    Question HELP! 3 yr M2-ATX only (BOOTS) when its hot outside?!?!?

    Location: Louisiana - Baton Rouge

    Totaled car b/c someone pulled in front of me.
    New build from old PSU but new PC.

    Start car below 90 degrees -> Monitor hooked up to pc via molex turns on but PC won't boot.
    Start car above 90 degress -> Works perfectly no issue ever.

    I checked all my connections and I still have NO IDEA whats going on. How can the monitor get power yet the PC will NOT boot no matter what?!?!? I can't even manually boot it.

    FYI: This issue happened once then over time got worse and worse.

    Any idea what to look for first? Just an old PSU that I need to replace? ugh

    seems like a bad power supply... try powering it from another PSU and see if it is your problem...

    i own the m2 also... but from what i read on here... the m2 is a hit or miss product... sometimes you get a good one...sometimes you get a bad one..
