HI,

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.

Don't get your panties in a wad just yet.

Here is a pic of a DV5000T fan, click on the pic to zoom it. The connector is visible and shows the wire order.

well ive tried every variation of these wires and cant get a thing...i tested the fan with a 3 volt battery and it works...Anyone have any ideas?


Unfortunately i clipped a couple of the wires...Found a couple cheap ones on ebay for a few bucks..

My main concern now is,is there any reason why a bios/software change could make the fan not work?
