    You can get a fan that has a 4 pin molex connector on it and it will plug into your power supply connector.

Not so much a reroute as a different source. Do I assume you have perhaps a smaller 3-pin connection and would rather go with a larger 4 pin (or vice-versa)? There are splitters that will let you run a second 4 pin off of a single connection (about $5). If you want a 3-pin, there will be a space for that on your motherboard. Ensure when buying a new fan that it has the proper connector if it doesn't come with both.
If this isn't what you were looking for in an answer, could you explain what it is you're trying to do? Thanks

Where can I get instructions to put unidentified tower together?


You have all the pieces .. motherboard .. cpu .. ram .... heatsink/cpu fan?

Place the cpu into the motherboard socket. Note that it only fits one way. Check the pins on the cpu against the holes in the socket. Hold it in place with the securing catch/lever that you will see on the side.


Smear some heatsink/cpu paste onto the top of the cpu. The heatsink paste is basically a 'heat resistant glue'

Put the cpu cooling fan onto the cpu and screw it into position. Or, it may have a securing lever to hold it in place.

Put the RAM into the ram slots. They only fit one way. Make sure they are firmly in place.

Put the motherboard into the casing. Align what holes you can and use the screws that come with the casing to secure the motherboard.

Connect the casing power supply to the motherboard. Note that it only fits one way.

Connect the cpu cooling fan to the motherboard connector. It only fits one way ..

Next, look at the leads that are just lying loose .. the small female 2 pin connectors will be marked 'PWR' ..'LED'..'RESTART' ... There maybe 8 of them.

On the motherboard identify the block of male 2 pin connectors. The female connectors must connect to them. You'll need good eyes and probably a flashlight, as the writing on the motherboard is small..

If you are connecting a sata hard drive, connect to the motherboard connection that says 0. Connect your dvd drive to '1' Again, notice that sata leads can only fit one way.

Then connect any video or sound cards to the motherboard (if any).
Just look on the motherboard for anywhere the connecting wires will attach. You won't go far wrong.

The casing won't come with instructions of 'what to do' as such. If there were instructions there it would relate to pin/hard drive connections.

What you CAN do is a google search. If, for example, your motherboard is an ASUS 123456 .. search for 'ASUS 123456 motherboard connections'. Or log onto the motherboard manufacturer's website ..

try pull out the ac adapter and battery. Hold down the power button for 30sec-1min. Reconnect ac adapter and see if you can power back on.

CPU fan turns for a few seconds and stops, pc will not turn on. Have tried a good PSU, same issue. Removed all connection to motherboard apart from 20 pin, 4 pin power + cpu fan and PW switch: same issue.


1. First of all Remove dust from your CPU fan and try again if issue has been not resolve

2. Second test your SMPS by the help of Green & Red wire. In case fan is turning properly it mines your SMPS is ok

3. Third & last kindly replace your SMPS For the same.

No power when press the button, power plug is good?


Good day sir/ma'am, chances are that your power supply box is the faulty part. But to make sure let us test your power supply box. here are the steps:
  1. PC is off, open the side panels of the CPU, disconnect the 20(or 24) pin molex connector from the motherboard.
  2. Get a piece of jumper wire, about 4 inches and splice the ends.
  3. On the molex connector, locate the green wire, then using the jumper wire, short it with the black wire (there are lots of black wires there).
  4. look at the exhaust fan, at this point it should be spinning (good). if not here are the other possible outcome: (1) the fan did not spin. replace the power supply box with a new one. (2) the fan spins momentarily then stops, this condition only occur once. Its either your power supply has no load (intermittent symptoms), or the switching controller stage part is faulty. Better buy a new one than have a headache. (3) blows a fuse. replace the entire box.
If you have a good power supply, install it on your CPU and test.

Switched it off last night. this morning no power. won't switch on. not lead have tested. thanks


Verify whether the SMPS fan is working or not, working of this fan indicates that power output +12V is OK, if not you need to check the SMPS, probable reason SMPS fuse blown.
If you observe SMPS fan rotates for few seconds and then stops, this indicates minor repair is required, let me know the symptoms.

If computer is not powering on then open u r cpu and check the SMPS i.e Switch mode power supply which converts AC to DC it gives a output of 5v & 12v in that the 20 pin or 24 pin connector which is connected to the mother board remove that and short the wires Green and Black and make sure to remove all the power connectors i.e,hard disk,Cdrom or cd writer or DVD writer or any other device and one more connecto which is a four pin connector which is connected to the mother board please remove and test the 20 or 24 pin connector by shorting green and black and behind the smps u have a power cord of ac 220v just plug it and switch on if smps fan rotates that means it's fine then the problem willbe on the mother board just try this
