    M2-ATX - Problems Starting Up

    Hey all,

    I have been running the same setup since May of this year...

    Recently, I was leaving work, went to start the car and the PC never started... I thought it was odd, came home, and checked over all of the wiring... Nothing disconnected, nothing out of place...

    I turned the ignition on and pulled off the remote lead from the M2 to the CPU and low-and-behold the PC turns on... I replace the remote lead and the PC shuts off...

    I give it a few moments, turn the ignition back on and nothing... Ignition on and remove the remote lead and it starts up again, and runs fine.

    My problem is, I can't get it to turn on or run with the remote lead connected. I have not made any hardware or software changes in a few months. When the remote lead is connected and I turn the ignition on, the mobo light does light up to show me there is power, just doesn't kick on.

    Any ideas?

    Sounds like something happened to the M2, like perhaps the transister/relay that "closes" the startup/shutdown button isn't opening. That, or the M2 shifted, and those pins are not grounded, causing the MB to think the button is permanently pressed, or perhaps, a little piece of metal somehow got in there, and is shorting the connector. If there is no physial problem (like gorunding) then the unit may have gone bad.
