Re: Dell 4600C - Amber light after replacing fan
The "short green pin to short black pin" of your suggestion confuses me. If you can elaborate on how/where I'd find them, I'd greatly appreciate it.
If you disconnec the motherboard from the PSU, the power switch is no longer connected to the PSU. Hence, you can turn the PSU on by shorting (connecting electrically) the green pin to the black pin on the motherboard PSU connector. Take a look and you will get it. You need a paper clip or short piece of wire to make the connection. Make sure not to short anything else out. Connect at least one HD (or CD drive) to the PSU so it has some load.
