    Hi mrbean
    Look like you were right replaced the M2-ATX power supply with the M4-ATX 250w and I got the same
    Flickering problem like you said something to do with the ground. Do you have any more ideas on how to fix it?

    Mmm....you could potentially tie the pc earth (negative) down to an (vehicle) earthpoint close to the carputer - this might rid you of the problem.

    I am finalizing my carputer enclosure for the Commell LS-372 board, and will get it in in the next few weeks - will then do some tests to determine what will work best.

    We may even need some pretty decent filtering caps on the psu-inputs to the pc and LCD, especially the lcd - and as close to the lcd as possible.

    Luv your ICC, looking neat - and with the Core-2-Duo logo, no mistaking for what's driving it. Did you get the overlay controls working, i.e if you adjust fan-blower etc, it should come ontop of your Centrafuse display, and turn off after a few seconds....

    I never had a problem with the factory video-overlay the only problem I had is the flickering factory screen. You said something about filtering caps on the psu-inputs

    Carputer in the Terri

    Bean - great build. CNX, getting an overlay soon. Can I ask a coupla questions? Is going the Commell LS-372 much better than a mini ITX mobo? Is there any out there that will do the right vido mode- Or I have to go the CGA card? Some mini ITX are 12v in, should I still go a dc-dc supply? And.... get the amplified Ford audio cable? Or can the pc gain it up enough? Thanks

    btw its mynameisplayer...dang typo
