  • moving cards causes problems

    I have my carputer set up in my room and when i have it running and bump one of my cards (pci or apg) the computer shuts down and says i had a hardware malfunction. I'm wondering if this a common and if it is will just gluing them in place help when i have the computer in the car?

    This is exactly what I'd expect would happen... They're certainly not hot-swappable devices.
    But don't take it from me! here's a quote from a real, live newbie:

      Hot glue will help them stay in place and is non-conductive.
      Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
      How about the Wiki?



      Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

        ok, i wasn't sure how the hot-glue would hold up to the heat in summer.

          you can use industrial hot glue which has higher melting point and should stand up fine to the summer heat.
