    carputer starts up then shuts down while using opus & power pin 6/8

    Hi all
    my Opus 150watt psu is hooked up to my carputer
    but if I use the green/white wire to pins 6/8 (respectively)
    the carputer starts up windows then shuts down again

    While the setup was being built on the bench I just used a simple momentary switch connect to pins 6/8 on the MB to start and shut down the pc

    I think the Opus is sending a constant signal and not a momentary signal which is causing the shutdown

    my motherboard is a Intel D845GRG and based on the PDF diagrams on the intel site I am using the correct Power switch pins and not the reset pins

    Any ideas?
    thanks

    Try reversing the polarity of the green/white wire.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    yeah tried that already, the system won't even start when I did

    so far, I've rigged up a momentary switch in the car with wires leading to the trunk, not the best, but it's working for now
