Ubuntu and laptop fan

Since Iam using ubuntu as main main OS for my laptop I noticed that my laptop temperatures are quickly raising in several cases, and no fan is actually spinning up. According to lm-sensors the temperature of my CPU is 70C in some cases, and no fan that is working. Untill I reboot, and the fan is started by the bios. At that moment, the fan is spinning on the max(?) RPM, and isnt slowed down by ubuntu.

Looking at google several people are noticing the same problem, and several solutions are at internet, however, none of these solutions are actually working at my toshiba laptop. Hopefully someone fixes this anytime soon, as iam pretty sure my laptop doesnt like it to be 70C with normal usage…
