There are multiple temperature sensors in PCs, the CPU usually has one in it. HDs and the motherboard also contain them.
Formatting a computer usually means formatting the HD. What this means is that the HD is set to an empty state. There's a bit more to it than that in reality.

is it NTC or lm35 or pt100?
what is the use of it?

For CPUs it's usually built into the silicon, not sure for HDs.
I'm not going to answer what the use is, see if you can figure that out
Thanks from MMath

Hello,
Why there is different voltage level and high current rating SMPS is used??

ok, here is SMPS used in computer why it is rated for so many voltage potential to operate
and the chip in computer operate at different level?

It's partly due to history, different parts of the circuit needed different voltages.
This is still true to some extent, the main voltages being 3.3, 5 and 12.

why the circuit take upto more than 2Amp like 30Amp 15Amp current?

My CPU takes up to 180 amps at 1.3V, it uses the 12V line for this, so that's still 20 amps (it uses switch mode regulation for efficiency). My graphics card is similar.

Hello,
Which chip is at 1.3V and why it take upto 180Amps
