Each time I turn my laptop on, the temp6 sensor is stuck in +20,0ºC, so the fans never turn on and eventually my laptop turns off from overheating. If I suspend my session and then reopen, it changes to being stuck on +90,0ºC and the fans go to the maximum speed and never stop, causing a lot of noise. Can anyone help me to fix this?

This is the reading I get when I reopen the session after suspending it:

Adapter: Virtual device
temp1:        +16.0°C  (crit = +108.0°C)
temp2:        +43.0°C  (crit = +105.0°C)
temp3:        +39.0°C  (crit = +108.0°C)
temp4:        +43.0°C  (crit = +105.0°C)
temp5:        +20.0°C  (crit = +108.0°C)
temp6:        +90.0°C  (crit = +110.0°C)

Adapter: ISA adapter
Core 0:       +44.0°C  (high = +105.0°C, crit = +105.0°C)
Core 1:       +37.0°C  (high = +105.0°C, crit = +105.0°C)
