You would need to know the specifications of the Acer power module to see if they match that of the Compaq's
Not only voltage, but amps/watts

I did a google for Acer Aspire x1200.

From what I found it is a small form factor tower that uses a standard power cord.

You say you "got your hands on" it.
Have you popped it open to see if all the components are in it ?
Does it beep when you try to turn it on ?

I should listen to my own advice more often :thumbsup:
Thanks for pointing out my oversight
