Epson Flatbed Scanner CX 5000
Dell flat screen computer monitor
Computer Tower

I'll hazard a guess that you are trying to run these things off of a single household electrical circuit and want to avoid an overload. In that case, the best way is to determine how many Watts each device uses. That information can either be found on the back/bottom of the unit, or on the AC adaptor that came with it. In the latter case, use the "input power" value.

Once you know the wattage, divide by the input voltage - 120 Volts in the US, 100 Volts in Japan, or 240 Volts in Europe, Australia, and much of Asia.

For example...the info on the bottom of my boombox indicates 120V at 16W...

Watts / Volts = Amps
18W / 120V = 0.15A

In another example, my laptop power supply has the following info...

120V-240V @ 160W input
15.4V @ 145W output

I use 120 Volts here so the math goes...

160W / 120V = 1.333A

Note that the output values are not used.

If I want to know how much current the devices use together, I merely add them...

Boombox Amps + Laptop Amps = Total Amps

0.15A + 1.333A = 1.483A

I hope this helps !

Trying to install Nikon Super Coolscan 5000 ED, for some reason the installation disc doesn't have the LS-5000 ED driver software...? I am running Win Vista. Any ideas?

I do not believe Nikon made drivers specifically for Vista, but you can use the solution here to make your own driver "inf" file and install some that will work anyway. Please read this and carefully follow the directions. If you are using 32 bit, use the 32 bit drivers. If 64 bit, then 64 bit drivers, when creating the new inf.
