    Finally up and running

    But I have a question.....
    First though much thanks to everyone on this site for all the info posted here.
    Without you I could not have gotten this far.
    First off....my pc is up and running.
    MII10000 and a M1ATX.

    Here's the question.
    With the M1ATX should I be able to turn on the pc while the car is off?
    I think I may have the wires connected incorrectly.
    Another Novice?

    Wish I could help, but seeing as though there has not been a response, I'll give a bump.

    I dont have that power supply, but the wire I would check is the wire that tells the unit to turn the computer on. Im assuming it has 3 wires going into it. Ground, Power, Accessory. The accessory wire tells it when to turn the computer on. And the accessory wire usually only has power when your car is turned on. What I did to remedy this and have the ability to run the computer when the car is off, is I wired a constant 12volt line into my accessory wire and put a switch on it.

    This way when i flip the swtich, regardless if the car is on or not, the power unit will see the 12volts on the accessory wire and begin to feed the computer power.

    What nappyjim said...I think. I'm hypnotized by your avatar so I can't think straight.
