    I agree regarding the P4 connection. Make sure that you have it connected..silly but simple.

    Yes, P4 was connected. It went from running - shut down - attempted restart and no more working. Tried different PSU, pulling memory. I let it sit with the battery out and disconnected from the power supply for a week as that had worked once in the past, but no dice this time. Intel didn't give me any flack over it. I talked to 'em once and they said try resetting the BIOS and if that didn't work get back with them and they would get me a new one.

    My issue is solved with the dual monitors now. It was the vga splitter I was using, I'm assuming that it was having power fluctuations as it was powered via the car's 12 volt. I'm going to try to macgyver a connection to the OPUS over the winter (thankfully no shows until April at the earliest).

    I had the same problem as you. One day booted just fine and then the next nothing but green light and fans without POST. I had to RMA my board. I also had issues with the board booting with my Opus. I had to manually power on the board to get it to work. After my RMA all was good.

    I want to ask you guys if someone can help me.

    Thanks

    Someone from the store where i usually buy this stuff told me that the bios can be damaged due to tempratue and humidity. What do you guys say about that.
    What are the temp range for this mobo ?
    Is it possible that in winter ( As the guy said ) it will be a problem to use it ?

    I bought a new one, D945GCLF2D.

    I have a D945GCLF2D and am having the very same issues described, green light comes on, fan spins and no video. However, this happened to me my very first boot (see thread here), could I be having the same issue? I don't currently have a P4 cable, but I'll order one tonight and test that before I RMA.

    Dezdan, the mobo WILL NOT POST if the P4 connector isn't connected.

    I've played with this board and performance is more than good enough for CarPC environments.
    only D945GCLF2 will support 667MHz ram then?
    no option for D945GCLF2D in bios to use higher speed ram?

    As far as I know vull, D945GCLF2 and 2D both underclock the ram to 533mhz. I noticed that my old D945GCLF board shows in the BIOS setup the ability to set 667mhz as the ram speed, but did not find this option in the GCLF2 or 2D. I think I'll pull the ram out of my D945GCLF system just to test, maybe the 667mhz option shows up with supported ram only? I find it hard to believe that the GCLF will support and run at 667mhz and the 2/D will only support it at 533.

    EDIT: After playing around with this on my D945GCLF, setting the ram to 667mhz causes the system not to POST. Perhaps this is why they pulled support for it in later atom-based boards? I'm not sure, I need to look up the timings for this ram to make sure I'm not setting something incorrectly. Thus far though, I'm thinking it just wasn't meant to be.

    EDIT2: It appears that the bios is the same for the D945GCLF and GCLF2/2D. I will compare BIOS versions and see what I find.
