But he is running a laptop, why would he be buying another power suppy like the M1? Anyway, I did use a Kensington auto/air adapter on mine (keeping it DC). I got it for almost nothing on ebay. You could probably use that for both the PC and and the PSX if you dont use them at the same time. Add a switch to transfer power between the two.
Best of luck with the install!
mwmcginn i don't use laptop, just on the photo i plug laptop because at the moment i don't have power suppy :)
RedGTiVR6 u are right, but i check my local stores and polish internet stores and nobody have dc-dc converters so i buy power inverter. I now person who have that power inverter and everything work fine.
About starting everything, i think it will be after plug car key, and after then i can turn on carpc or radio. When i take out key everything is turn off. I now i will have to turn on manually pc, but for the moment i'm starting with all of that so i think in the future will be some upgrades :)
so every time you get out of your car you will just be pulling power from the PC and not shutting it down properly?
I don't know how long your operating system is going to las.
no i will have to hibernate it first, i'm thinking about some system that check if key is plug in (power on specific port) and if not connect pins for turn on/off pc (xp configure to hibernate after power button push) and shot down the pc with time delay.
At the moment i have all staff, but now time to put it in my car.
PC is working on WinXP Pro Mini 2.1 PL and is fest :) (minimum 64MB of ram required)
I will put some new info when i start mounting everything in the car.
what's going on? I have a 1996 Jetta and I was thinking of using the same location, but it seems to be too low to use it while driving.
i just end installation for today, i will put some photos in a few days
at the moment i have all cables in my car, ups battery change 2 use with my pc, motherboard / hdd install in my car, i have already mount the monitor but i will have to work with it more
I understand that you tried your Lilliput EBY701 with your laptop's VGA output first, and now you are using EPIA 10000 VGA output.
Could you please check what was the resolution that worked the best for this monitor in both cases?
Were there any problems getting proper screen size without loosing any parts of the picture?
i think i have 800x600 resolution
on epia it's working fine and i don't remember to have any problems on other stuff
