It sounds to me as though you are looking in the wrong place :-)  There is 
usually a disk with the motherboard, that supplies drivers for any built-in 
peripherals.  Often, too, there is a hardware monitoring program on the same 
disk.  Check the disk - if it's there, install it.  It won't interfere with 
linux, although the results will only be visible in windows.

ISTR that in the first message you said you were worried about those 'ALARM's.  
It only means that an alarm is set for those features.  It's 
user-configurable, so you can set it to when seems sensible for your 
hardware.  Take a long look at /etc/sensors.conf.
