    issues with M10000 and monitor - sometimes it turned off during windows is loading

    Hello ,

    I have the problem that sometime my monitor turned off during the windows problem (it's 8" with 800*600).
    Initial Bios load and testing is OK - I can see the picture all the time, that when windows XP is loading - monitor is blinking and sometime the VGA signal is disappeared and windows is not loading ...... I can see that there is not VGA channel... then I pressed off the power button on my CarPC and press on again - and it works ( I mean the windows is loading and the VGA signal presents ).

    Do you have any ideas?

    unhook the computer and bring it in your house. hook it up to a monitor in your house to make sure that your resolution is not set to one that your 8" monitor does not recognize.

    i hope that works for you.

    the resolution is set to 800*600. and it supported my monitor. ( strange that sometimes it works... sometimes doesn't)

    Or what did you mean?

    if the resolution is set correctly, then there could be a lot of different possible issues...

    1. could be your video output hardware is dying

    2. could be your harddrive not fully loading windows due to a corrupt sector (re-installing windows might fix that)

    3. could be a memory issue (unlikely, but still possible) testing your RAM sticks or using Memtest86 might tell you if thats the problem

    4. could be your VGA cable. make sure there aren't any exposed areas of the cable as it runs the length of your car.

    5. could be your monitor (unlikely, but possible from the problem you are describing)

    6. could be a software incompatability on your computer (one program does not like the other, and therefor freezes your system)

    you are just going to have to troubleshoot with trial and error. the first step would be to hook it up to a different monitor to make sure its not the monitor's fault.

    I've also checked the following situation ..... when I connect my pc to external power supply (I have 220V->12V adapter) that I have no problems ...... but when I connect my carpc to car 12V power - that it sometimes cause this problem.... to be honest I thought that I need a M10000 BIOS update ....

    I will also try to install the newest AGP driver from VIA site ...... may it will help ...because all the points (1-6) doesn't seems to be passed.

    check the wiring in your car to make sure....

    use a multimeter to test the voltage when it is plugged into your car. you might just need a voltage regulator...

    I've checked the wiring is ok. I have also 12V 60W voltage regulator - that is installed in my Travla C158 case....

    no....that might be your problem. it might have some sort of fail safe on it to prevent it from overdraw...get one that matches your PSU wattage and you should be fine...

    ill be on later, im off to bed now...hopefully this fixes it.
