  • CarPC startup problem

    Yo guys, my car pc is finally in and looks sweet but I got a problem. Last night it worked fine no problems, but this morning it won't startup. I have an Opus 150W on it and the green light on the back blinks but the computer just won't power up. Any ideas what could be a problem? Thanks.

    This is what I got:

    Biostar M7NCG Mobo
    Opus 150W modified for Biostar
    AMD Mobile Athlon XP 2.4
    SB Audigy 2 Soundcard PCI
    DVD/CD-RW Combo drive


    Thanks.

    Do you get any beeps or do the fans spin up? How about an output on the display?

    Is it too hot/cold in the car for the puter to start?

      Have you tried totaly reseting the opus *pull the fuse out wait about 5 seconds then put it back in*

        Could also be temp related. My Opus 150 sometimes won't power on anything under 15F. Of course, running your h/d around that temp isn't a good idea either.....if it'll run at all. Most h/d are rated to work 41F and above.

          Ahh, don't worry about hard drives. Been running it under 15F this past week. Would suspect the Opus as well. Check if its giving voltage out on any of the leads to the ATX Mobo connector.

            Yeah, I've done it too, but like I said, it's still not a good idea to run your drives that low a temp.
