    Hardware failure?

    Just the other day I went to start up the CarPC and my bios spits out "Hardware Monitor found an error. Enter power menu setup for details." I checked the voltages and everything seems fine, but just to be sure I disconnected it and plugged it into a normal PSU and I still get the same message when starting it up.

    The fan seems to be in fine working order, the RPM is around 5,300 and the CPU/MB temps also seem to be normal.

    Any other ideas on what I should try?

    Update:

    Ok in the BIOS i set all the options in the power menu to ignore, but i still get the message, nothing is red either.

    I pulled out all my PCI cards, nothing.

    I pulled out each stick of RAM and tested seperately, nothing.

    I re-seated the CPU, nothing.

    I tried another PSU, nothing.

    Don't know what else to do... Could the Mother Board be toast? If so that means ill have to find another thats a micro-atx that can support 100mhz SDRAM and an Intel Celeron III 1200 mhz Processor.

    Ok, I was unable to find a solution. My only conclusion was that something on the MB failed. I bought a new one and it came last night all set to go again!
