Speedfan problem, says cpu temp is -49*C O_O

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Ok well I really had no idea where to post this, as I really am not sure whats wrong in the first place, so i figured "Other Software" would do. Sorry if it's in the wrong place, or could be better.

Anyways, heres the deal. I just downloaded SpeedFan and I really like it. It was reading real fine, saying my processor temp was around 30C, which I guess is about right. It's a 3400+ w/ stock air cooling. So then i found a program called clockgen, mess with the PLL's hoping I pick the right one, and then I think I found the right one. Well while I am messing with them, I find out that SpeedFan (after I restart it) that it now reads my processor as -49C. What in the world could be wrong? Well I found the right PLL, overclocked it to 2.3Ghz, CPU-Z reads it as 2.3Ghz, so I was hoping now the temp might read right but it still says -49C. I tried uninstalling it using Revo Uninstaller. Still didn't work. PC Wizard 2007 reads it as around the mid 20's C, while it was overclocked and after I restarted my computer.

Anyone have any suggestions? Bios read it as mid to low 30's C too. Thanks for any help.

I assume that by "uninstalling it" you mean clockgen and not Speedfan? If so, you might try uninstalling Speedfan completely, rebooting, and then reinstalling it.

Also, make sure you have the latest version of Speedfan. IIRC, there was one version that was inaccurate. Not as inaccurate as what you are describing but still.

I reinstalled SpeedFan And it is the latest version.
I believ I may have a problem though, I just downloaded hwmonitor, and it is only displaying the temperatures of both my hard drives and thats it. I also oc'd it from 2.2ghz to 2.3ghz and there was no change in temperature according to PC Wizard 2008, it is still at 28C, not changing.

Is it possible the sensor like died while I was doing all this? Can they die?

Hm, I am sure it is possible that the sensor failed. How likely it is, I dunno. I have not heard of those sensors failing before, but what do I know

Are you still able to read the temp in the BIOS, and does it change when you OC it? If so, then the sensor is not dead and it is a software problem.

Must be a software, because the bios read 44C steady without really changing (does the bios temp change?). So if the senser was dead I'm guessing it'd say something different.
Hmm that's really weird.

Im going to change it from 2.2ghz to 2.4ghz, and see if it changes in pc wizard, even though 28C and 44C is a big jump O_o

Just wanted to let yall know it works now. It's reading in between 32C and 34C. I restarted the computer without clockgens settings to autostart and it works. Thanks.

Use the new release of real temp, it always reports the right temperatures.
