try looking at the FAQ section and then popping over to the power supply forums.
I was wondering , I hav a desktop Pc at my home , its a small atx Pc (i don't hav pictures) can I use it as a carpc????? ( the main problem is the power supply!!) because other things like touch screen & Dvd room is simply pluged to it.
1. aslong as the computer dosent use to much power yes you can most likley (with out seeing it, knowing what it is) use it as a car pc.
probably the easiest (note. easiest, not best/most efficient/etc.) way to power it would be to use an inverter whitch converts the cars 12vDC power to 110v or 240vAC (what goes into your regular household power supply).
or aslong as your computer dosent use too much power you could probably use a DC-DC power supply whitch converts the cars 12VDC power into the voltages the computer needs (12V DC, 5VDC, etc.).
for examples checkout the mp3car store here
i agree with Enforcer and also reccomend to read the FAQ section and the PPOWER SUPPLY of the forums.
just a tip, with a question like this if you be VERY specific about the EXACT hardware concerned people can help you alot more easily and can be more precise (eg. weather or not somthing will work).
hope this helps
