If you power this using a desktop PSU on the workbench inside can you recreate the issues?
My system sometime starts, sometime doesn't [it'll boot, get to the splash screen then crash before the windows screen].
Here's my hardware:
Intel BOXDG45FC LGA 775
Western Dig. 80gig
I'm using from MP3Car:
M4 Atx power 250 watt
Boomzbox HD radio (crazy static and not many stations)
lilliput dvi touch screen
...i think that's it.
The northbridge on this system gets crazy hot. Stock, it just has a heat sink but no fan, I put a fan on it and that helped. I originally tested the system using an in-house atx power supply everything ran fine... now with the M4... crash, crash, crash.
Also if the computers on and I unplug something in the usb or plug something new in... crash.
Any thoughts or similar experiences.
I'm going to leave everything in the car and hook up my in house atx and see if its stable. I'll get back to you guys.
If you can try another motherboard, please do. The combination of the M4 and your current motherboard might not be a very amenable one.
I searched some more and found someone with my exact issue. He put the comp. on swtich to jp1 and said it worked fine... I did that, I it did work perfectly fine. Then i put it back in the car... nothing. Jp1 when connected, now disables the m4 atx completely. The light next to j6 stops blinking altogether. J8 is still stuck on on all the time. When i disconnect the jp1 to get the light back on, its blinks constantly and fast [j8 still hot all the time]. When I connect to j8 ot turn the system on then then remove the wire to let it boot,.. the system turns on and stay on regardless of whether I remove the acc line [yes post 1 is down to to a 5sec start and 30 sec shut down]. This contraption doesn't seem to do anything more then once. Each jumper acts different every time I get it to turn on.
With a desktop PS things are fine. I'm not sure if M4's are just generally awful or whether its just this one, but being that my 30 days are up... I don't think I'll be getting another M4. Maybe a DSatx with a 20 to 24 converter.
