Need to confirm.. Powering my LCD via M2-ITX
I am getting a lot of interferance on my LCD screen when its wired direct into the car and i also get problems with the screen failing to start when i crank the engine -it just sits there flickering.
I was thinking about powering the LCD from the M2-ATX psu in the pc so then the screen has a regulated current and cranking protection. To do this i was going to take a +12v and 0v from one of the 4-wire IDE molex power cables -just like when you tap into, to power a CPU fan etc.
The screen is a Dynamix 8" LCD (same as Tview?).
Just need to confirm that this idea will be ok?
And while im here, I also installed a slimline PS2 which works fine but dies if you crank the engine. it uses a cig lighter dc~dc psu. could i also wire this into the M2-ATX -obv keeping the ps2 PSU in place as it runs on 6v. Or will this and the LCD start drawing a few more watts than the M2-ATX can handle?
Thanks for the help
