sorry but there is no temperature monitoring for 9250's. The only way you could possbile do it would be a temperature probe or an infared temperature reader... but they arent cheap. Sorry!

You can't really "fix it" because your 9250, based on the RV280 core, does not have a physical temperature sensor within the core. As most low-end cards do not.

I remember having a 9200SE, to have a sense of relative temperature I used the "touch the heatsink" method. If it felt blistering hot, I knew that temps were too high.

You won't have to worry about monitoring your temps, because symptoms of overheating will include "artifacting" in visually intensive 3d apps and games. Once artifacting occurs, just back down on the core/mem frequencies.
