    Re: Toshiba Satellite fan issue

    Couldn't find valid info on setting an audible alarm but I was reading when I suddenly did this:

    Have you tried
    sudo sensors-detect
    in terminal?

    If not: Answer yes to all scans - should be fine, if it 'bombs' after selecting yes to a particular scan then notate that scan and answer no to it next time till it makes it through.

    Sorry for posting in haste, do whatever it was that got the fan to go 'automatically' at all (albeit too slow) and reboot when this completes.

    Any better?

    If this is a game thread and you are going to post I hope you have read the Original Post.

    # sensors-detect revision 5818 (2010-01-18 17:22:07 +0100)

    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): yes
    Silicon Integrated Systems SIS5595...                       No
    VIA VT82C686 Integrated Sensors...                          No
    VIA VT8231 Integrated Sensors...                            No
    AMD K8 thermal sensors...                                   No
    AMD Family 10h thermal sensors...                           No
    AMD Family 11h thermal sensors...                           Success!
        (driver `k10temp')
    Intel Core family thermal sensor...                         No
    Intel Atom thermal sensor...                                No
    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): yes
    Probing for Super-I/O at 0x2e/0x2f
    Trying family `National Semiconductor'...                   Yes
    Found unknown chip with ID 0xfc11
    Probing for Super-I/O at 0x4e/0x4f
    Trying family `National Semiconductor'...                   No
    Trying family `SMSC'...                                     No
    Trying family `VIA/Winbond/Nuvoton/Fintek'...               No
    Trying family `ITE'...                                      No
    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): yes
    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): yes  
    Using driver `i2c-piix4' for device 0000:00:14.0: ATI Technologies Inc SB600/SB700/SB800 SMBus
    Module i2c-dev loaded successfully.
    Next adapter: SMBus PIIX4 adapter at 0b00 (i2c-0)
    Do you want to scan it? (YES/no/selectively): yes
    Client found at address 0x50
    Probing for `Analog Devices ADM1033'...                     No
    Probing for `Analog Devices ADM1034'...                     No
    Probing for `SPD EEPROM'...                                 Yes
        (confidence 8, not a hardware monitoring chip)
    Probing for `EDID EEPROM'...                                No
    Client found at address 0x52
    Probing for `Analog Devices ADM1033'...                     No
    Probing for `Analog Devices ADM1034'...                     No
    Probing for `SPD EEPROM'...                                 Yes
        (confidence 8, not a hardware monitoring chip)
    Now follows a summary of the probes I have just done.
    Just press ENTER to continue: 
    Driver `k10temp' (autoloaded):
      * Chip `AMD Family 11h thermal sensors' (confidence: 9)
    No modules to load, skipping modules configuration.
    Unloading i2c-dev... OK
    The best one - 'best' not counting for much, they're all pretty weak - seemed to be RJ12's modification to the grub file. I'll put it back that way and see what happens.

    Re: Toshiba Satellite fan issue

    It seems better than before, but I don't think it's any better than it has been. Certainly more so than HermanAB's suggestion - doubtful that it's even possible to implement that correctly any more. Barring the hardware suggestions of wiring it up to be constantly on, which seems unnecessary and potentially harmful, I would think the best solution would probably be that cooling tray, as much as it irks me to use one.

    Any more suggestions are always appreciated - hate to leave something at "well it just doesn't work and there's nothing that can be done for it".

    Re: Toshiba Satellite fan issue

    My Toshiba P100 is the same. The GPU fan ceased after an update to 10.10 about the time this thread got started.

    There are a load of potential fixes and a load of affected people looking at these forums via Windows in it's many guises, hoping to find a way of running Ubuntu without frying their machines.

    Is there an 'undo' on my last system update to get things back working the easy way? Will there be an Ubuntu update soon to unfix the fix? If I do boot up Ubuntu to check for an update, will my laptop burn before the update completes?

    Horrible show stopper for Linux for me, this. To think that thousands of Ubuntu users' computers are just quietly disabling their cooling systems without warning.

    Re: Toshiba Satellite fan issue

    I subscribed to this post I have a Toshiba Satellite A215-S4807 I have tried toshutils, toshset and even fnfxd. with toshutils, toshset I get required kernel toshiba support not enabled. My fan works but it runs much slower than when I boot to my vista partition. I have looked else where but I have not found a solution as yet if i do i will post it here. oh ya as for fnfxd I now have my hot keys working but it says it has fan controls but i could not find documentation and the forum was down for it so i do not know if there is a additional hot key for fan speed like synaptic manager descriptions indicated

    Re: Toshiba Satellite fan issue

    I ran into this problem too. I updated to Pangolin Penguin, but that did not clear any problems.

    When I upgraded I had all kinds of error messages concerning linux-image and others (15 to 20) giving error exit status 2 and 1 ...

    Not sure what to do!
