    Hi guys,
    I have a problem, my computers PC Fan gave out, its an old PC Dell Precision 760
    The PC Fan not the CPU Fan gave out it is connect to the Motherboard to 5 pin connector...the seems to connect only to 4 pins.

    The thing is a bought a cheap Fan that connects to the PC´s power supply directly and is working perfectly.
    There is no option that I see for the MB to ignore the onboard FAN connector. So everytime the PC starts it says there is no Cage Fan to continue press F1, if not F2 to go to Setup.

    There is nothing in the BIOS, I have put to ignore all errors....

    I need a solution because the person who uses the computer is not happy with the constante need for pressing F1.

    Any solutions? can I put some jumpers on the pins? Trick?

    I had the same problem on a Dell a couple of years ago except it was a thing about something on the front panel. I have forgotten exactly what it was. We saw no solution for it short of buying a new case so the owner is still pressing F1.
