    M1-ATX not working properly

    Can anyone please help me with this? I've tried searching, but nothing.
    I've just had my M1-ATX power supply delivered, and can't get it to work fully.
    If I set it as traditional PSU, it works as it should with a manual power switch.
    However, if I change the jumper settings to get offdelay and hardoff, it still only works as a traditional PSU. With everything wired up, and I put 12V to the ignition live, a small buzzing can briefly be heard from my HDD after about 5 seconds, and that's it. If I manually power it up, it will boot up fine, but the off delay does not work (though I think this is my motherboard settings); the hard off does work after 45 seconds.
    I've tried different HDD's, but it's still the same.
    Does anyone know why this thing won't auto power up with ignition live?

    If using XP, make sure the advance tab setting under power options is set to "shut down" when pressing the power button.

    Not sure, I would hope so as i only bought it from brand new last week.


    The shut down problem I'm not too worried about at the moment, it's the actual powering up of the motherboard that's annoying me.

    Thanks for your suggestions so far.
