    Have you tried your setup in the car with an AC power supply?

    You should isolate the problem to the OPUS or the motherboard.

    If it happens with both power supplies then start debugging the connections to the motherboard and your Windows install.

    My guess though would be you're overloading the OPUS, or the OPUS is shutting your computer down.

    What are your system specs? A Via Mini-ITX, 3.5 HDD, OPUS 150, and?

    well for god damn 200 bux i sure hope im not overloading the opus!!!

    I got a v10000 mobo. 3.5hd 200gig. Thats all. NO cdrom or anything.

    Then i have my xenarc 700tsv hardwired to opus also.

    I will be doing all your suggestions today and let you guys know what happens.

    .

    I havent read all the trouble shooting, but here's another quicky suggestion.. Are all the fans on to mobo turning ?? Also Check the seed on the processor (unless its an epia in which case its soldered onto the board)

    I did read the first page of this post, and I was immed. thinking powersupply.. the opus may infact not be runinng properly.. or it may NOT be getting good enough power from the car... (either the car battery is to strong or not enough juice) Run a test on the wires going to the opus to see the voltages are they near 12v ?? if so.. you might need additional voltage regulation on that line from the cars power..

    I'm not familiar with the opus, maybe it already has voltage regulation.. in which case if you've tested the above your opus isnt working properly.. (putting it like this doesnt even sound like a computer problem.. but more than a personal problem.. )

    Yeah, opus has built in regulation I believe. Supposed to work on like 8v up to 20v or something like that.

    Ok. To take one less variable out of the way, i lugged my fullscreen monitor outside and hooked it up to an extension cord.

    Booted the PC. First time i tried, i got the windows had a prblem screen...choose to boot in safe mode, normal, etc.

    I chose normal. The little white progress bar came up on the very bottom of my screen, got about 3/4ths the way loaded and the pc rebooted. Light on OPUS stayed constant green. Both fans on OPUS and MOBO never stopped spinning. And I have a constant hooked up to the remote wire on the opus to make sure that isnt the problem.

    Second time it rebooted, i acxtually got the the Windows XP logo with the small progress bar.. Was on that screen for about 5 seconds and just when that logo goes away and windows is supposed to load, the computer restarted again.

    Third time..get this...windows logo came up and then my screen just went black. Computer and OPUS are both still running. Constant green on opus, and my screen is just blank.

    Hmmmm, i lugged my AC power supply out there also. Hooked it up to the computer and it did the same thing! It restarted after the windows xp logo came up. Tried it again and this time windows booted.

    This is the first time this has happened with my AC power supply. The only variable is weather. Whenever I did ac i was always in my house. But this time I got the computer outisde and temp is about 60 degrees or so. Would that have any affect?

    INtresting....using my AC powersupply from the house, i booted xp and once XP loadad i got that., "windows has encountered an error" message. I clicked to see the details they were gonna send and one of the files was something like,

    c:\.....\temp\mini08647.dmp


    Im assuming this is my MINI ITX info correct? Could I have a bad MOBO?

    One thing i know is when i was trying to get the mobo to boot back up after i messed up the power setting in BIOS...i was playing with a lot of the jumpers. Maybe I didnt put one back in the correct spot? Does anyone have an online reference for the v10000 mobo as to where each jumper should be?
