              My $155 65W power solution (DC-DC [no inverter], 10-16V input, input/output isolation, and ATX shutdown):

              Not as cheap as a sproggy, but zero worries and [nearly] zero work.

                  Now I'm interested, that 12V switched mode regulator is a UK supplier!

                  Can you tell me, how well does that supply survive during cranking? Dos it at all? This could be the perfect solution for us UK types, no need even to step down 19 volts to 12!

                  Car changed for TVR Griffith 500, so computer de-installed. Using a Dension 100ix w/60Gb HD unit in the interim.

                    Cranking is not an issue to me because my computer doesn't turn on until AFTER the engine is running.
                    This was not by design, and it has its drawbacks, but I kindof like it this way.
                    My startup problem has something to do with Jeff Mucha's ATX Shutdown Circuit, and is not related to the SwitchedMode regulator itself.

                    The dudes at switchedmode are good guys.
                    They should be able to answer any of your questions.
                    Ask for Robyn Aston.
                    Feel free to let him know that you found them through me (just mention "some guy in Seattle, USA, that bought your 4662 to power a PC in his car...the one you gave the wrong power tip too." ).
                    I DON'T get kickbacks (trust me, I'd like 'em).
                    I just think they are a good company and provide an excellent nitch product and I want them feel that their customers are helping to spread the word about them.

                    Cheers!
