  • new to carpc problem.

    hi all. i have built a carpc for my ford falcon. i have mounted a 7inch touch screen in the dash. and have build a itx setup with a Gigabyte GA-D525TUD, 4gb of corsair ram, and a 500gb laptop hard drive. i also have a dual battery system in my car to run the audio setup off of the second battery.

    now i have used for a power supply. but the system is randomly shutting down. i thought i was due to a faulty alternator not charging the second battery but i have to remove the power supply and leave out and then replace to get it to run again.

    i have tried quite a few things but cant fix it and i am at the end of my chain with it.

    also i am running windows 7 on the unit. just wondering is what is a good media player to use and a good gps program for australia.
