Corrupted BIOS?
Quick question? Can corrupted bios settings cause a laptop cooling fan & graphics card fan to not function? I replace a mother board connected everything back up it runs, fans turn on at boot for few secs then shut off for the rest of the time. Can it be the bios?

No luck updated corrupted bios a13 with new bios same version fans still not running, I would like to mention that both fans did run during the flashing process. I'm downgrading bios tomorrow see if that works, any ideas? Can it be bad power supply?

It's not the PSU.
The fans get power from the motherboard via 3 or 4 pin connectors.
So if the motherboard works, the fans should aswell.

Is there some other connectors you can use on the motherboard?

Have you left the laptop on long enough for the temps to get hot enough for the fans to actually turn on?

I would download a monitoring software, such as OHM, to see what your temps are reaching to and if your fans spin up.
