    EPIA M10000 Flaky w/ DVD Attached

    Hey guys,
    I'm trying to hook up my new EPIA M10000 board that I bought from another member on the site. It boots and everything works until I attach the DVD Drive. I'm using a standard 350 watt power supply, the DVD drive works in my other machine no problem, all the jumpers for master/slave are properly done, tried replacing the cables, everything I could think of. The only thing connected now is the power, 1 stick of 512MB DDR, 80 GB Maxtor, the DVD and my monitor. Like I said, as soon as I plug in the DVD the machine won't ven post at the BIOS. I'm really lost on this one, any ideas guys? I've also reflashed the BIOS as suggested in another thread on this board. Thanks in advance

    Matt

    Yeah, I tried both as masters on each IDE, and the hard drive as the master and cd as the slave on the same cable (changing the jumpers appropriately)

    Does your M10K beep at all when it won't POST? Like maybe a repetitious beeping every 1.5 seconds?

    Even though it works without the DVD drive hooked up, it may end up being the RAM. The M10Ks are very picky about RAM modules. Sometimes it'll work fine, other times it won't. Mine is going through that phase now. Going to swap out the RAM with some higher quality stuff and see if that fixes it.

    Try another dvd or optical drive on the epia. Or disconnect the hd and just connect the dvd to ide1 and see if it post. Maybe change your ide cable? or your could just be lazy and try an ide to usb adapter and connect thru usb.

    There is no pc speaker in the case I bought, I'll try and steal the one out of one of my other machines so I'm not sure about the beeps. I've changed out the memory, tried a stick of Crucial, Mushkin, and Kingston in there, no luck. Heres something wierd. If I boot the machine and go into the bios with only the hard drive hooked up, and while I'm in the bios I plug in the DVD player and try to auto find it it appears in the bios. So I save the settings and reboot, but then nothing. This one is really really wierd. Tried 2 other drives, a DVD, CDRW and a normal old school CD Drive and no frickin luck, anyone else have any ideas?

    Oh yeah, it doesn't post with the DVD drive hooked up alone. I'd like to be lazy, but I bought a nice HTPC case that has the 5.25 slot built in.

    Alright guys, I figured it out, the power supply wasn't big enough for the components I got, or its faulty. I have a Silverstone LC04 http://www.silverstonetek.com/products-lc04.htm Which comes with a 240 watt TFX Power Supply. The only things I have running on this board are...
    80 GB Maxtor 3.5" 7200 rpm drive
    EPIA M10000 (this thing takes no power to run)
    Mushkin PC2100 DDR
    Lite-On 16x DVD Recorder

    There is no way that those should take up 240 watts, I'm thinking the drive is faulty, what do you guys think?
