comment Are there 3-pin to 2-pin power connectors for motherboards
+1 Thank you. The motherboard is a low-end ASUS MB: AM1M-A. I checked again the MB manual, but couldn't find a 3-pin connector. However, with your encouragement, I did do as you suggested and managed to rewire one wire into the middle hole. I had seen it suggested elsewhere but mistakenly thought mine were soldered solidly into place. Thanks.

@JasonC Thank you for the downvote. Searching the webs is always my first step. I had searched with google like you suggest (I actually did so twice before asking here), but found mostly people with similar problem but I didn't find a definite answer or solution (at least none that I understood so far). I thought the electronics Q&A web site would be a good place to query the collective knowledge of its members.
