  1. I recently installed Windows 2000 server on a machine that originally had Windows 2000. When the computer loads the bios info, the system fans are fine. When windows starts to load they shut off. I have updated the bios, drivers etc, if any info please help. thank you

    Strange. This probably wont work, but its worth a try, how about just unplugging the fans, running windows, shutting down, sticking them bak in and see what happens? Never know, might do something.

    failing that get som molex to fan converters and run them of the PSU, if you get the right ones, you can still send the speed sensing wire to the Mobo.
