Is anyone running this board with a laptop IDE drive?
I'm planning a setup and i have pretty new WD laptop IDE drive laying around, figured I could save some $$ on the HD if i can use it.
As my luck will have it, my board just malfunctioned just before the 500mi trip i need to on later this week. Installed it in the truck last weekend and was working fine. Today all of a sudden the screen went black. Now, i DON't even get POST from the BIOS
When the M-2 sends the "on" signal, the fan starts to spin and i get the green light on the MB; the HDD makes a sound for a microsecond. All along NO POST.
I tried another HDD but no change; remove the battery and reinstalled still nothing. The P4 connector is installed and show power with a test light.
Next i'm going to hook it up to a conventional power supply and see what happens.
If anybody have experienced this or have any suggestions - please chime-in.
I need to get me a map - just in case.
Yep, mine is computer market $5.00 special, i have also eliminated nearly half of the atx wires,much easier to route the cable.
I just got this mobo last week (upgrading from VIA M10000) and already have a M2-ATX PSU setup and ready to go. I finally got everything connected - I had to use a molex to 2x2 12v cable to get that connected (do 2x2 to 2x2 cables even exist?) - so thought I was ready to go today. I turned on the ignition and all I got was the green light on the mobo and a dim HDD light. I don't have the power led hooked up anymore because my case connector is 3 pins wide, but the mobo takes a 2 pin connector, plus I don't need a power indicator when I get this thing running. I tried reconnecting the memory twice and disconnecting everything but the mobo from power. I also tried shorting the power pins on the mobo and setting the M2-ATX as always on. All I got was the green light. The only thought I have left is that my battery doesn't have enough juice, but it turns over just fine and all interior lights and radio are fine. I guess the next step is to somehow hook it up to a regular PSU, but don't have one of those around at the moment, so maybe tomorrow.
Any other ideas?
