    DS-ATX : Just installed, not behaving correctly

    When I start the ignition, the power supply starts the motherboard for a second, then cuts power causing the fans to stops. They don't even get a rotation. The light on the power supply is a solid red and the motherboard is getting some power to it as the LAN adapter shows an orange light on the motherboard and the CDRW/DVD-Rom is blinking.

    I'm using an MB896 board from iBase. I believe this is the same or similar to the one Red GTI v6 is using.

    Any clues of what I should look for to help with this issue?

    Try just powering the motherboard, no hdd, or dvdrom, nothing but the mobo. Sounds like the PSU is overloaded.

    I will definitly give that a shot. I only have the harddrive, dvd-rom, and a wireless card plugged into the mini-pci slot. This power supply should be able to handle that easily.

    You might also try powering the whole ball of wax with a standard-issue ATX power supply, just to make certian that everything is in working order.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    Yeah, that's sounds like a good plan too. It was working on the bench before I installed it.

    ok my bet is you are either not using a 4 PIN p4 cable and your mobo requires that..or you mobo has a reversed polarity turn on switch

    Definitly somthing good to check. My motherboard does not have the 4 pin plug on it and I have tried the power switch in both directions. But still good ideas!
