    opus somewhat powering on?

    Hi, about a week ago i installed an opus to my carputer instead of an inverter and a psu. system specs:

    epia m10000
    512 mb ram
    200 gb seagate
    150 watt opus
    liliput 7" touchscreen

    I did not wire the opus to the ignition, instead i use a switch to turn the computer on/off. The opus has been working great up until yesterday. While driving, it seemed like the computer went into sleep mode. After a bit of driving, i wanted to listen to some music so i tapped the screen to get it out of sleep mode. The computer would not come back. I checked the LED on the power switch and it was solid. I turned the computer off, then back on, the LED would light up, which shows that its getting power, but the opus fan is not spinning and the opus is flashing 4 times.

    Has this ever happened to anyone? Could my opus have suddenly died on me?

    Well, did you wire it up correctly? and did you re-check all the connections?

    Did you read the manual to see what 4 flashes means?
