Default Very strange temperature readings...

Attached is a pic of my readouts from speedfan. Notice the negative numbers. I don't think they are meerly flipped either, look at Temp 2. There is no way anythign in the computer is +/- 2 C. What is going on? Oh yeah, and a little while ago Temp 3 was rwading 96 C.

Yea, something must be wrong with the program. Try going into the BIOS and check your other temps. -55C is an extremely dangerous temperature.

LOL I don't think my processor would mind running at -55 C (think of the OC possiblities), it definately isn't. My BIOS reports it running at around 50 C (it's a P4), so perhpas it just flipped that reading and competely misread Temp 2. I always thought my temp snsors were junk...
