why is sensors-detect giving only coretemp as an output without the motherboard information, trying to control cpu gpu fans Ubuntu 14.04

output of sensors detect:

sensors-detect revision 6170 (2013-05-20 21:25:22 +0200)

System: Micro-Star International Co., Ltd. GS63VR 6RF [REV:1.0] (laptop)

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): y Module cpuid loaded successfully. Silicon Integrated Systems SIS5595... No VIA VT82C686 Integrated Sensors... No VIA VT8231 Integrated Sensors... No AMD K8 thermal sensors... No AMD Family 10h thermal sensors... No AMD Family 11h thermal sensors... No AMD Family 12h and 14h thermal sensors... No AMD Family 15h thermal sensors... No AMD Family 15h power sensors... No AMD Family 16h power sensors... No Intel digital thermal sensor... Success! (driver `coretemp') Intel AMB FB-DIMM thermal sensor... No VIA C7 thermal sensor... No VIA Nano thermal sensor... No

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): y Probing for Super-I/O at 0x2e/0x2f Trying family National Semiconductor/ITE'... No Trying familySMSC'... No Trying family VIA/Winbond/Nuvoton/Fintek'... No Trying familyITE'... No Probing for Super-I/O at 0x4e/0x4f Trying family National Semiconductor/ITE'... No Trying familySMSC'... No Trying family VIA/Winbond/Nuvoton/Fintek'... No Trying familyITE'... No

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): y Probing for National Semiconductor LM78' at 0x290... No Probing forNational Semiconductor LM79' at 0x290... No Probing for Winbond W83781D' at 0x290... No Probing forWinbond W83782D' at 0x290... No

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): y Found unknown SMBus adapter 8086:a123 at 0000:00:1f.4. Sorry, no supported PCI bus adapters found.

Next adapter: i915 gmbus dpc (i2c-0) Do you want to scan it? (yes/NO/selectively): y

Next adapter: i915 gmbus dpb (i2c-1) Do you want to scan it? (yes/NO/selectively): y

Next adapter: DPDDC-A (i2c-3) Do you want to scan it? (YES/no/selectively): y Client found at address 0x50 Probing for Analog Devices ADM1033'... No Probing forAnalog Devices ADM1034'... No Probing for SPD EEPROM'... No Probing forEDID EEPROM'... Yes (confidence 8, not a hardware monitoring chip)

Next adapter: DPDDC-C (i2c-4) Do you want to scan it? (YES/no/selectively): y

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

Driver coretemp': * ChipIntel digital thermal sensor' (confidence: 9)

To load everything that is needed, add this to /etc/modules:

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!

The line of w83627ehf is missing from the output of sensors-detect on my PC

  • Copy and paste the SuperIO test near the top, the screenshot omits that. – rtaft May 31 at 0:46
  • 'sensors-detect' is only part of the steps to a solution for running the fans - this program is telling you that you should install the module 'coretemp'. Please see https://askubuntu.com/a/1123221/283721 – Charles Green May 31 at 14:29
  • @rtaft how do I do a SuperIO test ? – Tab_ninja Jun 1 at 0:40
  • @CharlesGreen nah I added the coretemp to modules but the problem there should another text under the coretemp in the output of sensors-detect, I'll the image from the tutorial to the question – Tab_ninja Jun 1 at 0:44
  • sensors-detect is a series of tests. The second test is a Super IO test. Your screenshot cuts off the beginning of sensors-detect so we can't see the Super IO test. Copy and paste the output from that part of the test. Also paste the very beginning where it has 'Board', 'System', etc. – rtaft Jun 1 at 10:31
