    Take a look at the AC power brick you have. It should list the output voltage & amperage on it.
    If you can find an auto power adapter for a laptop that matches the output voltage (with sufficient amperage) for your e-PC, you're golden. I don't expect that you'll find one, though.
    Never fear. That's why Carnetix is in business. Check the P1900 or P2140.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    That explains it.
    The M2ATX is an ATX-compliant PSU while the Carnetix provides a single output voltage.

    Can I use the M2-ATX with my hp e-pc 42?
    Threadjacking is bad, mmm-kay.

    And I don't think you can, as the HP motherboard is not ATX-compliant. You'd have to open the ePC to find out.

    If its not, that's what the carnetix models are for.
