Re: HP Vectra VL400 PC - Power Supply fan error

@Edsel Delmiguez @TMH SE @Peter_F Hi, sorry to bother you guys, but does anyone of you still remember the wirings to solve the problem? I guess I am supposed to put a resistor 100 ohm between the center pin and a side pin (which side?) of the 3-pin fan connector. Then do I also need to connect the fan connector to the PSU? Thank you very much.

The fan connector is actually located adjacent to the motherboard power supply connector. You should disconnect the old power supply from the motherboard. Just jumper the 100-ohm resistor across the 2nd and 3rd pins of the 3-pin fan connector. You can actually use the 3-pin fan connector from the old power supply. Just cut the old connector from the old power supply. Leave about 20 millimeters of wires hanging out from the 2nd and 3rd pins and then solder the legs of the resistor across the pins. Make sure yiu use some shrinkable insulating tubes and you should be good to go! 71AE2EDE-09BA-4867-AE47-C6B13F26D83F.jpegE9E9BD71-7629-442C-A961-049A98BE6F34.jpegDB432BE6-C018-4B6B-8E4A-FBB00384462A.jpeg
