    yes you can. Your car computer is, after all, just your house computer put in a car.

    When working on mine, I use an old computer PSU to power my opus90 (just by tapping into one of it's +12volt lines)

    if you are using an ATX power supply, you have to short some pins to get it to power up. Short pin 14 against any of the "COM" pins (i.e. 15) http://www.duxcw.com/faq/ps/ps1.htm
