How to connect laptop to Carnetix 2140?
I have my carnetix 2140 and my gateway p6a6 laptop with its PA-1650-01 power brick and I can't get it to be powered via the carnetix.
Well silly me, not understanding electricity right away I noticed the INPUT on the AC adapter is 100-240v ~ 1.5a but the OUTPUT is 18v-20v, 3.16A-3.42A
So now I have a carnetix which can only output 20V max on it's main line. I guess I have a few questions then.
1) Where would you find a laptop brick that could operate on just 20V (considering this one needs 100-240v and it's certainly not a beast of a machine)
2) Is my best bet at this point to look into an inverter instead, or a laptop/dc power supply?
How do I connect my laptop to Carnetix 2140?
I've been looking for quite a while now, on the forums as well as google on how to connect these two together. If possible, I am looking to skip using the power brick completely. Most importantly I am looking for a picture of some sort so I know exactly where to snip the laptop cable. Any help would be appreciated greatly.
