Well, did the problem start after running sensors detect or after a reboot?
it's the same problem. sensors-detect goes through several steps and prompts in between actions when it's about to do something that is "less secure". We all eventually press 'y' to all of those questions so you're in good(bad) company here...
The only temps detected right now are the CPU through ACPI and the hard drive through Udisks.
How do you monitor this without the screen?
Do I even need lm-sensors? I'll try to get on that computer later (connected to the TV) and see what I can find out.
It doesn't matter if it has written over a register. If that is the problem you can only fix this by rewriting that register with some good value.
I think the best thing for you would be to go to the source and try and ask at the lm-sensors mailing list.
