    Since you didnt post anything specific to your make/model laptop and wether or not you have an amplifier in the car...
    -Get an auto/air style universal laptop power supply from eBay
    -read the how to threads on here as to hooking up the sound. Its the same on all carputers.

    Read all the faq's here:

    And this cable has a headphone jack on one end and RCA jacks on the other:

    Click on the photo and it will whisk you away to the mp3car.com store where you can purchase said cable.
    I think you know where the headphone jack goes. The RCA jacks go to your headunit with aux-in or amplifier.

    What? No aux in or amplifier? Look into a casette adapter.

    What? No casette player? Look into an FM modulator. Wired ones produce better sound quality, but none of them produce very good sound quality.

    Keep reading the FAQs. You have much to learn.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    You may beable to purchase a CD changer port to RCA adapter with an item like this http://cgi.ebay.com/Kenwood-Auxiliar...QQcmdZViewItem
    but that depends what kind of head unit you have. Then make many different brands of these adapters, ya just gotta search for them.
