    Is anyone else having this problem all of a sudden?:

    The AA number has not been programmed...
    Press enter key to continue

    On startup? Even from hibernate I get this message every time. Not only do I not want to press enter EVERY time the computer boots up, but I also don't even want to have to keep a PS/2 keyboard in my car at all times. This is very frustrating.

    I have read that a BIOS update fixes the problem, but I can't even update the BIOS. The installer says "The program is unable to continue. The BIOS you are trying to update to is invalid for your system."

    I also tried using the DOS based update from a USB Flash drive and that doesn't work either. I can't get it to boot from USB (everything is enabled in BIOS to boot from USB).

    What's the deal?

    Turns out it doesn't like having a PS/2 keyboard plugged in on startup. I unplugged the keyboard and now it boots up without a hitch. It still says the AA number has not been programmed to the system but now it doesn't require me to press enter to boot it up. Wonder what the problem is?

    My carpc has a ps/2 keyboard plugged in all the time without any problems. Try flashing the bios to the latest version if you can.

    Not much activity on this thread, but I figured I'd post here instead of starting a new one...

    I'm having the exact same hibernation/resume problem as described below (also using an m2-atx). Just updated to the latest BIOS and still no fix. Has anybody figured out why this is happening?

Other times, itll start to boot up (ill see "resuming from hibernate") and then itll lose the display connection. I never had a problem with any of the other boards ive used in the car. Same PSU, etc.

    3.3V 5A
    5V 5A
    12V 2.5A
    more suited to EPIA stuff.

    I think so long as you dont go plugging heaps of USB stuff in it should squeak in. But personally ill be upgrading the board to morexs 150 version which is rates at 8 amps on the 5 volt rail.

    The good thing about the dual core atom board is the north bridge HSF has been reduced in height from 45mm to 30mm and its this factor that makes this case work at all.

    I'm adding 6 more car PCs to my install, but didn't want anything over powered so I found the Intel D945GCLF. I had some questions though since this seems to be a very popular board, or it was very popular. I see alot of people have moved onto the dual core version, something I don't need.

    Basically my main PC will be for heavy stuff, like Sat TV, 3D Video games and what not. I wanted each passenger to have the ability to switch to a personal PC and do things like go on the internet, watch videos, chat, music, thats about it. Will this board be able to handle that?

    How is the heat on this MoBo? I intend to build these into each door, in-cased in HP T5510 Cases which fit mini-itx boards perfectly. If heat is an issue I can always make vents for the processor fan.

    What is the lowest PSU wattage I can use. I need something really small, doesn't produce alot of heat, etc. These units will not use DVD Rom, they will connect to the main PC one via network share. Only devices that will be used are 2 USB ports, one for the arm rest for gadgets they want to use, and the other port will be used for a KVM which houses the Keyboard and Touchscreen. The on board sound, ethernet port and on board graphics will be used also, but other then that, nothing else at all.

    the single core will be fine for that as long as you dont want to watch HD divx etc. that may be the only thing it would struggle on, normal video should be fine.

    i cant remember about the single core, but the dual core ones needed a bigger psu, due to high 5V requirements, and the smaller psu's couldnt supply that, i went with a genius-pc GP83 160W in the end, mostly cause it was what i could get in my country and was good for the job

    These are cool little boards. I'm running one for my mini server setup at home that is on 24/7.
