My DL320 server, which I use as my Windows Home Server and has been fantastic until now, wouldn't boot the other day and keep beeping madly, all because one of the 6 internal fans is broken.  I have removed  the fan and searched in vain for a replacement.  It has a funny connector to the motherboard (the fans are attached in pairs, front to back, three across and each pair has a 7 pin connector to the board).

I have tried pressing key combinations and restarting with the fan connected to get the system working, but it wont boot without the fan connected.  I cannot get into the BIOS to change the settings either (unless I am doing something wrong)

Does anyone have an idea how I can get around this?  Either by getting a new fan, or fooling the system into not alarming and booting into Windows?  There is still plently of air-flow and the fans never speed up during normal use so I am not concerned about over-heating.

Any help greatly appriciated!

Yeah, I saw the most common item with the whole bracket with all the fans attached, which if not available in NZ would be expensive to ship. Its almost cheaper to buy another whole server off Trademe!

I shall ask the ladies at work to price one up from HP through us (service agent) for you.

Not necessary, but can 100%confirm theres no individual fans I can get if you have the model string and Serial handy. Can tell what parts were included ex factory.

Hey, that would be fantastic!

And does your second sentance mean you cannot get the fans no matter what?  They do have model numbers on them, and they are not an HP part, however I don't have them on me right now.  I will have a look when I get home.

I have the part numbers.  The fan is a SUNON PMO1204PQB1-A
HP is 293366-001, but that's for the whole cross-bar!

Yep, by the looks its an entire unit. When we get the unit Serial number and config code/mfg number we can tell what parts are used in them ex factory is what I meant :)

Either way, this ones a complete rail. We can source one, but its not cheap as you suspected. $230+gst.
