What Power Supply for Laptop Install?
Hey guys. I was ******* around with a dead laptop today and managed to fix it so now i'm gonna turn it into a carpc.
How does a laptop install differ from a pc install? I've read the laptop faq and it was all pretty much common sense stuff.
I realise that i will need one of webmaster's auto power on modules to turn it on and off. But what about power supply? Do i just use the same power supply as i would for a carpc? I assume i would have to hack up the laptop power cord to wire it to the PS yes? And don't most power supplies have startup sequences or something built in? Would it conflict? How would the power supply know when to supply power if the auto startup module is handling that?
Auto startup module connected to laptop
laptop cord hacked into regular power supply
xenarc connected to regular power supply
power supply connected to battery
What is missing?
Just trying to get everything clear as possible in my mind before i take the first steps.
edit: my power cord has INPUT: 100-240V 1.5A OUTPUT: DC 19.5V 3.34A
edit: Would the startup module built into the carnetix do exactly the same thing as the webmaster module? It appears that the carnetix one needs to be soldered in, the same way the webmaster module needs to. So it would be easy to pick one or the other and i see how they couldn't conflict.
