Firstly I wanted to let you know that I solved the problem by editing the
sensors.conf file. It appears that it wasn't the same problem as with MBM,
and I needed to adjust some sensor values. I apologise if I have wasted any
of your time, all too often I ask for help and then manage to get up the
courage to try and fix it myself. Anyway, thanks to all involved for making
these tools as not only are they useful on the surface, but they encouraged
me to learn more about how they work.

Yours Sincerely
