    Another M1-ATX problem.. Pls help!

    OK, finished installing my system, and I know it works since I loaded the HD with all my files, using a regular 110AC ATX power supply. After i mounted everything (M1-ATX, VIA SP-1300, Seagate 250GB HD), The M1-ATX powers up the system; The CPU fan turns on, and I can hear the HD spin up. However, I get no VGA output from the motherboard. I have checked this using both my LCD and my desktop CRT. The aux power connectors all check out good (12v, 5v, gnd) I also remember that when I was initially configuring the system, when the system was booted, the board would beep upon entering POST. It doesn't even do this. Is there any way I can check anything else on the M1-ATX?

    i have the same mobo and PSU, i had the same problem twice, what i did was turn the car on for 10 min then tried it again and it worked. I thought me battery might of had a low charge ? not sure if that was the fix but it worked.

    PS, i only used the car computer for week so far.

    huh, odd. My next troubleshooting step is to rip my power supply out of this computer, and test it out in the car. I did try restarting it with the car on, and it didn't make a difference.

    dude, jcdillin just pointed out post 26 in your install thread where you have the pink foam/bubble wrap on the back of your mobo. THIS IS ANTISTATIC AND THEREFORE CONDUCTIVE! so you have likely fried your mobo as I thought.

    sorry to be the one to break it to you.

    Oh and your M1 ATX is on white foam which is probably conductive too if it is what some electronics came packed with!

    I thought that stuff was not conductive, and was just for shipping cushioning since the board was shipped in an antistatic bag. Crap, I hope I didnt permanently screw anything up. (crosses fingers)
