LMDE on ToshibaNB200: missing thermal information

Postby Tray on Wed Feb 15, 2012 5:20 pm

Hi there,

I've a problem with the fan of my Toshiba NB200: It simply does not work. After several hours of working it becomes very hot and I'm afraid to destroy anything. Beside it's annoying to press hot buttons. My research leads me to missing sensor information, wich I tried to solve the following way:

$ sudo sensors
No sensors found!
Make sure you loaded all the kernel drivers you need.
Try sensors-detect to find out which these are.
$ sudo sensors-detect
[...]
Driver `coretemp':
* Chip `Intel digital thermal sensor' (confidence: 9)
[...]
I added coretemp to /etc/modules and it said, that's loaded while booting so I tries a reboot. After that:
$ sudo sensors
No sensors found!
Make sure you loaded all the kernel drivers you need.
Try sensors-detect to find out which these are.
A friend of mine told me to try modprobe:
$ sudo modprobe coretemp --first-time
FATAL: Module coretemp already in kernel.

After that I'm out of ideas how to solve that problem. Some system information:
System: TOSHIBA TOSHIBA NB200 (laptop)
Board: TOSHIBA KAVAA
Processor: Intel Atom N280 1.66 GHz
OS: LMDE XFCE 32bit
Kernel: 3.0.0-1-486 (i686)

I appreciate your help and hope for any hint to solve my problem.
Greetings,
Tray
