    Unhappy PCChip BookPC Power Supply...

    Hey All,

    I really need some help. My power supply burnt up and it was so bad it burnt the wiring diagram on the supply. I have no idea now, which wire was what. I don't think I can get a replacement for it but, I do have a couple of extra AT and ATX P.Supplies laying around. I can probably cut the pigtail from the bookpc and wire it to one of the other supplies.

    Can anyone help me maybe use one of those supplies for this???

    Any help would be Greatly Appreiciated!!!

    Frank...

    From my beige bookpc:

    My BookPC has two connectors. One looks like a standard disk drive (5v+12v) connector, the other is yellow (12v), green (ps-on) signal and purple (5vsb).

    6A @ +12V
    1.5A @ 5VSB (purple)

    It gives no indication of how much on red 5V. Black is return, green is 'signal'.
