  • GASP M10000 won't power up!

    I was playing with this earlier this morning and computer was up and running playing winamp. Then it suddenly shut down. complete power off. So during lunch I powered it up and was installing MBM5. mid install it powered down again. Now it won't even power up!

    Help

    uh-oh.

    If you want some help with it, post some details. What are you using to power it (hopefully not an unpatched 90W Opus)?

        using M10000, with PW-70A+ and a 12V DC-DC regulator. Yes I know it doesn't work when I crank. I'm not caring about that right now.

          i think i mighta found ONE problem. i just checked my DCDC regulator and found the output to be 14V and not 12. DAMMIT. does the m10000 or the pw70a+ have overvoltage cutoff? I hope so. So I'm really hoping the overvoltage is activating cause it'd be really bad if i fried something.

            14vdc without a load sounds normal...if you measure it under load it will drop a volt or so...The AC brick I have puts out almost 15v.

            I have the PW-70...don't know about A or A+

                  I don't have enough info to really say this, but perhaps you fried the PSU? I'm not sure how yours works tho, so I can't really say..

                    I had about the exact same thing happen. I was messing around with the system changing the power supply to the accessory line. When I put it all back together I just got the long beep noise. I tried several different types of memory but nothing worked.

                    I think what happened was my 12v power some how came in contact with the ram and got shot threw the board. There is no physical evidence but I'm pretty sure this is what happened.

                    As for the PW-70 and over voltage it does have it but it is a lot higher, somewhere above 15 volts, might be 18. I use the PW-70 wired straight to my car without any regulation. I read somewhere that the Epia doesn't use any 12v power so it's not essential to regulate it. Of course you have to stick with laptop drives and CD-drives. Now, I'm not a hundred percent sure where I read this or if it is even true. But I did use it unregulated without any problems all summer long. My voltage output measured up to 14.5v.

                    If the motherboard is fried you could try contacting VIA and getting an RMA number. I got one and I will be sending in my board tommorow.

                        No questions or receipt, but I think that's because I went indirectly and a guy hooked me up. You shouldn't need a receipt but they might want it to prove the age of the board. I wasn't actually asked any questions because I think the guy I contacted just forwarded it to the RMA department and they just assumed it was approved or something.

                          hmm....well i bought mine off ebay from a guy, it was opened in new condition, no receipt though. I have recently tried to contact him to see if he has the original but, havent heard from him. Im sure its under warranty still......hmm what should I do, call VIA?

                            I think you at least need the ram for it to post...does the cooling fan spin?

                            Is everything else detached from the system?
