    Angry M1-ATX - works bench but reboots in car

    I had the carputer up and running for many hours with everything plugged into it just as it would be in the car. When I hooked it up in the car the machine boots but will reboot constantily. It doesn't reboot at the same spot. I'm lost.

    I have a MII1000, M1-ATX

    1) Check your car wiring job. Use alternate wiring if you are unable to find the problem... Avoid using your cigarrete lightler as a power source., it is not reliable.

    2) Make sure your M/B does not overheat. (not the PSU -- M1-ATX can go as high as 105 Celsis).

    3) Avoid ground loops -- keep the PC chassis as much as possible away from the car chassis. In most situations you should be OK, but you never know...
