    Carputer stalls when accelerate the car

    When i put the pedal to the metal my carputer stalls for some seconds, sounds is stuttering etc. When i stop accelerating everything goes back to normal.
    Perhaps it has something to do with higher voltage during accelerate (because of the engine power), but i dont have a clue, maybe its a common problem.

    My setup is an Opus 150W, Via Epia M10000, 2.5" 12 GB Disk, and some other stuff of what i think is not really important for this issue.

    Thanks for all the help/suggestions

    The Opus should compensate for increased voltage. It most likely has something to do with the g forces, perhaps causing your disk to error on reads.

    Try reorienting your disk drive and see if you have the same problem.

    Try checking ALL connections over again... Could be a loose connection that is disconnecting when accelerating...

    If a Corolla that have enought torque/horse power to cause a dish error to "stall/freeze" the PC, the HD is probably on it way out. Does the PC stall/freeze when you go over speed pump? Well if you have a Turbo corolla (Levin?), and that a different thing.

    It will be a conection well before it is a disk. It could be power or motion related. Check all power and data connections as well as cards/RAM

    Yes, you should search... and Yes, It has been covered before!

    C'mon now, really? What do normal street cars pull when accelerating? It can't be more than 1G, probably something like 0.5G to 0.75G max. If this is his problem, he can generate more force by braking.

    Please ignore that last statement, my small crack-addled brain can't remember basic car physics sometimes

    I mean that if the hard drive is defective, the acceleration may be affecting it, however low it may be.

    I just can't see how an electrical surge would cause the computer to skip, but then revert to normal when the surge stops. The computer either ought to function or it ought to freeze.

    But skip? Then return to normal because of increased voltage? That seems far fetched.
