Because they are in threads that talk about both.. I didn't start NEW threads, I posted in EXISTING threads that mentioned the problem in each..
Will this m2-atx be able to support an LCD monitor with 12v, 15watts requirements? After looking at the the technical specs in the store page, I see that at the bottom of the 2nd chart it states that off of the 12v rail, its MAX and Peak current are 8watts and 9watts respectively. Therefore I assume that this is not enough to handle an LCD with 15watts requirement. Can anyone advise me if I'm wrong?
#Edit/Correction: I'm sorry I JUST realized that the PSU current output is 8amps and 9amps, not watts(which is power), duh... But My question of compatibility still stands. Is there enough power output for the 12v 15watt lcd?
I found an issue with my m2atx. I dont know the actual issue, but when i boot up with it in the car, the keyboard works on the post diagnostic screen and i can get into bios after that, bios does not respond to keystrokes. Same if i try to boot from cd once past post and i am prompted to press any key to boot from cd no response on usb or ps2 keyboards. Also if i let it boot all the way to windows os only 2 usb ports work, others have no power. I pulled it out, connected my car pc to a normal desktop powersupply and all is well all usb ports work just fine.(good news at least)
power USB devices through unpowered hubs.

So I then went to wire it permanently but before I did that I worked on it a little more and it started working correctly, without the filter!
It's like having the filter in there for a few boots fixed it.. Weird..
Anyhow, it's working normally now, without the filter.
I am preparing 2 carputer with M2-ATX and asus at3n7a-i atom330.
To do the tests use a PC 300W ATX power supply.
When ignition is on the motherboard is powered in a strange way, in the sense that the MB power LED flashes (as if in sleep) and nothing on the the PC work (usb radio leds and MB power led blink). After a variable time (1 minute, 2 minutes, 10 minutes, never) the PC turns on (but not always) and everything runs smoothly, including soft off by disconnecting the ignition. In practice I have to start using P0 (like a normal PC power supply) and then change to P1 to have a soft off when i turn off ignition (simulated with a switvh on the 12v line in).
I have a twin pair of components and both of them work in the same way, changing the polarity of j8 too!.
May be incompatibility between m2-atx and asus ion itx, wrong wire connection or incorrect bios settings?
Sorry for my spaghetti english.
