    you can see in the picture i've posted.

    Your temperatures are not 100C, 100C is the "critical" value that is considered too high. You can adjust your laptop to shutdown should it reach critical temperature, which will prevent damage.

    In actuality, you are not getting any reading from any sensors. Run the following command:
    Code:
    sudo sensors-detect
    this will look for available sensors. If you still get no reading afterwards, it will be due to bad sensors or kernel bug.

    Well, here is the output a bit long, but I colored any line that asked me Yes or No.
    I answered all question yes. here the output:
    Code:
    ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo sensors-detect
        # sensors-detect revision 5984 (2011-07-10 21:22:53 +0200)
        # System: Dell Inc. Studio 1537 (laptop)
        # Board: Dell Inc. 0P171H
    
    
        This program will help you determine which kernel modules you need
        to load to use lm_sensors most effectively. It is generally safe
        and recommended to accept the default answers to all questions,
        unless you know what you're doing.
    
    
        Some south bridges, CPUs or memory controllers contain embedded sensors.
        Do you want to scan for them? This is totally safe. (YES/no): y
        Module cpuid loaded successfully.
        Silicon Integrated Systems SIS5595... No
        VIA VT82C686 Integrated Sensors... No
        VIA VT8231 Integrated Sensors... No

        AMD Family 10h thermal sensors... No
        AMD Family 11h thermal sensors... No
        AMD Family 12h and 14h thermal sensors... No
        AMD Family 15h thermal sensors... No
        AMD Family 15h power sensors... No
        Intel digital thermal sensor... Success!
        (driver `coretemp')
        Intel AMB FB-DIMM thermal sensor... No
        VIA C7 thermal sensor... No
        VIA Nano thermal sensor... No
    
    
        Some Super I/O chips contain embedded sensors. We have to write to
        standard I/O ports to probe them. This is usually safe.
        Do you want to scan for Super I/O sensors? (YES/no): y
        Probing for Super-I/O at 0x2e/0x2f
        Trying family `National Semiconductor/ITE'... No
        Trying family `SMSC'... No

        Trying family `National Semiconductor/ITE'... Yes
        Found `ITE IT8512E/F/G Super IO'
        (but not activated)
    
    
        Some hardware monitoring chips are accessible through the ISA I/O ports.
        We have to write to arbitrary I/O ports to probe them. This is usually
        safe though. Yes, you do have ISA I/O ports even if you do not have any
        ISA slots! Do you want to scan the ISA I/O ports? (YES/no): y
        Probing for `National Semiconductor LM78' at 0x290... No
        Probing for `National Semiconductor LM79' at 0x290... No
        Probing for `Winbond W83781D' at 0x290... No
        Probing for `Winbond W83782D' at 0x290... No
    
    
        Lastly, we can probe the I2C/SMBus adapters for connected hardware
        monitoring devices. This is the most risky part, and while it works
        reasonably well on most systems, it has been reported to cause trouble
        on some systems.
        Do you want to probe the I2C/SMBus adapters now? (YES/no): y

        Do you want to scan it? (YES/no/selectively): y

        Do you want to scan it? (YES/no/selectively): y
        y
    
    
        Now follows a summary of the probes I have just done.
        Just press ENTER to continue:
        Driver `coretemp':
        * Chip `Intel digital thermal sensor' (confidence: 9)
    
    
        To load everything that is needed, add this to /etc/modules:
        #----cut here----
        # Chip drivers
        coretemp
        #----cut here----
        If you have some drivers built into your kernel, the list above will
        contain too many modules. Skip the appropriate ones!
    
    
        Do you want to add these lines automatically to /etc/modules? (yes/NO)y
        Successful!
    
    
        Monitoring programs won't work until the needed modules are
        loaded. You may want to run 'service module-init-tools start'
        to load them.
    
    
        Unloading i2c-dev... OK
        Unloading i2c-i801... OK
        Unloading cpuid... OK

    Now you can either type:
    Code:
    sudo service module-init-tools start
    sensors
    or you can reboot and try
    Code:
    sensors
    again.

    I run the first two commands. that is the output now, but seems to miss some other important information from other sensors:
    Code:
    ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo service module-init-tools start
    module-init-tools stop/waiting
    ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sensors
    acpitz-virtual-0
    Adapter: Virtual device
    temp1: +0.0C (crit = +100.0C)
    temp2: +0.0C (crit = +100.0C)
    temp3: +0.0C (crit = +100.0C)
    
    
    coretemp-isa-0000
    Adapter: ISA adapter
    Core 0: +32.0C (high = +105.0C, crit = +105.0C)
    Core 1: +30.0C (high = +105.0C, crit = +105.0C)
    and Thanks you for helping me.

    The ACPI is giving you some bug, my guess is that this is due to many laptops not following the ACPI standards. Anyway, you are reading 32C for your CPU, which is perfectly normal and healthy temperature.

    Psensors should get this reading now and you can have it run in the Unity panel to keep an eye on it.

    at first I got core1 and 2 temp', then the computer has shutdown again and after that i got more data from more sensors:
    Code:
    ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sensors
    acpitz-virtual-0
    Adapter: Virtual device
    temp1:        +46.0C  (crit = +100.0C)
    temp2:        +46.0C  (crit = +100.0C)
    temp3:        +65.0C  (crit = +100.0C)
    
    
    coretemp-isa-0000
    Adapter: ISA adapter
    Core 0:       +42.0C  (high = +105.0C, crit = +105.0C)
    Core 1:       +42.0C  (high = +105.0C, crit = +105.0C)
    and in Psensor:



    so, it seems the temp' is causing the shutings-down. but is there a way so i will be able to know which hardware component is belong to each temp' instead of temp1,2,3... ?

    Thank for your help (:
