    True Newbie

    Okay I am really new at this but I have purchased a touchscreen monitor (very cool I must say). but I have an extra computer in a regular computer case (laydown tower) can I use it? if so how do I hook the power up to it, it is a regular 110V power cord. Any help here would be very appreicated. I cant afford to start from scratch so if i could use this puter that would be pimp.... thanks

    Easiest way is to use an inverter. Inverter == sux0rs.

    2nd easiest way is to replace the AC-DC PSU with a DC-DC PSU. Which DC-DC depends on your system's specs.

    okay so i bought the CarNetix CNX-P2140 V1.1 Dual Output Regulator but i am a little confused on the wiring so do i need to replace my powersupply in the case with a different one or can i just open up the power supply and find the main power or is it more complicating than that?

    I saw in another post that someone had the same powersupply that i just got but he had a mac (yuck). and the wires were already comming out of the case ready to be hooked up. any other help would be appreciated. Also I downloaded the manual for the CarNetix Powersupply and the manual is version 1.2 but the box and i have here is version 1.1 is there any diffence that i should be awear of? thanks everyone i really do appreciate all the help!

    Do you even know why you purchased that Carnetix unit?
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    If you couldn't afford to start from scratch why didn't you research that PSU before you purchased it?

    I would recomend starting here:

    Then moving onto here:

    http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/advf...iew&advfaqid=3

    and then here:

    Then to here:

    Good luck!
