  • Calling all Insight P4-ITX owners

    It seems Insight Solutions (Taiwan) has dissappeared off the face of the planet


    My Board is an Insight P4-ITX rev A...

    I have a blown component on my motherboard which I can repair if I can ID the component.

    It is a small (1cm square, and about 2mm high) component which I'd say resembles a transistor, it has 3 pins and a small heatsink soldered to the board and is directly next to the red SIMM socket.

    There are 3 other parts on the board which are identical to look at but have different serial numbers printed on them.


    If someone could please take a hi-res photo of the offending area I would greatly appreciate it

    I have spent hours using & Google but found nothing useful


    Thanks in advance,

    You're in luck

    Wow, I didnt know anyone else had one. My expierience with Insight was not good either. They would not warranty my board after 2 months. It seems there is something wrong with my IDE controller; every time I begin to copy mass amounts of data, the system locks up hard (mouse doesnt even move). I used 3 diff hard drives and 4 diff sticks of ram, nothing fixed it. It would eventually corrupt windows files. I eventually gave up on it an got a VIA EPIA MII10000.

    I dont know why I still have this board... Maybe to help you out. IDK.

    Well I hope this is what you are looking for and you can fix yours...

      p4-itx owners are few-and-far-between..

      ... I guess that's why Insight went out of business.

        You're a life saver. The item marked Q15 on the board is what I need

        Its an APM2030N
        GEAF9

        ...whatever one of those is But I have a friend who is an electronics test and repair guy who recons he can fix it if I can correctly ID the part

        Cheers fella

          UPDATE:

          Finally got the board fixed, swapped that gizmo that had blown and hey presto... ITS ALIVE

          Anyway, now I need a new cooler mount for it as it broke whilst I was taking it to be fixed



          Has Insight actually gone bust? Can't find any info, only sites reviewing their products
