  • problem with my M4-atx

    hi,
    i have m4-atx power supply that was just fine,
    after changing to a new computer something is wrong
    when i switch the ignition on it takes about 1-2 minutes for the computer to get the startup signal.
    i tried to connect the pc to normal home power supply and it works ok.

    my m4 switchs set to ON - OFF - OFF - OFF

    whats wrong with it?

    thanks

      try connecting the m4-atx to the computer through the usb port so that you can change the settings

      dont know why but the exact thing happened to me when I got the new MB in

            Have you tried pulling the fuse for 30 seconds?
            Check your BIOS settings as well...Resume on AC fail???

              i tried to plug the power off for more then 30 secs its the same?

              i also tried to power it using normal pc power supply at home and it works ok

              the problem exists only with the m4

                I believe WuNgUn was talking about the fuse on the M4. Have you tried pulling that off the M4 for more than 30 seconds to reset the M4?

                  Use the USB program to reset it to factory defaults, THEN completely disconnect it from all power sources, including the USB line and the mobo. Wait 45 seconds and reconnect. It doesn't always register changes unless you disconnect it from power and wait.

                      Also, aren't the mainboard switch pins polarized? I think the M4 is sensative to this...

                          I looked again, but didn't see it, what motherboard are you using now with your M4? It should have a manual that clearly shows which pin is -/+, else sometimes it is printed in small font on the board near that pin.

                              If it's this identical one from Newegg. According to the manual you can see the + and - parts of the power connection.



                              After you're sure the power lead is on proper, I'd reset the BIOS and the M4 fuse.

                              And you're sure all your connections from and including the car battery to the M4 have enough juice to meet the requirements?
