Fan spins for few seconds, then dies but manual power switch works 100%??
When I use my M2-ATX with its intended functionality (remote wire signaling mobo with "power" signal), my motherboard boots up, fans and HDD begin to work, but then the hdd dies within 3-4 seconds. However, I tried using the exact same setup, only switching the remote signal wire from the PSU to the Mobo for a "manual" power switch that one could find on a desktop pc, it works just fine!!
only things connected are a 2.5" laptop hdd and a case fan... my computer is not particularly power intensive.
what is the issue here? has anybody experienced this? it was working fine today, until I took everything out of my case to do a bit of housekeeping. keep in mind that the case has never actually been in my car - I am simply bench testing it using an atx psu. it's driving me off the wall - hope I don't have to RMA.
