    Carnitx 1900 + AOpen MiniPC- where to hook in the startup/shutdown wires?

    I have a new Carnitx powersupply and the AOpen 910 mini PC. Wondering if anyone has been able to hookup the startup/shutdown leads to their machine, since it is a very small and sealed up system I was wondering what people might have done to get that aspect to work?

    Don't know about the AOpen but basically you want to look for 2 wires that goes to the power button, just tap those two wires.

    Yes you can do this with a quick soldering job.
    I used cat5e cable I had lying around, and did this both to a laptop and desktop. The laptop is dead, so now I will be using a cheap desktop I bought. It had 4 points soldered to the board, 2 must have been ground the other 2 were for the momentary on switch.

    Works great! I suck at soldering, so if I can pull it off anyone can.
    GL. I will be doing the same for the reset button as well, I'll take some pictures when I get around to it.

    It pretty easy, all you have to do is solder some wire to the on/off swith. Here are some pics from when i did mine, I drilled a hole at the back of mine to let the wires through.

    The carnitix 1900 sound about right at 70 watts. Where did you find it ?
    I'm going Aopen mini PC route now too.

    That pics looks different then the one Kalt did, look where the solder is- between the A and O. Mike yours is next to the A.

    You can use the two pins on either side, they do the same thing. Thanks for the Pic Mike.
