I have been given a dell dimension 3000 that has come from america, how do i change 115v to 140v. from rae


You cannot change it without replacing the power sypply. When that machine came from the factory the power supply was designed to operate on 115v or 230v. There is a switch on the back that allows you to do that, but those are the only two choices. You may be able to buy a 140v power supply for that machine on eBay. Otherwise you will have to get one from Dell. You might try contacting a computer store in your country to see if they have one that was pulled out of a dead machine.

My computer will not come on , it is plugged the screem is in power save , it sound like it's dead, I have no solution can you help


Check the power supply first to make sure it hasn't gone bad. Note: I had a case where somebody changed the input voltage from 115V to 230V. It did not work on a 120 Volt outlet until I discovered the red slide switch on the back of the power supply was in the wrong position. Maybe somebody thought it was an on/off switch. It isn't often that people get off so easily, but it's worth a look.

(The voltage setting switch is next to the power cord socket, is generally recessed slightly so it's hard to mess with it. Usually it's colored red, but is sometimes black, and is always marked 115V in the correct position for U. S. operation. If it reads 230V that is the problem, unless you are outside North America and using 230 Volt power. In that situation setting it to 115V may cause major damage.)

Just installed a new pump. After one minute of operation it shuts down. Why?


The pump is capable of 115V or 230V operation.

Most likely what is causing your pump to shut down is the thermal overload.
Possible causes of thermal overload:
1. 230 V winding powered by 115V
2. 115V winding powered by 230V

Recheck your connections per the diagram either in the owners manual OR on the label of the motor.

When a NEW pump has issues almost every time the problem is in the connecting wiring either from the main power supply or on the motor terminal lugs.

Just look closely at the wires.. IF your absolutely sure that it is connected correctly. Go to the main power panel.. Push the CB for the pump to OFF hard and then back to on. (This resets the breakers) If it repeats... the symptoms... I need to know what wires you have connected up on the motor to what terminals by LABEL of each terminal.

Ok i neeed help!!!!!!!! on my power supply there is a switch which you can move to 115 volts to 230 volts. everytime i switch it to 230 volts the computer wont turn on? why is this happening? when i put it...


This is the power supply for your PC, depend on your local country power supply, some country like North US may use 110 V in their daily use electrical stuff and some country like Euro, UK use 240 V.

Your PC power supply is design to suit this 2 type of power input so can be sold everywhere. What u need to do is to make sure your local country power supply voltage and then just switch the input correctly, i think u have done it.

My computer when in 115v it turns on and then immediately off


Switch the power button on the rear of the supply back to 115V.
Have someone remove the supply and replace with the same.
Sometime, just disconnecting the supply connections at the motherboard and re-connecting them, resets the supply.
I would go that rout first and go from their.

NPS-460AP, How to change to 230VAC


On the back should be a switch that reads 115v. There is a little notch that you can slide the switch and you can change it to 230v. Then at that point the power suppy will be setup to be ran for 230v.

Compaq presario sr1115cl wont power up


Remove the power supply after everything is unplugged and take it to your nearest electronics store. They should have a tester there. This is probably the problem.

Dell 4600 motherboard


That particular Dell uses a power supply with non-standard wiring. The plug is the same size as an ATX plug, but it's wired differently. If you were to replace motherboard & plug in the standard power supply, it would damage the supply, or the motherboard, or both. Also, the front panel plugs (for power & power LED & hard drive indicator) are proprietary as well. Ideally you should replace it with another Dell Dimension 4600 motherboard. I've found replacements for reasonable prices on some of the auction places on the web. I recently replaced a failed motherboard in my Dimension 8300 with one I got from a popular auction site, I think my cost was about $59 plus shipping.

The other option would be to remove the hard drive, video card (if any), and optical drives, and consider a 'barebones' package from various sites such as geeks or newegg.

Sony VAIO VGC-RB50 No Power


Most likely you have a problem with your power supply. First off make sure your Input voltage selector switch is properly set. This switch should be located next to the power cord. In most cases it is red in color, and will have "115V" and "230V" printed on the switch. I have seen red switches and black switches, but mostly red. I you live in the US, you should see "115V", Europe is "230V". Before flipping the switch, unplug power cord.

Since the light is blinking, you are getting power to the power supply. The power supply might be bad, and you need a new one.
