    INSTALLED, but with problems

    i hate this, installed everything ok, had it kinda profesionally installed, yet m getting these problems.

    my VGA quality is poor. sometimes it says that its "OVER RANGE" what do i do to this problem? i have a 7" lilliput. i extended the VGA from the front to the trunk... is that why the quality is poor?

    also, im having feedback when i play my mp3s. and all my volume controls have to be all the way up to hear the music... m using soundblaster mp3+

    HELP!!! what to do? please help me so i could tell the installers what to do while my car is still under their "WARRANTY"

    what is the resolution you are using? and what is the refresh rate. I would suggest using powerstrip as it would allow using the custom resolutions... If you need help setting up the powerstrip pm me...

    If you have an Epia motherboard, go into the CMOS settings and make sure the monitor type is set to LCD. I've heard that if it's not set this way with the Lilliput, it may sometimes say OVER RANGE improperly.

    how do i get to that CMOS thing? sorry, not good with computers.

    i checked my control panel and display, it only has a choice of 800x600 and 1xxx something by 1xxx im not really sure.

    this is actually how my setup is:

    EPIA M9000
    7" lilliput
    (2)5.6" tft/lcd

    i ran the mp3+ out to a Y-splitter with my DVD player. to the AUX, and im getting feedback BIG TIME! cant even hear the music.

    Reboot your computer. When the first image shows up (on my M10000 it says 'EPIA MAINBOARD' or something like that) hit the Del key on your keyboard. This will bring up the CMOS settings screen, a text menu that lets you configure your motherboard. You should find the 'Monitor type' somewhere in one of the menus, maybe the 'Chipset Configuration' menu, I can't remember (and my car is down in my garage and I'm stuck on a conference call right now).

    Hope that helps, I'll be checking here frequently.

    You go into CMOS when your computer is first starting up. There is a differant key that you press for differant motherboards but it is usually delete or F1. It should tell you when the computer is first turned on what key to press to go into setup. Try pressing del or f1 when your computer is first powered on, and keep pressing it until you get to the CMOS setup (You will be able to tell when this comes up), or you get to the Windows startup screen (which means you didn't press the right key and means you have to restart and try again).

    Not sure what you're powering it with, but if you're using an inverter, you probably want a ground loop isolator or something to get rid of the alternator whine.
