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").
