    DSATX Motherboard Power Switch Polarity

    Some have you have found that using the DSATX Power Switch cable doesn't work with some computers that have positive logic power switches. Basically you connect up the jumper in either polarity and it still doesn't work.

    I came up with a cable to fix this. I am going to sell them as kits because they take a bit of time to build.

    Instructions are posted here:

    Please let me know when you have the kits available and how much they'll be. I'll most likely need one. Thanks.

    I have the kits ready. They cost 15 dollars for a prebuilt cable (cause I'm doing them myself.)
    And 5 dollars shipped for the kit. You do the soldering, you'll need a iron, wire strippers, heat gun, solder, etc..


    send me an email if your interested.

    Well, I officially can't get my motherboard to switch on with the DSATX. I have the epia M10000, do I need one of your kits to get this thing turned on? Please let me know.

    The LED light and fan is not even coming on. No indication that power is getting to my motherboard, very weird considering I just had the M1-ATX working fine in my car. Anyone know what the issue could be. I have checked polarity and tried reconfiguring like 10 times. I am going crazy.

    Is the LED on the DSATX coming on?

    Nope, nothing at all. I haven't seen the LED come on once since I hooked it up.

    I have 8 guage wire coming directly from my battery, for each (+) & (-) and I have the ACC going to my stereo 12V ignition.

    Do you think I was sent a fried DSATX?

    Or, is it time to just go to the M2-ATX? As you can tell I get very impatient with things that don't work.

    Everything I have read... specs and feedback points to the DSATX being a superior solution to the M2-ATX.

    Looks like you waited an hour and a half between posts. Do not get hasty.

    Can you give me the serial number on the back of the DSATX?

    So the LED on the DSATX is not turning on either? Do you have access to a serial port brainstem?

    If it turns out there is a problem with your DSATX you can send it back to me and I will fix or replace it free of charge. Just stick it in the mail.

    serial: D571306

    I don't have a serial port brainstem handy, do you think the M10000 mobo's need 'em?

    I am checking everything, the fuse appears fine but I am about to go get another one just to double check.

    I appreciate your integrity about the product. I will let you know what happends in an hour or two after I do some trial and error work.
