Thought I would update you on my INPA progress (Or lack of it!)
If you want a laugh carry on reading this.
Bought the lead and soldered the required pins.
Installed the software last night and all seemed ok.
Decided to use an old xp laptop my in laws gave me at the weekend.
Chickened out on using my Windows 7 laptop, glad I did.
Crept out into the cold this evening to have a go.........
Opened up the INPA software and it came up with a few error messages when I tried selecting my engine type.
Quit out of the software and thought maybe starting the engine would help.
Laptop went dead when I turned on the engine and I can't resurrect it
The laptop only ran with the charger plugged in but the charging light does not even come on now.
Think the power supply is ok as you can hear it buzz when you plug it in to the rear of the laptop. Have checked the fuse.
Well just glad I didn't use my main laptop!
Any suggestions to what may have happened would be a appreciated but I reckon the laptop is fried. Wouldn't have thought a surge via the car would have killed it
but I'm not sure what else could have happened. Maybe just a coincidence that it decide to die when I turned on the car engine?
