I think i'm missing something simple here. My Zotac Ion G-E board (one of those small form factor ITX Atom / ION combos) gives me a ton of trouble with one thing - I can't get temperatures for the CPU or hard drives when inside windows.

RealTemp reports CPU temps between -6 to -10 Celsius.
CoreTemp reports CPU temps between 155 to 157 Celsius.
CPUID hardware can't even find temps.

I've also noticed that both HDtune and CPUID HWMonitor can't see the hard drive temperatures.

I'm running Windows 7 64-bit. It's bizarre. My desktop computer (i7 930 / Asus P6X58D premium) is running the same operating system, and I can get temps easily using RealTemp / CoreTemp (and they tend to be in good agreement!). I can also see HDD temps in HDTune.

Anyone got suggestions here? I'm lost on this one.

EDIT: the BIOS gives reasonable temperature estimates of about 38-40 C for the CPU.

EDIT (again): "In cases when the sensor in disabled, Core Temp may wrongly report an extremely high temperature of close or over 150C with a (?) sign next to it." Looks like the sensor may be disabled, buy I have no idea why
