Could also be an exploding capacitor. I have only seen this with Intel motherboards and never a Foxconn.

The exploding capacitor thing usually starts the PC and dies run away.

That said I use one D525 in one car and have an old D470 in the other car.

Would you sell your D525 to me as is? Don't need the case here. Just the motherboard.

I can try to fix it here to replace the current D470 Atom CPU.

I am looking to go from embedded XP to W7 64 bit on the car PC.

Here is a picture of the car PC. Took it out today to run check disk and defrag on it as it's been booting a tad slow.

It uses an automotive style picoPSU and the accessory ignition on to power on and off.

The carpc is now over 10 years old. Entire music collection is on the hard drives. It connects to a bus device and comes up on the car HU menu. It uses Microsoft SAPI and a GPS program (which is better than the automobile GPS).

Updated motherboard with a 2550 instead with 4Gb of RAM. If you want to send me the motherboard I can probably fix it here.
