asus p4g533-la manual

Specs: Windows XP

I have an otherwise working fan plugged into what's labeled "PSFan 1" It doesn't work at all. I can't seem to locate a manual for this p4g533-LA board, so I'm wondering if there's something in the bios I can turn on or something to that effect.

If you do a seatch/trawl vi google/yahoo etc. usingthe string/term:

asus p4g533-la manual

You will get quite a few hits... Possiby you've done this lready?

If not suggest you do just that.

It would seem this board in used in some HP/Compaq systems; and some Dell Optiplex systems... And some of this hits I browsed do include pointers to possible sources for manual...

What make is the system you have that uses this board?

What exactly does this fan do?

I'd interpret PSFan1 as being a power supply fan (more correctly the connector for a PS fan). If that is correct, the fan may only become powered when the PS (power supply) attains a certain temperature. If the machine is situated in an air conditioned room, this may never (or seldom) occur. Try warming the room and run some resource intensive tasks on the machine, trying to get the PS to higher temps. If the system-set temp is achieved, the fan may well spin.

Please let us know if you found someone's advice to be helpful.

"Sci-guy"...

Sound possible and viable to me...

Thanks for the advice; it actually occurred to me that what you mentioned might be the reason why it doesn't otherwise spin; I'll think I'll try what you've said; it's what makes sense at this point.
