Re: New Jessie Install: Laptop fan doesn't run

Some more information...

I have confirmed that the fan runs when the Jessie livecd is running, but the fan doesn't run for amd64 or i386 installations. I've compared syslog, daemon.log, and lsmod and found:

syslog: Both livecd and amd64 installation have these lines:
    kernel: [    0.020564] CPU0: Thermal monitoring enabled (TM1)
    kernel: [    0.943898] thermal LNXTHERM:00: registered as thermal_zone0
    kernel: [    0.943904] ACPI: Thermal Zone [TZ01] (50 C)

syslog: There is a slight difference in the following line:
   livecd: kernel: [    3.144083] acpi device:3a: registered as cooling_device0
   amd64: kernel: [    8.712124] acpi device:3a: registered as cooling_device2

lsmod has slight differences:
   livecd: thermal                17343  0
              thermal_sys            27122  3 video,thermal,processor

   amd64: thermal                17559  0
                thermal_sys            27642  3 video,thermal,processor     

In daemon.log, the amd64 installation has the following lines (but they may be the result of installing the sensors package,
which the livecd does not have):
      May  2 08:36:48 amd64 sensors[492]: acpitz-virtual-0
      May  2 08:36:48 amd64 sensors[492]: Adapter: Virtual device
      May  2 08:36:48 amd64 sensors[492]: temp1:         +0.0°C  (crit = +100.0°C)
      May  2 08:36:48 amd64 sensors[492]: coretemp-isa-0000
      May  2 08:36:48 amd64 sensors[492]: Adapter: ISA adapter
      May  2 08:36:48 amd64 sensors[492]: Core 0:       +25.0°C  (high = +100.0°C, crit = +100.0°C)
      May  2 08:36:48 amd64 sensors[492]: Core 1:       +26.0°C  (high = +100.0°C, crit = +100.0°C)

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have done a fresh install of Jessie on an old Acer laptop and the fan never runs, so it overheats. Interestingly, the fan *does* run while Jessie is being installed.

Has anyone had similar problems? Does anyone have suggestions on how to diagnose this?
