I had the PC in the house updateing the software when it died. I do not know what happened. All I know I got a funny smell and the it stopped working.
I was thinking of updating the hardware anyway
The new PC is as follows

Ram: 2Gb (From LinITX.COM)
Hard Disk: 320GB (Had from a friends dead laptop.)
Power supply: Carnet CNX-P1290 (From LinITX.COM)
Case: LinITX own case EPC-01
Wireless usb stick.
GPS Recever (to buy yet)
On 11th Augest 2009,
I have spent a evening up on till an hour ago trying to get the aux relay working so it will charge the aux battery. The aux battery charging relay was bought in halfords. I took it a part and discoverd that it had a diode in the wrong way around.
So I scraped that and done it rdholtz way with 30a relay and it is fused at 25a at both sides.
I hope to have time on Thursday to get back at it and get the pc installed
The battery is a 12A hour seal lead acid battery the same type found in ups and burglar alarms.
The reason for the battery is so I can leave the pc in stand by and not kill my main battery.
The way the relay was wired is it will only be on when the engine is running. When I am parked someware and wating for someone I can use the pc of the aux battery and my HU will be powered from the main battery so I should kill the main battery quick.

I have connected up the pc on a test run and it works
Here is some pics sorry thay were taken at 11:00pm
I am using centerfuse because I need the bluetooth for my handsfree when driving.
I had it on a test run today so far the aux battery is still working and the pc is still in standby and I should have my GPS recever tomorrow.
I will hope to be going back to Revff when it improves
