    Opus/computer restart

    My carputer has been working fine until just recently. Instead of turning on and having windows start up. The computer keeps restarting, before it even gets out of the bios. It turns on then after a couple of seconds it restarts. Is this the opus powersupply restarting the computer or cutting off the power and then cutting it back on, or is broken. The power supply, blinks normally when its plugged in and the car is off, and when it does the restarts it starts blinking like the computer is going to turn on, then the led just stops blinking. I've tried unplugging everything, and i've tried restarting many times and nothing seems to fix it, anyone have any ideas?
    Thanks.

    My first guess is you're drawing too much current. Unplug some USB devices.
