HP Pavilion a6720f motherboard connection

    Hi! I recently replaced the motherboard on my a6720f, and while it
    works great, there's one thing that has me stumped: There's a little
    wire with a five-hole socket on it coming from a small circuit board
    right over the rear fan (the chassis fan). I have NO IDEA what this
    wire is for, or where it's supposed to go!

    Can somebody help?

    TIA and HAND(Have A Nice Day)!

    Oops! Never mind: it was just the WLAN. It confused me because the
    circuit board is so close to the fan, it looked like it was PART of
    the fan. (It confused HP Tech Support, too. Useless!) It plugged into
    one of those 5-pin USB sockets. I thought all along that that was the
    only thing that connector could go to, but I kept thinking "Why would
    a fan be connected to the USB?"

    Live and learn!
