I get the following output when running sensors on my Ubuntu 12.04 server

$ sensors
Adapter: ISA adapter
Core 0:        -3.0°C  (crit = +90.0°C)
Core 1:        +5.0°C  (crit = +90.0°C)

Adapter: PCI adapter
temp1:        +54.0°C  (high = +100.0°C, crit = +95.0°C)

Obviously its incorrect, how do I fix it?

I'd recommend running sensors-detect again as root. – lornix Jul 6 '12 at 5:45
Try reducing the flow of liquid nitrogen. – Mechanical snail Jul 6 '12 at 6:52
sorry, no effect – Zeophlite Jul 8 '12 at 8:58
Mine is reporting +27.8 and -268.5. :/ – Veedrac Jul 26 '15 at 21:25

You can fix it by unloading that module. It is obviously not available/connected.

I do not know what kind of server you have, but finding ISA adapters is highly unlikely in anything produced the last 10 years.

Its an ION330 ( ) What's the nouveau-pci-0100? – Zeophlite Jul 6 '12 at 3:01
I also have an ISA adapter built into my Mini-ITX-board. See my own question for details… – Ethan Leroy Mar 20 '14 at 22:39
@EthanLeroy: you probably have a module that uses an emulated ISA bus or similar, on a recent Mini-ITX board I can guarantee you that it's not a physical ISA bus. – Wolph Mar 21 '14 at 9:25
@Wolph Maybe. But the software doesn't care if it's a real ISA bus or an emulated one. – Ethan Leroy Mar 21 '14 at 10:16
