But not impossible -- that is why I asked.

Good. Now, verify that the rear chassis fan is connected to the connector labelled "chassis".

Is there more than one connector labelled "chassis" ?

 

> So no they are not mixed up.

 

Good.  Got another system with the identical motherboard? 

Can you pull the chassis-fan from that other system, and connect it to the "bad" motherboard?

The rear chassis fan is in the power supply so all I would be doing is exchanging power supplies?

Sorry, but I am not now, and never have been, an employee of HP.

Therefore, I cannot oblige.

 

Usually, the "rear-chassis-fan" has a 3-wire cable to the power-connector labelled "chassis" on the motherboard.

 

Normally, the fan inside the power-supply draws its own power -- not needing a "loop-back" connection.

and on the same page:

where CHFAN2 supplies power to the REAR CHASSIS FAN assembly, not to the fan inside the power supply (not shown).

(where CHFAN2 supplies power to the REAR CHASSIS FAN assembly, not to the fan inside the power supply )

the CHFan2 connection is not used in this application as the rear fan is power by the main power supply(white 4Pin)above it

But the BIOS settings have enabled the motherboard to check that connection, and so the error-message is generated, because nothing is connected.

 

As an "experiment", temporarily connect a chassis-fan to that CHFAN2 connector, and reboot, to see if the error-message is still produced.
