    From the Opus manual

    3 Flashes : Power supply output voltages are out of normal voltage range.

    Reasons:
    1. Power supply output is over loaded or shorted.
    2. Faulty DC-DC power supply.
    Never let the truth get in the way of a good story

    that's pretty good help by meddler. however, i guess i need to break it down. assuming the power supply is not overloaded, and the opus works is not faulty, then there is only one other option. you might have run the wires incorrectly, maybe a short. have you checked the wires?

    What more help do you need?!?!?!
    He gave you the text straight from the manual that tells you what your problem is. You're either overloading the output or your PSU is faulty.

    Look at the setup you're running. Unless you're using a low-wattage P4 1.8, you're drawing way more load than the Opus can provide.

    How do I know?
    I read this: FAQ: Will <insert PSU model> Power Supply work with my system?
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    i've been running a 2.4 p4 on my 150W opus for 2 years now. no problems so far. probably a faulty opus. just contact opus...they're pretty easy to work with.

    I run a 2.4 Ghz Northwood P4 - no problems (MB870 board). It lists the power consumption with my configuration and it is within spec for the OPUS.

    WHy dont you disconnect all exterl power from the PC except jsut have you power to the opus and the screen connected and see what happens. That happened to me, i got 3 flashes after it shutdown after a couple seconds. Found out i had too much stuff drawing power from my opus.

    I think we aren't helping him enough. Does anyone live close to him that can swing by after work and finish his install?
