Here's to a speedy car PC recovery
So yesterday my carpc turned off unexpectadly...check a few things and came to the conclusion that the m2 atx power supply had died...pulled the carpc and opened up the voom2 case and out drops a tiny little smd diode or transistor...hmm this isnt good....
Part looks to be in good condition but i cannot find where it went.so i test the power supply...all o.k.
Test the jetway NF9G-QM77 and its lifeless!!!! Really not good.
Thank god i purchased it from mini-box.com.au and have the recipt and box...it has a 1 year warranty mabee more so its going back..
Hoping for a speedy turnaround.
When you get a replacement system make sure you get an industrial grade motherboard if you can. A few of us use a more heavy duty motherboard made for harsh environments. Unless of course they just give you a new board straight up. Sounds like if you have loose components that it had some bad solder joints regardless.
Anything placed in a vehicle should be rated for some rather extreme temps.
It was a industrial board..... Jetway JNF9G-QM77 Mobile I Series.did spot some other suspect solder joints yesterday.
Yikes, I have that same industrial grade motherboard in my car. It's been installed for about a year and running fine, in a Voom2pc case. It's been stable even when the car's inside temperature was 40C, but the board is rated for operation at 60C and everything is soldered with that high melting temp solder. If a component came off, that component must have gotten real hot.
There's also is a possibility it's something from your memory module that got hot and melted off, falling onto the motherboard to take it out. Better inspect the memory too!
I will check that rray.i cannot see any physical heat damage on the board.the smd chip doesnt look hot either...also its winter here at the moment...and its dam cold!!
Still hoping its a once off problem.as its fairly high power setup but its only just idleing along that was its intended construction type..high power low overheads to keep it all cool.
Ohh mine is about 10 months old now too.was new in box when recieved
I had a small cap come off my jetway board, with no apparent reason after 2 years of service. I found its location and tried to reinstall but no good mine was near the atx 20pin connector. Still I bought another jetway board, this was a factory refurb for 1/2 the price of the original board same model. SNO
Get well card in the mail...upgrading is always fun.
