This is the fourth laptop i have tinkered with.Its my brother in laws super old HP Dv5000 Series Laptop,which i replaced a couple things,including upgrading the cpu from t2300 to t7200(cheap) .I upgraded the bios beforehand..
My problem is,while i was putting it back together,i managed to pop out the power wire for the fan by accident,but the wires actually seperated from the plug so when i went to put them back in,i basically just guessed...
I ent with the most logical configuration,the way the wires seemed to be facing etc etc. so i thought all was good,but when i went to boot,the windows 7 thingy that spins came up,but would then shut off..Did that three times,before thinking it was a heat problem...So i flipped the laptop upsed down and powered on a couple times and realized the fan wasnt moving at all,ever.. So im pretty sure its the way i have the wires...Can someone look at these pics and tell me which hole the correct wire goes in?? Like the red,the black and yellow? Thank you..I'm so stuck.
