Hardware Monitor Applet showing incorrect temp and fan speed


Just installed a fresh copy of Linux Mint 10 (basically Maverick) and set up lm-sensors but in the Hardware Monitor applet it's showing my CPU running a cool 4.5 C and my mobo as 5.5 C. It's also showing the fan speeds at a pokey 2.97rpm and 3.36rpm. Here's an output of "sensors"

Code:
atk0110-acpi-0
Adapter: ACPI interface
Vcore Voltage:     +1.14 V  (min =  +0.85 V, max =  +1.60 V)
 +3.3 Voltage:     +3.28 V  (min =  +2.97 V, max =  +3.63 V)
 +5 Voltage:       +5.07 V  (min =  +4.50 V, max =  +5.50 V)
 +12 Voltage:     +11.92 V  (min = +10.20 V, max = +13.80 V)
CPU FAN Speed:    1979 RPM  (min =  600 RPM)
CHASSIS FAN Speed:1814 RPM  (min =  600 RPM)
POWER FAN Speed:     0 RPM  (min =  600 RPM)
CPU Temperature:   +49.0C  (high = +60.0C, crit = +95.0C)  
MB Temperature:    +42.0C  (high = +45.0C, crit = +95.0C)
The values in the applet also never change even if I use the "stress" command to crank up my CPU usage.

Any advice would be appreciated!

I am using the same asus sensor and I get the proper values from sensors-applet.

Maybe you need to do a lsmod and make sure that you don't have it87 module loaded.

Also I would remove and readd the applet from the panel.
