So, a couple weeks ago I switched everything into a different case. When doing this, I also purchased two single RPM, 120mm case fans. Now, one replaced the old case fan, a stock 80mm with a 3-pin connector to the MOBO. Now that a fan is not connected to the MOBO, it thinks that it has failed.
The comp is a HP Pavilion a6567c desktop. My issue is that the BIOS does not contain a Hardware Manager for me to be able to disable the system fan check. Now, every time my comp starts, I have to press F2 in order to get it to boot.
The information that I have for the BIOS (that I could find) is as follows:
- American Megatrends
- Version 5.23 (4/21/2008)
- SMBIOS Version (I don't know if this is needed) 2.5
The comp is a 64bit OS, WIN7. The link to the HP page for the comp is:
and they have a link for the MOBO as well.
I don't know if there is an easier fix, or if I can just flash the BIOS with a different BIOS or version, but I would need some help, it's been quite some time since I've done it.
