors. We have to write to
standard I/O ports to probe them. This is usually safe.
Do you want to scan for Super I/O sensors? (YES/no): yes

Some hardware monitoring chips are accessible through the ISA I/O ports.
We have to write to arbitrary I/O ports to probe them. This is usually
safe though. Yes, you do have ISA I/O ports even if you do not have any
ISA slots! Do you want to scan the ISA I/O ports? (YES/no): yes

Lastly, we can probe the I2C/SMBus adapters for connected hardware
monitoring devices. This is the most risky part, and while it works
reasonably well on most systems, it has been reported to cause trouble
on some systems.
Do you want to probe the I2C/SMBus adapters now? (YES/no): yes

Now follows a summary of the probes I have just done.
Just press ENTER to continue: 

Driver `coretemp':
  * Chip `Intel digital thermal sensor' (confidence: 9)

To load everything that is needed, add this to /etc/modules:
#----cut here----
# Chip drivers
coretemp
#----cut here----
If you have some drivers built into your kernel, the list above will
 contain too many modules. Skip the appropriate ones!

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

Monitoring programs won't work until the needed modules are
loaded. You may want to run 'service module-init-tools start'
 to load them.

 Unloading cpuid... OK

then

 sudo service module-init-tools restart

then

sensor

and i get this response

 acpitz-virtual-0
 Adapter: Virtual device
 temp1:        +46.0 C  (crit = +108.0 C)

 coretemp-isa-0000
 Adapter: ISA adapter

 Core 2:         +43.0 C  (high = +87.0 C, crit = +105.0 C)
 Core 3:         +44.0 C  (high = +87.0 C, crit = +105.0 C)

asus-isa-0000
Adapter: ISA adapter
temp1:        +46.0 C  

then i installed

 fancontrol

and when i tryed to run

 sudo pwmconfig



 This program will search your sensors for pulse width modulation (pwm)
 controls, and test each one to see if it controls a fan on
 your motherboard. Note that many motherboards do not have pwm
 circuitry installed, even if your sensor chip supports pwm.

 We will attempt to briefly stop each fan using the pwm controls.
 The program will attempt to restore each fan to full speed
 after testing. However, it is ** very important ** that you
 physically verify that the fans have been to full speed
 after the program has completed.

 /usr/sbin/pwmconfig: There are no fan-capable sensor modules installed

adn i can not find a way to make my fan change speed

can someone help me

i dont know if its due to the chipset or configuration

  • Asus n67vb
  • Intel® Core™ i7 3630QM Processor
  • Intel® HM76 Chipset
  • DDR3 1600 MHz SDRAM 12GB
  • NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 740M with 4GB DDR3 VRAM

What is the version of Ubuntu that you are using? And what is the exact issue that you're having? Does the fan does NOT work at all, or is it just misbehaving (i.e. fanning always too much)? –  landroni Jan 26 at 12:59
    
i forgot to mark as solved , but after a couple of updates it started working fine ... now im on 13.10 and its working as it should –  ddjikic Jan 27 at 13:16
    
Could you add the steps to solve the issue (installed updates of what packages, etc.) and then accept your own answer? I may soon get myself a laptop with the same nVidia graphics card, so I'm very interested in the solution. –  landroni Jan 27 at 13:34
    
@landroni basicly there is only the processor fan that turn on because the graphic are manly rendered with hd4000 and i have one fan for cpu and gpu so it depend on witch laptop you will get but for me other sensors dictate the fan speed –  ddjikic Feb 21 at 11:31
