    Opus Power Supply Problems

    I have been researching but cant seem to find anything like my problem. I ran my opus 150w off of a distobution block that is shared with my sub amp. When I turn on my car the opus turns on and the fan spins but the computer dosent turn on. Any advice?

    Sounds like a dead motherboard. I've had a few who's fans just spinned. Try resetting the BIOS, that fixed one of them.

    It definitely wasent a dead mobo. I tried 3 different computers and after taking them out of the car they booted up with a AC power supply.

    Ok. What kind of wiring are you using?
    Also, check that no parts of the opus are touching the case.

    Oh, and they have tech support

    IxTanGxI, what board are you using? I just got an Asus Pundit-R system and mine is doing the same exact thing. I then hook it up to the stock regular PSU and plug it up to the wall and it works perfectly. My opus was working 100% with my Via Epia system.

    Yeh, the pundits don't get along with the opus. You have to send the opus back to them for service to make it work.

    Yeah I had read that in a nother 5 page thread that i've posted my findings on. Unfortunately, Rafal at Opus said I shouldn't have any problems. Just do the powerswitch wiring and it should work. Too bad he was wrong :/ Oh well, I've had this PSU for over 3 years now. I had considered getting the Carnetix 1900, but if I can get them to mod this one for free and maybe get the case for it that'd be sweet. I originally bought it just board and cables.

    Anyway, I'll keep you guys posted if anyone cares
