You should call the store on monday. It sounds like some hardware has failed.
I can't figure this one out, I purchased the streetdeck and had it installed today...I have spent HOURS trying to figure out why every time it boots up my Lilliput 629 shuts off. I tried hooking an external monitor to it and it had the same problem (actually in this case I got all "squiggly lines" - I have tried everything - the only way I can get any monitor to work on this thing is by disabling the inte 915gm drivers or by booting into "VGA Mode" - which in both scenarios, StreetDeck software won't load. I am tired, thinking I need a new video card, but not wanting to fork out any more money after all the money I have spent on amps, computers, and installs...
Oh yeah, and the navigation fails too (I was able to keep the monitor going for 10 seconds - until it rebooted) - streetdeck dies and gives some nasty errors (that can't be clicked away without rebooting)
Any ideas anyone that doesn't involve a hammer??
My GPS fails some times and throws an error! I try to autodetect the unit and it doesn't see it. It doesn't look like its playing well with MS Mappoint. Any ideas? On a other note, where is the streetdeck log file stored and can I view it with Notepad?
Ok, so I got the vga.exe installer to work and it told me it was the wrong one for the board (no hardware found) - HOWEVER, I reinstalled all the intel drivers from the cd - and it worked (for the moment). I have also installed the latest 915GM drivers from intel with no success... While it was working, I ran Streetdeck, and the program is outstanding when it actually works, but I shut off the power to the car, which put it in hibernation mode, put the power back on, and the Lilliput screen reports - NO VGA INPUT - This is the original issue that has been really getting on my nerves. I didn't try the regular monitor again, but I could assume it's the same crap all over again. Well, I have once again spent way too much time on this tonight and nothing ever works - I will call tomorrow and see where we get.
And what about the bios settings for the video card with this monitor as well? Has anyone over there ever tried the streetdeck with this monitor? I can't see why this monitor would be the source of all the problems, but I can safely say the monitor is likely non-returnable seeing how the Car Toys installers dissasembled it to get it in the car...
All I wanted was an easy way to play my MP3's and do some NAVI on an awesome system...is that too much to ask?
Only use the drivers found in this thread in the StreetDeck FAQ StreetDeck Driver Downloads The drivers on the CD are slightly older and known to have a known bug that makes the VGA output not work for some people.
What seems in invoke the VGA driver bug is if the VGA cable isn't connected at one time during startup then it will never again detect a monitor even after a reboot. The only way to fix it is to update the driver. The VGA driver should just install but if it won’t try updating the 915 chipset driver first.
Autodetect only works if the GPS has a signal.Originally Posted by pwhite
You can find the logs here:
Where is the log?
The wrong driver was on the FAQ page, this has been corrected.Originally Posted by 06TC_OWNER
We are just not having any luck. So far, I have fixed all the bios settings that were wrong (which consequently made the nice "blue" bios screen come up instead of the black and white). Then we tried reinstalling the drivers in VGA mode, then uninstalling and reinstalling in safemode, and every time it boots back up to windows "NO VGA INPUT" appears on the screen - I can see the initial boot screen, the windows loader screen, then nothing... (but I can hear the computer starting up - windows boot sound). Frankly, in my opinion, it's not the Streetdeck that has all these issues, it's the crappy integrated video card?
