Try: find /proc /sys | grep -ie brightness -e light -e lux -e lumin On this laptop (a MacBookPro), it reveals (among other things): /sys/devices/platform/applesmc.768/light which is neither over PCI or USB. You could try the same after sudo modprobe -a tsl2550 isl29003 isl29020 apds9802als apds990x bh1770glc bh1780gli which are drivers for various ...

Use sensors-detect to configure the missing sensors, if they are available. At my machine, there is a second sensor device handling the per-core sensors: [...] coretemp-isa-0000 Adapter: ISA adapter Physical id 0: +54.0°C (high = +80.0°C, crit = +98.0°C) Core 0: +53.0°C (high = +80.0°C, crit = +98.0°C) Core 1: +53.0°C (high = +80.0°C, ...

i3status Using i3status I believe you can change your configuration slightly so that it get's the CPU's core temperature directly from the /sys by providing a path to it's value. So change your rule to something like this: order += "cpu_temperature 1" #... cpu_temperature 1{ format = "T: %degree °C" path = ...

A few links: http://www.kernel.org/doc/menuconfig/drivers-misc-Kconfig.html (to access data from the sensor the kernel must know about the device!) http://forum.notebookreview.com/dell-latitude-vostro-precision/475324-e6410-owners-thread-91.html I do not know what the ALS is in your particular case, but as @January said, you may start from the lspci -Q ...

You could also use the GUI application XSensors. It will show you multiple tabs. One of them will be atk0110 as in the output you posted. One of the other tabs should display the core temperatures (may have the name coretemp). Image from linuxtoolkit.blogspot.com

It depends on what is the output of sensors. If yours is something like mine: % sensors k10temp-pci-00c3 Adapter: PCI adapter temp1: +44.0°C (high = +70.0°C) then you can use the following script, adapting it accordingly. Besides TEMP_STOP and TEMP_START, you should change the regular expression that filters the line from sensors you want to use. ...

Your computer does seem to be overheating, you are past the high and close to the critical values for some of your cores. You should try cleaning it out or switching governors. Now, as for the 511 degrees I am pretty sure that if your computer were actually that hot you would know it, that is more than twice as hot as an oven. Unless you can fry eggs on ...

Follow the specification your MB is based on the iTE IT8728 chip which is not supported by lm-sensors. Sorry.
