  1. Hi!
    All 3 Fan Connectors on my HP ZE5000 Laptop Motherboard burnt. Could someone advise me where to get 5V on the motherboard to power up the fans or is there a way to make the connectors work again. I can solder the wires from the fans to the motherboard if i know where to get 5V 0.3A from. Any help would be appreciated.

    Check the connectors for either floppy-drive or CD-drive. In their pin-out is guaranteed a +5V.
    Question is, WHY did ALL fan-connectors burn out? Are all those fans burnt themselves as well?
