    your sig says you are looking for an opus.

    What are you using for power?

    Have you tried a desktop PS on an extension cord or move the PC into the house?

                Try reseating everythign ont he motherboard, including the RAM.
                If that doesn't alleviate the problem, try another stick of RAM.
                Also, if you're able, try the RAM from your CarPC in another computer and run some quality diagnostics like MEMTEST86 on it.
                Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
                How about the Wiki?

                  make sure all usb devices are unplugged. if this solves your issue, disable USB support in bios (IBMs & other brands sometimes have this option...and it only effects bios...usb will work in windows).
