Freezing and booting problems! 2nd Day of Install!
When my CarPC works, it works very nicely. Only thing is alternator whine, but my ground is like 3ft long so, have to fix that!
I have a M10000, an M2-ATX, 1Gb RAM, and a 250Gb 3.5" drive.
Well anyways, heres the thing. Sometimes the audio freezes. The flash logos in RR keep spinning and the title continues to scroll though. I think that it is the harddrive not getting the info fast enough because of the bumps. But sometimes it freezes completely. Usually after the A/C is turned on or something like that, so I'm thinking the power is getting screwed up and then the computer is freezing. I don't know. Never had to diagnose something like this in a car. :D
So, then when it freezes, I push the power button for 3 seconds and that shuts it down. Well used to. Now it doesn't. When it is off, and I start the car, the M2 turns the mobo on, so it is connected properly. Now nothing happens when I push that button. After it freezes like that, I now have to physically disconnect the 12v constant to shut it all off. Then when it reboots I get one of two things:
- It says disk boot error, or
- the motherboard stays on and the screen is blank. Then the screen says no input and turns to power saving mode.
I'm pretty sure the hard drive is good. Guess I'll check that later, but it worked in the house. Also when it is in the blank state like that, I can't use the power button either...
I'm so confused! :nutz:
And all this money for something not working is making me :mad: !
