    Question M1-ATX Testing Help?!?!

    Hi everyone! New here, great site for resources byw!

    Already did and , but need help

    Just got all my parts for computer together including my M1-ATX

    PIII 600MHz system
    20GB HDD
    that's about it (except video card and sound)
    Dynamix 7" LCD

    Have a fully charged car battery at home, so trying to test the system off of that. Checked voltage, has 12V on it.

    When testing the system like this, would I attach both the positive switched and un-switched to the positive terminal? Trying this, but system won't start

    Anybody have a picture of their working M1-ATX with all the wires attached?

    I am bench testing my system with the m1atx as I type this.
    I have mine setup so the switched power wire and the constant power are connected to the positive on the battery and the ground to the ground. REad the manual and set all jumpers accordingly.
    Very importante
    I have had no problems with mine at all.
    Make sure you have you switch on the computer wired to the controller as well. Or nothing will happen.
    This is probably your problem
    You can still have something if you have nothing

    I think I know what my issue is. Am using an OEM board from my old Dell computer, so I don't have and guidlines on which of the pins is for the power switch. WIll have to try them all out until I find the right pin.

    Thanks for the tip -- and yeah, I did Just wasn't totally sure bout it...

    Be extra careful with Dell boards. On many Dell motherboards and PSUs Dell used an ATX style connector with a non-standard pin arrangement. Mixing either of these with ATX compliant equipment will result in a dead motherboard, PSU, or both. Search google for more information.

    >that's about it (except video card and sound)

    Depending on the model, a video card can consume _more_ than your CPU.

    Remove you Video card (and audio card) and try again.
