Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 116890
(ACPI)Critical system temperature reached message during boot.
Last modified: 2015-01-04 17:04:42 EST
Description of problem:
During boot the system displays the message:
Critical system temperature reached (-291 C) shutting down.
The system then immediately shuts off. This is obviously a bogus
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to boot the system.
System displays the above message and powers off.
The system detects the correct temperature and continues to boot.
This occurs on a Dell Inspiron 8000 laptop. The chipset is an Intel
i815. Passing the kernel parameter acpi=off allows the system to boot
This should be fixed in the latest kernel.
(There was another bugzilla on this a week or so ago, which
"went away" with an updated kernel with new acpi).
Please close the bug if the newer kernel fixed it
Fedora Core 2 has now reached end of life, and no further updates will be
provided by Red Hat. The Fedora legacy project will be producing further kernel
updates for security problems only.
If this bug has not been fixed in the latest Fedora Core 2 update kernel, please
try to reproduce it under Fedora Core 3, and reopen if necessary, changing the
product version accordingly.
