    tview Overheat

    my tview seems to now be turning off randomly .. well not randomly.. but if lets say it's on for 30 min .. and I touch it.. it shut the whole machine off .. and rebooted.. this last time I actually did a voice command and it did it..

    but then it starts to boot up fine.. and when it gets to the windows desktop it dumps and restarts again .. I proably have it set to reboot on erro instead of display the error or log it.. I'll have to try that ..

    and the odd thing is it still does it even if I unplug the USB for the touch portion of it.. I can break the cycle my turning it off for a few seconds while it loads up windows and CF .. then I turn it back on and everything is fine.. but "usually" in a few more seconds it dumps again .. so I'm thinking it's heat.. I'm thinking of making a aluminum backing for it.. and opening up the plastic shell in the back..and maybe throwing a fan on it.. ..

    let me know if anyone has soem siggestions or helps

    Well, they do get pretty hot, but no problems here so far, especially I have it placed (for the moment) near the heating vents, wich in this time of the year do run pretty hot. But your problem is definatly not screen related.

    Why don't you tell us how you are powering the Tview screen. My hunch is that it is drawing to much power for you PSU to take

    yes I'm going via PSU . and running 2 IDE 3.5 drives .. one is 5200rpm though .. anyway .. I had that one turn off after 5 min .. and I did notice that when that sucker spins back up it nearly takes the system down sometimes.. so I had them both stay spinning.. and we'll see how it goes..

    I'm wondering power now too actually..

    and yes most of my problems come from my meddling .. the "problem" inbetween the chair and the keyboard

    sounds like a lack of power. if you remove one HDD does it still have the problem?
    what PSU are you using?

    I Have the same screen and can have it on and the computer all day no problems. its also installed indash near HVAC vents.
