Optiplex GX60 Fan Not Working

Hi,

The fan is not working in my Optiplex GX60. I have bought a replacement, but that does not work either. Presumably, there is a fault on the board and it is not supplying power properly.

 

I hit upon the idea of powering the 12v fan directly from the computer supply (via an adaptor lead), but the connector on the fan is not "standard" - so the lead does not fit.

 

Do I have any more options?

 

TIA,

Stephen

Re: Optiplex GX60 Fan Not Working

As described in the following diagrams, 12 volt is available from the power supply leads, so you do have the option of cutting and splicing from an extra optical drive connector or tapping into another lead elsewhere.
