EMI Effect a MAME cabinet?
03/05/11 06:00 PM


For a long time, I have had trouble out of the actual computer unit in my cabinet.

I've swapped nearly everything:

- Motherboard
- Arcade VGA Card
- Processor & RAM
- Reformatted

And it STILL is showing the same symptoms:

- Random Game crashes
- Random Reboots
- Random Blue Screens
- Random program crashes

This has been going on for years.... and it is mostly unplayed because of these flaws.

And last night I had a thought.... what about EMI? My motherboard is mounted sideways and it merely 15 or so inches away from the arcade monitor with no shielding. Could this be what is causing my problems?
