  • DS-ATX : Just installed, not behaving correctly

    When I start the ignition, the power supply starts the motherboard for a second, then cuts power causing the fans to stops. They don't even get a rotation. The light on the power supply is a solid red and the motherboard is getting some power to it as the LAN adapter shows an orange light on the motherboard and the CDRW/DVD-Rom is blinking.

    I'm using an MB896 board from iBase. I believe this is the same or similar to the one Red GTI v6 is using.

    Any clues of what I should look for to help with this issue?

    Try just powering the motherboard, no hdd, or dvdrom, nothing but the mobo. Sounds like the PSU is overloaded.

      I will definitly give that a shot. I only have the harddrive, dvd-rom, and a wireless card plugged into the mini-pci slot. This power supply should be able to handle that easily.

        You might also try powering the whole ball of wax with a standard-issue ATX power supply, just to make certian that everything is in working order.
        Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
        How about the Wiki?

          Yeah, that's sounds like a good plan too. It was working on the bench before I installed it.

            ok my bet is you are either not using a 4 PIN p4 cable and your mobo requires that..or you mobo has a reversed polarity turn on switch

              Definitly somthing good to check. My motherboard does not have the 4 pin plug on it and I have tried the power switch in both directions. But still good ideas!

                    There is a P4 4pin connector there!

                    Its touching the main PSU connector

                          You are right, it does look like the connector is on the motherboard in that picture. When I go grab some lunch, I'll check it out. Maybe this picture isn't accurate.

                          Obviously, I didn't closly look at the picture before I posted it.

                            I just went down to the car, looks like the picture is inaccurate. I'll post the picture of MY motherboard when I can get to a mini-USB cable. Everything appears to be accurate except the P4 power connector. On the bench the system ran fine without plugging in a P4 power connector.
