    Unhappy 120w Opus PSU powering laptop question

    ive searched for a couple of weeks...
    only thing i can find related is someone has made another psu for a laptop.
    but i have already purchased the m2-atx and would like to use it if i could...
    maybe someone has a wiring diagram for the psu and how i should connect it to the laptop..
    or please direct me in the right direction...
    or should i just cut my losses and buy the one the guy made for a laptop..????
    any input would be GREATLY Apriciated

    Yeah, powering a laptop with an ATX PSU is going to be quite difficult. You may want to consider going a different direction.

    Yeah, sorry. Probably not what you wanted to hear. All laptops are different in terms of power, you probably won't even be able to find a generic how-to, unless someone else has done the exact same thing with the exact laptop you have.

    Another fine example of why research and planning is always recommended fr newbies before they start purchasing pieces/parts.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    well it was planned well by me..
    but due to unforseen events that limited my $$..
    so instead i had to go with a broken lcd laptop..
    after already having the psu..
    so i was trying to make due with what i had...
    thanks ;]
    and Tidder
    i do appriciate your input...
    i will prolly just get
    The W3bMa5t3r's Laptop Auto Power-On Module

    and hopefully be able to resell this psu on ebay...
