    earthing problem??

    Removed my system from the car to do some updates.

    I'm using a standard PC power supply, to power the system, using the 12v line to the harddisk connector.

    Problem is when I have a monitor connected the system starts to boot, then the power supply shuts down.
    Runs fine when no monitor is attached.

    When it is running, and I touch the monitor connector to the VGA port or to the case the power supply shuts down.

    Used another monitor the same thing.

    It's seems to be a earthing problem, can anyone give me any suggestions
    maybe I have missed something.

    Thanks

    John
