Thinkpad Fan Control PCI Constant at 62o

#1 Post by thinkpadgr » Mon Jan 23, 2012 11:13 am

Hello Everyone!

Just another happy x120e user and this is a really amazing but also noisy machine. I installed TPFC to get rid, or at least have a look on the fan performance/temp and I can't really understand why the PCI temp is stuck at 62C. Now, this has only happened to me recently, about 1 week ago. It was never above 40 somthing, but now it always stays at 62.. I can't really understand what going wrong there..

Any suggestions? I should also mention that I am not using any Lenovo software. Clean install with wifi/ati/sound/trackpad drivers only. Should I install the Lenovo Power Manager?

Thanks!!

I've just installed ArchLinux as well and checked with lm-sensors.. Maybe TPFC gives false data? There is no reading at 62C..

And once again with HM.

Should I just disable the sensor in the TPF.ini? And how do I do that?

Thanks!
