How' bout this : most PC motherboards have a sensors menu in the BIOS,
which displays temperature, CPU fan rpm, etc, etc. I suggests the OP
looks in the BIOS and tells us if there are temperature readings in the
BIOS menu plus the exact type of motherboard he has so we can help him
enable ACPI or whatever.
