Question about HP Compaq Motherboard
I replaced the fan inside the Power Supply and am trying to determine
the placement, if any, for the connector labelled "P9". It has 2 wires,
one black and one white. I may have inadvertantly disconnected while
working on the unit.
Not every wire that comes off the power supply is used so this might be worrying over nothing. I'd give a quick look at all your components inside- especially the cd or dvd players as well as the CPU fan. If it looks like everything is okay, power it up. When your system runs its POST (power on self test), it'll tell you if something critical is missing. If not, use it as normal. If something really is unplugged, later on you'll find out because it either won't work or a function of it won't work.

Tips for a great answer:
The fan motor is held in place with screws
and possibly a mounting bracket. Remove the bracket and the
screws and pull the motor back away from the housing.
The fan motor is connected by two or three wires. Label the wire placement on the motor before disconnecting the wires. The wires are connected to the terminals with slip-on connectors or a plug. Firmly pull the connectors off of the terminals (do not pull on the wire). You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers to remove the connectors. Inspect the connectors and the terminals for corrosion. If the connectors are corroded they should be replaced.
Remove the fan blade from the old motor and install it onto the new motor. Connect the wires to the new motor and install the motor into the bracket or housing. Make certain that all of the screws are tightened securely.
Replace the access cover (if any) and plug in the refrigerator.
