Can't get pwmconfig to work. I have tried several troubleshooting guides but it still returns /usr/bin/pwmconfig: There are no pwm-capable sensor modules installed

Thermald is installed by default on Ubuntu 15.10.

comment Ubuntu overheating laptop
This was after 20 minutes of normal use. If I do anything remotely intensive, such as watch a TV show only (1/2 hour), it reaches the 95-100 degree mark quite easily and lags the whole computer to the point where it is unusable. I am unable to take screen shots when this happens because it takes so long for anything to respond. Under normal operations, the laptop gets really hot almost to the point of it burning you when you touch it. My fans are also extremely loud compared to when it was running Windows. I am sure they are running at full speed but I will give this a go.

Thanks. I actually left it for quite a while (around half an hour) and nothing appeared to be happening.
