    European Power Supply

    Roomates are moving to Greece.. want to bring their pc wich currently runs on 110vac.. want to be able to run on 240vac..

    Q: can this be safely accomplished?

    Q: If so, can I just put in a european power supply..?

    Q: If so, any good links to a site that sell european power supplies..??


    I would much rather change the power supply than to run the sensitive pc from a 110/240 coverter.. which seem to be kinda hit or miss just with regular american appliances..

    thanks in advance.

    Decent power supplies usually include a switch to toggle between 110V/230-240V AC. You might wanna look for one of them.

    Here is a very very easy fix. Look at the back of your PSU...notice the red switch? Flip that and BAM volts change!
