hello İlhan,

your whole story sounds to me a bit like if the hardware has broken
coincidentally at the same moment as you wrote to the flash chip. Not
starting the fans at power-up is a quite uncommon symptom because
normally this is not handled by the host software.
if i understood your mails correctly you have re-used the rest of the
hardware with the new board and everything works?
IMHO the only things that could make the fans not spin are:
- broken power supply and/or connections
- broken mainboard (voltage regulators, traces, capacitors etc)
- shorts by lost screws etc.
- broken/dusted or unconnected fan :)

i guess this wont help you much, but besides the steps you tried
already, i dont know anything either, sorry.

Kind regards/Mit freundlichen Grüßen, Stefan Tauner
