Post fit-PC2i, will only start when monitor is connected
Hi,

I have 3 fit-PC2i 1.6Ghz. And two problems...

1) Wont power up
When a screen is not connected to the fitPC, it's 50/50 chance it will power up when i connect the DC adaptor. The HDD LED flashes shortly when power is connected but then nothing else happens.

Apparantly connecting a DVI monitor to the fitPC solves the problem.

When the fitPC is in this state i cannot power it up by pressing the button, and it does consume some power because it becomes hot.

2) Heat / freeze, wont power up
Several times when the room temperature rises, the fitPC has frozen (Windows 7), the screen goes completely blank and it is not possible to ping the machine on the network. The power led lights up, but no response. Holding the power button until it shuts down sometimes makes it impossible to power-up the fit-PC for 5-10 minuttes. The fit-pc reaches about 55 degrees, reported by speedfan.

Are any of these 2 issues well-known?
At least one other person has mentioned the problem with the fitPC not starting without the monitor connected.

Hi,

No other cables are attached.

When connecting ONLY powercable it's 50/50 chance it will power up or not. If DVI cable is connected to a monitor before power cable is connected, then it powers up correctly when power cable is attached.

It did not help to restore BIOS to default settings.

Afterwards it did power up the first time power was connected, but the next 5 times power was connected nothing happened.

And this is not caused by a bad connection to the power adapter, because the hdd led flashes shortly and the FitPC becomes hot even though it will not power up. So power is fine.

So... any feedback on my problems?

Could you tell me if this is an issue you have ever heard of before, or is this the only time anyone mentions this problem?

Hello

We were unable to reproduce your problem. I think you should consider to use your warranty

Thanks
