    Cool

    I received the new supply in the mail today (ordered it on Thursday) so I will see about installing it tonight or something. It doesn't seem to be worth my time to try to repair the supply I have considering the price of a new supply (with warrantee) and the aggrivation a flaky older supply would cause...

    Cool

    Well I installed the new supply, and all is once again right with the world. Cruised down my street at 12AM cranking Enigma - Push The Limit. Really impressed the neighbours.

    I still have the old supply, and I will hold onto it in the off chance that I will put another computer in another car. I'll fix it at some point when I get bored...

    Aaron -

    Did you ever find out what exactly went bad in your old supply? This might be good to know for those who have the same supply...

    Cool

    I have not looked at it in detail yet, but I would imagine that the +5V became intermittant and/or deregulated. When I have time, I will load test the supply and figure out what's wrong.

    if 12v still works, then it is definately useful.... when making a dc-dc, getting 12v is a major headache
