I have a dell inspiron 8200 notbook that i have that I'm going to install into my truck. The power turn is on a board that plugs into the motherboard will this turn on unit work with this kind of connection. Any help would be great.
will this module work for inspiron 600m?
Great Module. Mine is working great! What do you suggest for the reverse effect? I find myself using the momentary switch you supplied to put it into sleep. Is there a way to build the box to do the opposite too?
As far as building the reverse mode... I'm sure there is, I just haven't devoted the time to it as I have too many irons in the fire as it is lol. Maybe one of these days
I hooked up your module and the usb function doesnt work - it still shuts down when i turn on the car
just wondering how you wired it because i cut the USB plug and wired it to another extension that goes to my hub - so i dont loose a usb port - im guessing red is + and black is - :P let me know...
im going to have another look at it, but its not workin atm!
anyway i can check if its taking in the power properly etc?
I'm guessing you mean you already have the pc ON then, when you turn on the car? How is your HUB powered in relation to the module and pc?Originally Posted by silicoon
I've attached a pic showing the usb connection on the board. Basically just positive and negative from the usb cable should be read here. +5vdc on the one side, Ground/Negative on the other. Also, when you plug the usb cable in to a port that is powered on, you should hear the smaller, 5vdc relay 'click'.
hey i checked and the relay does tick over when i add power, but it still resets on startup etc...
