YAOP (yet another Opus problem)
I received my 150w "naked" opus yesterday, wired it, everything ok
led blinks OK, then ACC on and the pc starts to boot fine
Windows XP bootup logo, 5 sec, 10, 20, 60, Blue Screen Of Death
it won't boot properly
I plug my standard ATX psu and it works oerfectly, boots up and goes into stanby. I replug the opus, pc starts and wakes up from standby but it's VERY slow, it take about 5 min to do a complete shutdown. After that it won't boot, it still hangs on Windows bootup logo.
I think it might be related to poor 5v rail but it's 10A, same as M1 and same as my old DC-DC, and with both of them it works perfectly, but I've gotr 12v overload issues so I purchased an Opus.
don't know what to do, I tried to power up the hard drive using another ATX psu, same problem.
the configuration is pretty soft..
amd xp-m 2500+ (but it boots up at 600mhz...)
ecs mainboard with audio-video-lan-usb
20gig 2.5" hdd
I tried to remove dvd rom, same problem
the entire pc drains about 4A from the battery.. I was thinking about checking the 5v drain from the mainboard, where should I check this value?
by the way, it is really NOT supposed to give 5v overload problem..
any ideas? :confused:
Below I quote the email I sent to the Opus support..
