You can get extensions normally from a local computer shop or order them online. Be careful take your time. I have seen Motherboard fry if they are not correctly configured from the power supply.

I have NEVER known a motherboard fan socket to be too far away from the component it's meant for. The fan must have been put in wrong. Take it out and put it in the right way.

This model (as well as many other Dell desktops) has a DUAL SPEED CPU fan. If the motherboard detects that the CPU temp is running hot it will increase the speed of the CPU fan to lower the temp of the CPU. You should do a Google search for the correct CPU fan and purchase it and install it back into your computer.

Won't start fuel pump replaced new tank and relay have fuel after fuel filter runs if I put fuel down throttle body. this is on a4,3.


Nephew had similar problem on different vehicle - had spark to plugs, limited gas, everthing else checked. I did one thing first - check for two fuel filters - one in the tank was only screens and one in the line itself. Found a little in line filter just outside of engine compartment under car next to frame that looked like it had never been changed - partially clogged - replaced it.Almost ran but would not keep running. I had rotor and cap pulled - found that the screw holding rotor in place was loose. The rotor edge next to plug wire leads was chopped up and the cap's plug wire leads were heavily oxidized. Replaced them and got it running but a little rough. Pulled the spark plugs and found gaps from 25 - 100 ---replaced the plugs with correct gapping and it ran really well.

Remote control will not turn on fan


Do you have the correct type of fan connected to the motherboard ?
For fan control to work you must be using the type of fan that has at least three wires in the connector plug (if it has four wires that is ok too) but if it only has two wires then it will not works since the third wire is the control wire that the motherboard uses to detect fan speed and so on...
Fans that connect through a connector on the power supply will not work either must be conected to motherboard plug on the motherboard itself with at least three wires

hope this info helps

NOTE: if you are sure you are using the correct type of fan then check BIOS power/hardware monitor settings to see if the fan is connected to the correct plug on the motherboard and to verify it is being detected properly and fan speed setting is correct.

My cpu fan is not working in my Gigabyte GA-8ST667 system can anyone tell me why am sure the cpu fan is good


Hello elscomputers: If you are sure that there is no other issue with the motherboard -- It was working before the CPU Fan/Heatsink stopped working. Other than making sure that it is correctly connected as shown below -- attached to Pin 1 with all three pins connected (not off to the side by one pin), you can assume it's bad (they do wear out). The cost of a new cooler is pretty minimal and I would just replace it.

My custom built computer has a the m7vig400 installed and i can't formatt my new harddrive because the fan on top of my processor will not come on why ? it came on with a 16 head hard drive how do i...


First, make sure you plug the power from the fan back into the motherboard & try it again. Did you do anything else besides just pulling out your old hard drive & putting the new one in? The CPU fan is completely independent of the CPU fan. You can start up you system without ANY hard drives & the CPU fan will come on if it's plugged in & the power supply is working etc. If you make sure the fan is plugged in correctly & the fan still doesn't come on, I suggest you temporarily put your old hard drive back in & firing things up. I'm sure you will find that the fan still doesn't work.

All that said, if the CPU fan isn't working (& everything else is), then it's a bad fan or motherboard. It's not necessarily a bad motherboard. Sometimes there are jumpers that control that sort of thing. I'm not sure exactly what that motherboard does. I have had this exact motherboard for years & as long as the fan is plugged in (& the power supply is working), when you start things up, the fan comes on.

One last thought, try flipping the power supply switch in the back to reset the power supply before you press the button in the front. Good luck...

New build turned on power no beeps no video nothing but fans


make sure that your little speaker is plugged in to the correct pins. This gets many people every time. If the speaker isn't plugged into the correct slot you're definitely not going to get anything to work...yeah i know...a silly speaker...you can have quite a few things plugged incorrectly and things will still work but if you have the speaker plugged into the wrong one...then ur dead in the water...find the little cylindrical speaker and try plugging it into a different slot...really look on that board for it. Should be labeled JFP2..connect the speaker to the 4 pin side of that 7 pin connection.

Truth be told my friend took it apart w/out the service manual and put it back together and now it overheats. The original problem is the techs at Staples said my mouse went crazy and still is.


This would be a hard one to trouble shoot without the computer in front of you. Depending on the manufacturer of the motherboard there is usually two or three fan power plugs on it. One is marked CPU and is usually on the top edge of the motherboard, the CPU fan has to be plugged in there, the others are usualy marked CHAS, SYS or MB for the accessory fans in the front of the computer, if it has one, and sometimes another for a fan in the rear of the computer. These plugs usually have three pins each. two wires for power for the fan and an RPM wire for the motherboard speed readout on the computer screen. As for the mouse going crazy, try and uninstall it and then reinstall the drivers. This will sometimes correct the problem, or buy a new mouse, they are cheep. If that doesn't cure the problem then there is something more seriously wrong with the system. Good Luck, RAC

Power Reaching the MB but NOT reaching the cpu fan


Either replace the line to the fan (or get a new fan with a longer cord )or leave the side door of your CPU off a bit and maybe put a fan beside it.

Motherboard problem..


It sounds like the front panel wire has either come loose from the motherboard or is plugged into the wrong spot. Recheck the motherboard to see if the wires are in the right place & not loose. Hope this helps.

CPU fan stops, computer shuts down


You must have the CPU fan plugged into the CPU fan power connector or the system can not monitor the fans speed. Your PC will shut down & give you that message. (The fan must be connected to the correct power plug).
If when you did replace the CPU's fan & had to remove the heat sink, which is where the fan screws into & did not clean the old thermal grease off the CPU & heatsink & replace with new thermal grease than your CPU will still overheat. If you add thermal grease over top of old thermal grease your CPU will over heat.
This is all a balancing act. If any one is not correct your system will shut down. (This is better than killing the CPU).
To remove old thermal grease use a clean cloth damped with house hold alcohol & use the same on the bottom of the heatsink. Please allow plenty of time for the alcohol to dry.

Good Luck! Take your time.
