Loc: Florida, USA
I hardly use the carputer these days due to the system being slow as heck. I was heading to work and I thought I would listen to some music. I open the LCD and the screen was flashing "NO SIGNAL" I looked at my thumb drive that sticks out the dash and it has a green light. After a long day at work I got home and pop the trunk and all I could smell was burnt electronics. I turned on the car and as soon as I went back to the trunk there was smoke coming out. I shut off the car and after the light smoke cleared I noticed burn marks on the CPU area. I open the other side of the case and saw under the motherboard where the CPU was burnt to a crisp. I unhooked it and took it inside to try and rebuild it. Sadly I have no extra motherboards laying around that can handle a CPU faster then 166MHz. I took out the HD to see if I can get a copy of my files off and when I had it in my hand I heard something rattle inside. I think the HD bit the dust as well. I haven't tested it yet.
