Question about Dell (S423) for Dimension 8100 (3F546) Motherboard
When I turn the system on and I am on the diagnostics screen an error pops up saying system fan not found. The fan powers on though. I looked inside and it was plugged into a power connector that you would plug into a disk drive and there was another connector that was not plugged in but there does'nt appear to be any place on the board to plug it in. Can you please give me some direction?
Yes the fan was spinning. I found a soulution though. The right connecter did not fit the motherboard so someone rigged it to run but the motherboard did not see it because it was hooked straight to the atx power supply. I just broke the plastic off of where the original fan was plugged in and with the pins still intact I pushed the replacement fan connector down on it and the motherboard found the fan. Sweet Success!!!!
