    car pc wont boot

    I have just put together my M10000 and travla c134 car pc ,hooked it up to a CRT and tried to fire it up, fans spin, power light comes on, hdd and cdrom waken up, but nothing happens, no signal to the CRT. I tried a different monitor, discconnecting hdd and cdrom and reseating the RAM all the usual stuff but still nothing?!?! Looks like the motherboard is dead!? help please!

    Try different RAM. Does the keyboard lights flash. When it is on can you press num-lock etc. Try removing the BIOS battery or following the instructions on re-setting the BIOS.

    how are you powering it...?

    I had similar problems with my mobo, '
    I had to bring the whole thing inside,
    power it up and it worked,
    then take it back out into my car and all was well,

    maybe just try and check all your power connections
    mobo $130 ; 150wOpus-$200 ; 256mb pc2700 -$10 ; 120gb HDD 7200-$70 ; Lilliput TS 7"-$265 ; USB LAN-Free AR ; Rikaline 6010 GPS-$34 ; ShuttleXpress-$37
    Total = $746....Carputer = Priceless

    powering it using the supplied ac adapter inside, want it set up first before goin to the car.

    now the ram is 333Mhz ddr ultra low profile, the m10000 states it uses 266ddr, but the place i bought the ram from said it has been tried and tested on this mother board no problems.

    try a cmos reset (read manual for instructions)

    there is jumper (probably near the batery ) that you need to switch from 1 and 2 to 2 and 3 and then back

    Does the manual say anything about memory speed selection?
