  • Book PC DC-DC

    Okay, ive search the forum and have come up empty with a similar pose...sorry if this is a re-post. But anyways, I've got one of the older gen Book PCs and it does not have a standard AT or ATX connection on it. It has 2 rows of 3 pins. Do I have a DC-DC option or am I stuck with my inverter?
    Thanks,

    I really dont have a definite answer, but couldnt you just figure out that the rows of pins do and wire it up to the DC-DC? hey man have you gotten any pics of the runner yet? I really want to see it!

      Look on the power supply, see what it's outputs are. I have a book PC that has a mobo that runs off of +12 and +5 standby and that is it! It is not standard ATX however, so you probably need something else.

        Well ****.

        My BookPC has two connectors. One looks like a standard disk drive (5v+12v) connector, the other is yellow (12v), green (ps-on) signal and purple (5vsb).

        However, I'm going to have to get this machine replaced with the msi model, the one with serial/firewire/pci slots. I don't know how the power connectors will be on that.

        jeff, how hard would be to get an appropriate connector madeup for a dc-dc I order from you, once I get my msi and can take a look?

          Well, I'm not sure. If it is just a connector, probably pretty easy! But if the supply requirements change, it might be harder.

            The BookPC power supply supplies:

            6A @ +12V
            1.5A @ 5VSB (purple)

            It gives no indication of how much on red 5V. Black is return, green is 'signal'.

            I ordered my MSI 6215 replacement though, so when I get it I'll check what kind of connectors it has, unless someone who already has one wants to let me know in advance.
