Hi, depending on how many fan plugs you have on your motherboard, you may need to get an adapter that goes from the fan plug to a molex plug..

Make sure that you connected all of the required power connectors on to the motherboard. Depending on you motherboard, there might be a 4 pin connector next to the CPU that supplies extra power to the CPU. Also if you have a dedicated video card (not integrated to the motherboard), it may need more power as higher end video cards need direct power from the power supply. Also make sure you have your monitor connected correctly.
With that said, I have a feeling that it is the 4 pin CPU connector since it is easy to miss.

On the mother board there are plugins that are used for fan only and nothing else. They are usually located next to the CPU three prong pin inserts. They are programmed to receive information that also includes the thermo read a well you have to have a 3 wire fan setup one to power the fan and the other to read the CPU and fan Temp as well as the speed of the fan. If the fan is not a three wire fan your computer will go on the bleak and will not be able to read the Thermo or the speed configurations.
It is imperative to place the fan in the proper portion of the mother board with the three wire connection in order. In some cases you have to reset the BIOS to be able to read the new fan configurations. Also with this said since you have mentioned that the fan will not spin at all and the other ones do you may have a defective fan. Not sure where you got this but if it will not spin do not install this fan. Check the wiring and also on the mother board it will say CPU fan only or Fan or Fan for CPU make sure that you have the right fan slot. If all else fails you can strip just the rubber on the wires and wiring them together not recommended to get the fan to work for you if you are insistent on using this new fan. If it works from wiring them together you may get a reading on the BOOT fan failure.
Get a fan that works for your board configuration and one that you know works before installing a new fan. This is all I can tell you without seeing the computer itself. Thanks for using FixYa! John

Most motherboards now have a 24-pin power supply connector. If you haven't already found a diagram showing the pinouts of the 20- and 24-pin power plugs, here's one borrowed from a handy site:

pgh_pa_guy_1.jpg

The two plugs are essentially the same, but the 24-pin version duplicates some voltages on the extra pins. The extra pins in the larger connector were meant to provide extra current paths for voltages that see heavy loads from newer processors and motherboard circuitry. Depending on how a motherboard is designed, it might work with a 20-pin plug connected (leaving pins 11, 12, 23 and 24 empty). But typically if the board has a 24-pin connector it needs the 24-pin power supply plug.

Most power supplies have a 20-pin plug with a separate 4-pin section that fastens to it for connection to a 24-pin mobo connector. It typically has one side designed to slide onto the end of the 20-pin plug, essentially turning it into the 24-pin version. This added plug does not have a retaining clamp on its side, so you can tell it from the the 4-pin CPU power plug. The wire colors are also different. For reference, here is the processor power plug, from the same website:

pgh_pa_guy_2.jpg
New motherboard specs call for the separate processor power connector for the same reason the extra pins were added to the power supply connector: to handle the high currents needed by increasingly faster CPUs.

When the motherboard has these connectors, you need to use them all to get everything working. Hope this helps. Thanks to smspowersupply.com for the diagrams, and thank you for using Fixya.

I NEED REPLACE COOLER FAN, MAINBOARD HAVE NO PLUG


Change the power connector on the cooler fan so it can plug into the 12volts on the 4 pin power connector, not the 5volts.

Drive has too any pins


That is perfectly normal. Just make sure that the connector is lined up properly and everything should work just fine. On the drive itself, there is a 'missing pin'. Make sure that the missing pin lines up with the right spot on the connector.

Hope this helps. Please take a moment to rate this solution. Thanks.

Extra wire /fan 3pin hole 1wire where to plug in X 2 fans


If your cpu fan has a 4 pin connector & your mb has a 3 pin you can still use it. Just leave one pin exposed. The extra pin is for a speed control sensor that not all mb's support. The chassis fan has a different connector on the board marked "cha fan". This one is a 3 pin connector. Most of the asus boards have 1 of these. If you wish to run more than one you can either buy a "y" adapter that allows you to connect 2 fans to 1, you could use an extra 4 pin molex to power an extra fan but that would give you no control over the fan, or you could buy a fan controller and hook all your extra fans to it. Hope this helps & please take a moment to rate my solution fixya. Thanks.

13pins "from the inside monitor" "to the VGA 15 pins connector


hai dear,
i checked your problem and found that you open the cover of monitor and you find the two jack of data cable in main pcb and neck card( 2 connector of data cable).plz you cut the connector of data cable and you will find 8 wires in connector.related red(invild extra ground),green(invild extra ground),blue(invild extra ground),black gnd,white,orange,gold(extra gnd) and now you cut the red wire, you will find two wires.so you refix the main red wire pin no-1 of connector and red gnd pin no-6,green main wire pin no-2 and green gnd pin no-7,main blue wire pin no-3 and blue gnd pin no-8.check for the horizental sync and vertical sync wire you should go in main pcb which invild the other connector. there is present in print, h- sync(two wire of h- sync main wire in pin no-13 and other pin no-5) and ver.-sync wire in pin no-14.first you will check the whose h-sync and vert-sync in color and now finally other wires will fix any pin of connector.
