Will this widget of plasma be supported by hdd temperature? Please advise me what to do, I can’t find the solution of this problem in other websites.
If you need to track the status of your processor like the temperature, for example, you can install a gadget called “All CPU Meter.” It installs perfectly on 64-bit Windows 7. To try it, go to All CPU Meter and download it or click All CPU Meter ZIP to download the ZIP file directly.
Once downloaded, unpack the ZIP file then double-click “All_CPU_Meter_V4.7.3.gadget” to install. At first, you will not have temperature readings from your processor. To display the temperature, you need to download PC Meter 0.4 Beta. Unpack the ZIP file on a new folder on your system drive then right-click “PCMeterV0.4.exe” and select “Run as administrator.”
In PC Meter window, go to “Options” and check “Run On Windows Startup” or check everything. After this, go back to the All CPU Meter gadget, right-click it, and select “Options.” Next, go to “Options” tab then in “Show CPU temperatures,” select “ON (PC Meter).” Set the other options if you like then click “OK” when you are finished.
Another option is CPUID HWMonitor. It is a hardware tracking application that reads the following PC main health sensors:
It can read the hard drive temperature via S.M.A.R.T. You can also get your hard drive’s temperature with PC Tools Performance Toolkit. To get the temperature, in PC Tools, go to “Recovery” tab and click “Repair Drives.” On the next screen, click “Show Disk Info.”
In “Drive Information,” go to “Health” tab then scroll down and select “Temperature.”
This will give you the current temperature reading of your hard drive.
