    pw-70 & m10000 - boot problems

    When i boot my m10000 with the pw-70 power supply (just one hd connected, nothing else) it hangs up in the bios. It recognises the ram, but when it is supposed to scan the ide channels it just hangs up =s
    I've tested with a normal 230v power supply, and it works fine.
    Any suggestions what the problem may be?

    is your HDD 3.5" or 2.5". It may not like the 3.5" drive if that is what you are using. Try hooking a floppy drive up and boot to a boot disk and see if that works.
    Check out my hopefully useful site...

    It's still under design but it is functional

    Okay, now I've tested the pw-70 with another mobo, but with same harddrive. Guess what? It worked. But it still doesnt work with the m10000.

    Sounds like a bad mobo, or possibly just a bad connection.

    Dou you think so? What could be wrong? No to be rude, but it works fine with a normal powersupply =S

    I had a problem booting my M10000 when my car was running and alternator was putting out 14.5 volts. I had to put in an ITPS to get it down to 12 volts to work when it was running. I could get it to boot/run without my truck started.

    Well, now I've done some testing. The problems is with the harddrive, havent figured out what it is yet thou. If i boot the m10000 with the pw-70, but connect the harddrive to another powersupply, it works perfekt. But it still hangs up when i boot with the hdd connected to the pw-70.

    Its not a problem with the input voltage, since I'm running it with a 230v - 12v powersupply, and then connect the pw-70 to it. (Testrunning on my livingroomfloor ) I get exactly the same voltage with both the pw-70 and the atx powersupply.

    Check the Slave/master jumpers on your motherboard. A conflict with the jumpers usually causes hangups on boot.
