GPU temperature not showing.

I'm not overly concerned about this because I'm buying a new card soon, but I am curious to know what's causing this. I will be giving this card to my brother after I purchase the new one, so I'd like to know what is wrong.

I've tried a whole bunch of applications that should show the GPU temperature (nvidia control panel, GPU-Z, rivatuner, MSI Afterburner and HMonitor), and all of them simply did not show GPU temperature anywhere (which is why I kept trying more and more, thinking none of them were supposed to show GPU temperature). Then I finally saw this in HMonitor:
It's blank. Nothing there. Did the sensors on the card burn out or something? I'm not having any problems with the card, so I'm confused.

Yeah sounds like the sensor craped out. It happens kind of often.

The sensors might have burned out or might have been damaged due to improper handling.
