Auto Sensing voltage circuit

My Dell Dimension 3000 was purchased in Canada. I am now in the UK and I wish to change the voltage to 240v. There does not appear to be a switch, just 2 red squares under some clear tape. Does this mean that it has an auto sensing voltage circuit or do I have to take the clear tape off the two red squares and do something to them

By default, Dell systems sold in Canada have non PFC power supply. Sad to say for this type of system that is pretty old it doesn't have any ATX that would convert the voltage. It's only applicable on newer systems. You might need to purchase for a PFC power supply this time since the system is in UK.

Dell Dimension 3000 Video problem


There may be a problem with your windows installation. Search Google for Hirens boot CD, it is a free download and should contain a live XP installation. When you turn on the computer tap the appropriate button to reach the boot menu, then insert the CD and select your CD drive. Once booted it should display a live XP.
Alternatively you may have your monitor set to an incompatible resolution. If tapping F8 won't display the advanced boot menu then try finding an auto setup on your monitor or change the resolution using the monitors controls. If the advanced boot menu does display then select low resolution mode.
Hope this helps,

Change voltage from 120v to 240v sony bravia 37L4000


I think that Sony Bravia are sold with dual voltage, 110V and 220V. All 220V devices work also on British 240V network.

If an electronic device is not compatible with the 240V/220V network, then the PSU must be replaced.

In your case the unit should be dual voltage, compatible with 220/240V networks. Just ensure checking the user manual, or the tag at the back of TV.
All you need in that case is an adapter that can be purchased at any local electrical shop (eg. Curry's if you are in UK).

Regards.

Can you use both 120 and 240 power


Canada is 120. U.K. is 240. This is only for the adapter (large block between PC and wall outlet). This adapter changes A.C. current from wall to D.C. current for laptop. If power adapter is from Canada.  You must buy a different power adapter.  These should be available in U.K. Bring old cords and block to computer store so you get the right plug and voltage.

The BIOS will most likely be set to auto detect, when you physically install the new card the BIOS should detect it and auto disable the onboard video.

I am moving to Canada and am taking my Compaq computer with me. Before I go I have to know a couple of things: 1. I need to get the voltage changed to 110 for Canadian power - how and where can this...


Almost all modern electronics will work on almost all power systems. Look at the fine print on the power supply (plugin adapter, brick, etc.) for the Voltage rating, which is usually 110v - 240v. On a desktop CPU, the voltage rating will be near the AC plug on the back. They switch automatically. If your DVDs play on your computer now, they'll play just fine on your computer anywhere on the planet.
