I have notice since winter hit my carpc won't boot, the fans run are running, but nothing comes up on the screen.
If I unplug the power then start up the car and have the heater on for a while, and then plug it in sometimes it boots and sometimes not. Sometimes it will start to boot, but not get past post (doesn't register the ram or processor, just freezes on the start of the black screen with some text at the top). If I then unplug it after a bit (the power) and try again, it usually starts up fine then.
This seems to only happen when it is super cold out.
Any ideas about what is going on?
Never had a pc in that cold of an environment, but they seem to do fine in cold so it is a bit confusing. Only thing I can think of is the power supply isn't working correctly because of some expanding or something and so things aren't getting enough power. Also suppose there could be some moister when it is colder, but my car doesn't seem to be moist. It is pretty new.
All the carpc and car info should be in my signature or my project page, but here is the power supply:
M2-ATX 160W Intelligent DC-DC PSU
and here is the case:
And feel free to ask any q's.
Thanks in advance for any help and sorry if there is already a post on this, but searched for several things and nothing came up.
