  • Computer problem with Carnetix 1900

    I just finished my install today with the Carnetix 1900 and an Aopen Mini PC. Everything was working and I got the system to boot up and down twice. I was adjusting some system settings and the computer froze up. After turning it off it came up but wouldn't do anything in Windows. I tried to reboot it and it wouldn't do anything. Now the system won't even give me a bios screen. It has power and spins the fan, but that's it. The hard drive is ok still, but I don't have a way to test the other components. Could the pulse wire have caused a problem? I used the Aopen power kit and I don't know what could have caused the issue. Anybody have any ideas? Thanks in advance for any help.

    What version of AOpen PC are you using?

      I was using the 915-X. It booted up fine twice, then the third time some of the programs were not functioning properly so I tried to reboot to fix the probem and I could not get it to come back up. I have taken the computer apart and all that happens is the fan spins.

        Does it work with your AOpen AC adapter?

          Not anymore it doesn't. All that happens is the fan spins with either the AC adapter or the Carnetix.

            I suggest you go back and examine what might have happened when you made the above adjustments. This doesn't sound like a power problem....

              It doesn't do anything except spin the fan. I can't get to a BIOS screen no matter what I do. It is definately not a software problem. Does the ACPI need to be installed into the P1900 in a specific way or can the cables be interchanged on the jumper?

                Until you get your PC working with your standard AC adapter I suggest you disconnect everything associated with the P1900, including ACPI. Get it back to normal then try to re-connect the ACPI, etc.

                  Everything has been disconnected and I have taken the system apart, but can't get anything to work. I am trying to figure out what caused the problem so when I build a new system, it doesn't happen again.
