    MB-890F Motherboard problem

    Hi All,
    I'm new to these forums, but have made a purchases from the shop. I live in Perth Western Australia. My problem is with a new MB890F motherboard with a pentium M1.7G . I have been using a VIA M 10000 up until recently with a CNX-P1260 supply, no problems except it was a bit slow for GPS using Oziexplorer. I upgraded the MB and started having problems getting it to boot.
    I thought it might be the power supply although it only draws 3.5 Amps. I replaced it a CNX-P1900 same problem. The mobo will boot every time from a mains supply but not from the Carnetix. I've check the voltage is 19V which is spot on. I emailed IBT Technologies who say that they have heard of this problem and that a power supply of at least 3.5 amps is needed which both supplies meet. I would welcome any help. Seasons greetings to all.

    ROn.

    You're using the Carnetix P1900 as a regulator, but what are you using for a power supply?
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    Hi,

    The MB809F requires only one input between 12 and 19V. The normal setup when it doesn't boot reliably is with the CNX-P1260 or CNX-P1900 in line, with the car battery or bench power supply (13.8V at 25 Amps).
    When it does boot reliably I leave the CNX out and run it direct.
    I tried leaving the ACPI control off and switching it manually with no difference. When its in no go mode I checked the onbord 12v and 5V
    supplies and these seem normal, the case and CPU fans start but it doesn't boot.

    Ron.

    Sorry. Didn't look at the motherboard. It has the built-in power supply.
    I'm stumped, man. I hope you get an answer.
    Please accept this free bump as my consolation.
