Welcome to the site.
New to the site, though I would introduce myself. Great site, thanks to skeurton for pointing to it on mazda6tech.com. Ive got a few questions on applying power, but I will search and read before I post anything. Thanks for the site and I will post updates on my progress as it well......progresses. Maybe a worglog even.
Welcome to the site.
So, after a year of BS'ing about doing this, I finally took the first step. Ordered a 7" Xenarc TSV. Still up in the air about which direction I want to go with my PC set-up. I have a Laptop just collectiong dust (Compaq Presario 2100), and I have enough saved to get a real car-pc. I read the Laptop vs. PC thread, but Im still not sure.
If I do go with the PC route, Im gonna get the MP3Car Custom Car Computer (3688). Nothing fancy on it because I have an external 200 gig HDD and an External DVD player(USB), but I have a few questions.
1. It comes with the M1 ATX PS. Is that a DC-DC converter, or a start-up shut-down controller?
2. a. How do I get the PC to start back up if I put it in Hibernate? I plan to have trhe PC in the back. DO I just touch the touchscreen? Or do I have to remote the start button to the front of the car?
b. On the same note, do you use the setting in windows to put it in hibernate? Or do you use a jumper on the PS so that it knows to go in hibernate when you hit the on/off button? If someone could clear that issue up it would be great. I just dont want to have the carputer up and running, cut off the car to go to the store for 5 min, then comeback and have to redo the whole sequence?
What would really be great is a quickly made wiring diagram if anyone could hook me up. I know this is alot, but I wanna get this done right the first time. Thanks everyone.

lol, its cool. Im sure you guys hear all the timne from guys who just signed up and asked a unresearched question. As much as I havnt read EVERY single thread out there, I have read a bit, but Im still a little noobish. I have a good/long history with computers and fabrication, so thats not my problem. Im just confused about all the power options. I just read he Power Supply thread again, and it helped a little more, but I still need to get a good direction pointed to help me out.
