Ok, This is my first carpc. But i know enought about electronics that I know somethings wrong here. I hooked up the carPC EZ V2.4 with my carputer last night to test it out. (its currently in a spare case i had around) just to test it. i already have the power invertor wired and all the other wires ran. i hooked everything up. i gave the accessory wire power (mimicing the car turning on) and after a few seconds the power invertor turns on, allong with the appropriate led. a few seconds later the computer turns on. a few seconds later the amps. a few seconds later the screen. but as soon as the screen gets to the user password screen, before i can type anything it says shutting down and turns the computer off, then a few seconds after its off it turns back on and just repeats forever. if i disconnect the wires that goto the motherboard power switch and hook it up to the real switch and turn the comp on manually it works fine. so it has to be the unit turning the computer off by itself, but everything else stays on fine and the car is running at 12.4 v cuz i just charged the battery and have a digital volt meter. So does anyone know why this would happen? because the whole point of the unit i paid $75 for is that it will turn the comptuer on and off. if i have to do it manually or make my own relay thing then i could have done that for the rest of the stuff too. so can anyone help me diagnos this problem?
