    HP 2540p and lm_sensors/fancontrol

    Hi,
    i have one HP 2540p with i7 Processor and try to make fancontrol working because the fan i always on.

    sensors-detect gives me:

    Code:
    root@linux:~# sensors-detect
    # sensors-detect revision 5984 (2011-07-10 21:22:53 +0200)
    # System: Hewlett-Packard HP EliteBook 2540p (laptop)
    # Board: Hewlett-Packard 7008
    
    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

    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

    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 `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
    Sorry, no supported PCI bus adapters found.

    Driver `coretemp':

    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 cpuid... OK
    sudo pwmconfig:
    Code:
    root@linux:~# sudo pwmconfig
    # pwmconfig revision 5857 (2010-08-22)
    This program will search your sensors for pulse width modulation (pwm)
    controls, and test each one to see if it controls a fan on
    your motherboard. Note that many motherboards do not have pwm
    circuitry installed, even if your sensor chip supports pwm.
    
    We will attempt to briefly stop each fan using the pwm controls.
    The program will attempt to restore each fan to full speed
    after testing. However, it is ** very important ** that you
    physically verify that the fans have been to full speed
    after the program has completed.
    
    /usr/sbin/pwmconfig: There are no pwm-capable sensor modules installed
    So, i know that is crucially to make lm-sensors working to make fancontrol working. But i found no help... So i am thankful for any help

    Re: HP 2540p and lm_sensors/fancontrol

    the fan i always on
    Which video card does it have?

    Have you tried any kernel boot parameters? I'd suggest acpi_osi= and acpi_osi=Linux. See the link in my signature on how to temporarily test kernel boot parameters.

    Yes i tried some:
    GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT_QUIET=true
    GRUB_TIMEOUT=10
    GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR=`lsb_release -i -s 2> /dev/null || echo Debian`
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX=""
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="acpi_enforce_resources=lax"
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash acpi_osi=\\\"Linux\\\""
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash acpi=copy_dsdt"
    The Card is: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator HD Graphics, GMA HD, or Intel HD Graphics (or GMA5700MHD)
    Thanks!

    Re: HP 2540p and lm_sensors/fancontrol

    What is your current kernel boot command line:
    Code:
    cat /proc/cmdline
    I'm not exactly sure what happens when you use multiple GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="" and GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT lines. I have a feeling only the last one is used.

    Re: HP 2540p and lm_sensors/fancontrol

    I just reinstalled the system. Not sure what should i load to have lm-sensors? acpi or i8k (but, doesnt it works only with dell?)
    So, after i load the parameter i should run sensors-detect or pwmconfig?
    Thanks and regards.

    I noticed that temp 3 is actually FAN speed-as soon as it goes of, it stays 0, and for every further step the temp goes 10 grades up. But no idea what schould i do with this info.

    Code:
    acpitz-virtual-0
    Adapter: Virtual device
    temp1:         +0.0C  (crit = +127.0C)
    temp2:         +0.0C  (crit = +127.0C)
    temp3:        +11.0C  (crit = +128.0C)
    temp4:        +39.0C  (crit = +127.0C)
    temp5:         +0.0C  (crit = +115.0C)
    temp6:        +32.2C  (crit = +128.0C)
    temp7:         +0.0C  (crit = +128.0C)
    temp8:        +42.0C  (crit = +128.0C)
    temp9:        +48.0C  (crit = +128.0C)
    temp10:       +59.0C  (crit = +128.0C)
    
    coretemp-isa-0000
    Adapter: ISA adapter
    Core 0:       +43.0C  (high = +95.0C, crit = +105.0C)
    Core 2:       +41.0C  (high = +95.0C, crit = +105.0C)

    I found here some help-can control fan but just for a short time. So if someone can help me i would be thankful.

    Sorry for the delay in responding.
    It looks like only the last instances of GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX and GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT are being used. I know you have re-installed your system and are looking at fan control mechanisms, but you might want to try a couple of kernel boot parameters to see if they help with the fan control. The first would be acpi_osi= and the second one would be acpi_osi=Linux. Make sure you try them separately and that you only have one GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX and GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT line in your /etc/default/grub command. Also make sure to run "sudo update-grub" after the change.

    To confirm that the boot parameters are beign used, report back the results of:
    Code:
    cat /proc/cmdline
    ...after each attempt. See if either of these help with fan control.

    Code:
    linux@linux:~$ cat /proc/cmdline
    BOOT_IMAGE=/boot/vmlinuz-3.2.0-38-generic root=UUID=725ffdaa-2101-4bd9-bc6e-bf5e87b3eb8d ro quiet splash vt.handoff=7 acpi_osi=
    with this otpion i can not adjust screen brightness
    Code:
    sudo pwmconfig
    gives me
    Code:
    /usr/sbin/pwmconfig: There are no pwm-capable sensor modules installed
    After
    Code:
    Sudo sensors-detect
    no changes too


    acpi_osi=Linux:

    Code:
    BOOT_IMAGE=/boot/vmlinuz-3.2.0-38-generic root=UUID=725ffdaa-2101-4bd9-bc6e-bf5e87b3eb8d ro quiet splash vt.handoff=7 acpi_osi=Linux
    I can adjust brightness fine.
    Code:
    sudo pwmconfig
    gives again:
    Code:
    /usr/sbin/pwmconfig: There are no pwm-capable sensor modules installed
    Code:
    linux@linux:~$ service module-init-tools start
    start: Rejected send message, 1 matched rules; type="method_call", sender=":1.50" (uid=1000 pid=2940 comm="start module-init-tools ") interface="com.ubuntu.Upstart0_6.Job" member="Start" error name="(unset)" requested_reply="0" destination="com.ubuntu.Upstart" (uid=0 pid=1 comm="/sbin/init")
    after
    Code:
    sensors-detect
