a few (newb) questions, as far as wiring and power, etc
mkay, when it comes to electricty, i totally suck and could probably use to a good URL to read up on basics, so if anyone could point me in the right direction on that, much appreciated.
on to the real purpose for the post.
I've got an EPIA-M 600mhz board/proc combo. an 80gb WD 3.5in. hard drive, and a mitsumi 8x dvd drive.
soon, i plan on purchasing a lilliput 7" touchscreen tft display.
as far as power supply, i have the 200w snap in (no wire) power supply for this board as well as the ITPS regulator.
now I have the wiring diagram that was supplied with the itps reg. and the psu, no problem there (as far as i can tell ;x)
now, i'm almost definately positive that the psu will power the hdd and the dvdrom no problem, so thats not really an issue, my real issue is running the power for the lilliput screen, i just saw a diagram that shows it being run off the powersupply, and i'm not really sure if i could, or if i wanted, to do that - i was planning on drawing from the cigarette lighter lead, or something like that, like i said - i'm no electrician ;P
any suggestions as far as powering this screen?
also, any reading material you guys could suggest would be much appreciated, and - what would the the max load on my psu, in your opinion?
thanks a lot :D
