    Maybe you could put it back in and see if you've missed something, like the P4 cable.

    If that doesn't work, then think back: going from the time it was working to the time it wasn't working, what caused its death? Whatever that was, don't let that happen any more.

    I have checked every possible cable. Everything is plugged in. All I did was unplug all of my USB devices, unplug the VGA cable, and disconnect all of the cables from the OPUS. Then I carried it in (it being the CarPC in the case, without the top) and plugged it into my desktop PSU, monitor, keyboard, and mouse so I could do the Windows 7 upgrade, but the screen came up blank... So I grabbed my PCI POST code checker and it showed "cD". I took it back out to the car, hooked everything up, same thing. Used the POST code checker, same code "cD" I don't know what I did wrong, but I have a dead board now...

    I found what the POST code means: cD means a "Shutdown 10 Error" whatever that is... I'm going to call Intel after school today since the board has a 3 year warranty and see what they tell me. If they will replace it, then I'm good. If not, there's another $70 going to a new board(here). I think I'm going to order a new case too, because (no offense rdholtz) this one is kind of on the flimsy side as far as thickness and support go. When I pick up the case, the bottom buckles, and (I believe) that eventually led to cracked traces on this board...

    No offense taken. That case was my first experience at sheet metal work, and it really need the top flange for strength. The lid made it even stiffer. Without that top flange, it probably is a good deal weaker.

    The case you're looking at is pretty slick; I've admired it before.

    Don't you have the D945GCLF2 (Atom 330 dual-core processor) now? You're going back a step with the linked D945GCLF, which has a single core Atom 230 processor. To quote AnandTech: ". . . the D945GCLF2 uses a larger heatsink on the CPU and a smaller one on the GMCH (although it is still cooled by a fan). The board also uses a 24-pin ATX power connector instead of a 20-pin connector, adds S-Video out and a Gigabit Ethernet port (the D945GCLF only has a 10/100 port)."

    You'd only save about $10, and you'd give up some horsepower.

    With luck, Intel will do you some good.

    I was going to question the same, I'd go for the D945GCLF2 as well... since the cost difference is so minimal.

    Actually, I have the same board I linked to. I just messed up when I was putting my specs into my user profile. I'm going to try to call Intel today after school, since their offices are closed weekends and Thanksgiving is coming up.
    I'll be going on vacation for the holiday, so if I am absent for a few days, I AM still alive... I hope...

    Ok... I talked to Intel's RMA support. I have to UPS the current board into them, then they will (hopefully ) send me a new one. Since there is no UPS drop-off locations or drop-boxes here in this spot on the map, I will probably have my mom take it to the office and give it to UPS there. (She works in fire supply sales [re: fire extinguishers, fire hoses, badges, bunker gear, etc.] and UPS is there almost every day picking up and/or dropping off packages. Seems like the best/easiest way to me.) I won't be sending it off until I get back though. Mom took the week off for vacation time, so she doesn't want to go in on her time off, which is understandable.
