    damn.... Intel D201GLY2A Mini-ITX Motherboard wont boot with m2atx

    since I really wanted to go voom size with my car pc... I bought the new Intel D201GLY2A Mini-ITX Motherboard, 1gig of ram, a 2.5" sata drive, and a voom2 pc case... I have an m2 atx already that worked but now that I hooked it up with this new setup, it won't post... it boots but nothing more...

    The machine works fine with a regular ps though... I used it to install the os and get most of the config stuff done... and it runs great.. soon as I plug in the m2 atx, nothing... just turns on the fans and the drive spins up then down then up then down... and nothing on the screen.. even with the drive disconnected, same thing....

    Happily though, setting up the os on this mobo didn't require sata drivers.. it worked just like an IDE drive would...

    Anyone have any ideas ??? I emailed Andrei about it... hoping he will help me out...

    Cheers...

    Check all your connections.

    is the car running?

    Check the voltage on the 12 volt rail of the PS

    Im in the house.. on the bench with a good battery and a 12Volt trickle charger that's been attached to it for days... all the connections are good.. My meter shows 13volts on the battery too..

    There's something definitely wrong with this m2.. :-(

    c'mon.. im not a noob.. ofcourse the p4 is connected... like i said.. it powers up with a normal psu..

    but to update... I made some proper clean connections to the battery, and the only way it will run, is if I disconnect J8 and power the mobo by shorting the pins myself.
    If I run J8 to the on / off ... when I connect the power to white and then to red sequentially, it turns on the green mobo led.. then the blue one for the zoom case which is connected to my m2... spins up the drive then shuts down... no further...
    even if I short J9... nothing ever happens.....
    nothing changes if I put jumpers on or not on a,b,c or d..

    looks like my M2 has a similar issue that I have heard from other people..

    Yup, sounds like a Power Supply issue. Good luck.

    Is yours the older M2-ATX power supply, or a new one? I purchased a new M2-ATX (160watt version) and it works fine with this MB.

    Maybe your M2-ATX is the older 120 watt version? Not 100% positive on the wattage size.

    ludikris, did you ever get your M2-ATX issue resolved?

    I am experiencing the exact same problem. The fan and Voom pc light comes on for about 3 seconds then it shuts down. The only way to keep it running is to disconnect the wires from the power supply to the motherboard switch then short the switch.

    My PSU is new (just received it with the motherboard and case last week).

    Does anyone else have any suggestions on what to try to get this to work? I also tried various jumper settings, but I get the same results.



    Thanks!
