I have a motherboard with a bad temp sensor or something, because the bios always reports 127 degrees. It's not 127 degrees. I've tested several cpu's & heatsink/fan combos. I'm running Mint/Lucid right now & there are no problems, but if I install let's say... Debian sid... or a spin-off, then I run into this "Critical temperature reached 127C Auto Shutdown" problem with thermal_sys. I'm assuming this is a feature of the newer kernel. Any attempt to install Windows invokes Dikembe Mutumbo as well. Is there a safe way to disable this from killing the boot process so that I may enjoy siduction on this limper system? It's an older quad Phenom cpu, plenty of ram, & i want to keep it on the bench. Any ideas?
