Sorry to hear about your trouble.
Yours is the first report we've had about a Toshiba laptop.
Perhaps if you go into the BIOS to the sensors screen or
let the battery run down it
will re-initialize your sensors device?
But hopefully the trouble is unrelated to any probing
by our software.
Good luck.
