They sure help here, otherwise the fan makes it sound like my Sun U30.

If "failing to set sensor limits" is what I think it is, then it's no joke. You should check whether this means that your thermal trip points are messed up (or absent altogether); if they are, your laptop may eventually overheat and die. (However, your fan being so loud is actually a good sign.) The *passive* trip point is particularly crucial in this context. I jotted down some indications about trip points and such on the website you'll find in my signature (once there, look for the heading "Laptops In Heat").
