    What is your mobo/cpu combo?
    Also, unplug the amp and see if the carpc boot up and function.
    I'm thinking that the PSU doesn't get enough power. So you either run BIGGER wire from the battery to the distro block and branch it out to the amp and carpc.

    Again:
    WHAT ARE THE MOTHERBOARD/CPU/RAM/HDD YOU ARE USING?!?!?!?

    Please forgive my outburst. We are trying to help you pinpoint the problem. Part of that troubleshooting process is information gathering. If the cause of your problem is too high a power draw, then the details of your PC setup whould help us to diagnose that.

    Help us help you, amigo.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    Use a meter and check what is the battery voltage AT the PSU. It shoudl be about the same voltage reading as it was AT the battery.
    Also check the output reading on all power rail from the PSU (5V, 3.3V, 12V...)

    Your setup probably only uses half of what the DSATX capable of.

    If the PC isn't POSTing using a DSATX, then something is horribly wrong.
