Speedfan issue

  1. I have an Intel i5-2500k and I'm using SpeedFan 4.47. I have all the latest drivers installed for system including the BIOS. SpeedFan stopped reading my CPU temperature today. I think it happened after I plugged a Seagate Goflex external hard drive into my computer. I uninstalled the drive through device manager, restarted, uninstalled SpeedFan and deleted its program folder, restarted, reinstalled SpeedFan, restarted and it still won't read. All the cores read fine except the main reading which shows 0C. My BIOS and CPUID's Hardware Monitor are both able to show the main CPU temperature fine. I ran Intel Burn Test and checked the "exotics" tab of SpeedFan but none of the temperatures seem to be associated with the CPU other than the 4 core temps. Does anyone know what I should be doing to troubleshoot this further?

    Here's the log from SpeedFans startup:

    Win9x:NO 64Bit:YES GiveIO:NO SpeedFan:YES​
    I/O properly initialized​

    Thanks in advance.

    I would not be to worried about it Speedfan is not the most reliable program.

    I'm using SpeedFan for a Rainmeter plugin which doesn't work with any other hardware monitor on 64 bit windows which is why I want to get it working again.

    Uninstalling and reinstalling the program Is what I would have suggested. , Have you tried uninstalling the rainmeter plugin, The reinstalling. That all I can think of. Maybe someone here will come up with something.
