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

My computer when in 115v it turns on and then immediately turns off, even though it has worked on 115v for a year. So I tried switching it to 230v and it stays on but the cpu fan does not work and nothing comes up on the monitor. Is my computer fried or can this be fixed?

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.

Will a Packard bell i media desktop run on united states power ?or is it strictly designed to run on European power ?


Here in the US, and with more than 20 years experience as a computer tech I would venture to answer that almost any computer should work almost anywhere in the world.
You only need to look at the input voltage and make certain the power supply is set to match the line voltage supplied where you are. Standard electricity in Europe is 115v or 220v @ 50hz and in the US it is 115v (almost universally) or 220v (rarely) @ 60hz. The biggest difference is the ac frequency used but for computer power supplies that is immaterial.
A computer power supply converts the ac input power to regulated and filtered 3.3v, 5v, and 12v dc so the ac frequency does not have any affect on the filtered dc output that actually operates the computer. Almost all power supplies have a voltage selector switch near the power cord plug on the back of the computer to choose 115v or 220v. Newer power supplies are designed to be auto selecting on input voltage so even that manual selection is no longer required.

You likely will need a different power cord since the shape of the prongs on power outlets in Europe is always different than here in the US. If I remember correctly from my time in Europe that even varies by country there.

As long as you keep in mind the possible different voltages and the different prong shape and arrangements for the ac power source your packard bell computer should work well here in the US.

Absolute worst case scenario would be that if the power supply already installed in your PC is extremely low quality and was designed to use only one input voltage then it is possible you may need to replace the power supply with one that is designed to be used anywhere.

DeLonghi DD70PE Dehumidifier. Why does pump often stop working and F/P shows an error code until reset?


id be inclined to think that for some reason the pump is taking too long to pump tank out (or it thinks it is ) this would cause the fault you describe and the safety control shuts pump off for fear of a problem

How to gain access of keyboard from virus


Try starting your computer in Safe Mode

To do that

Turn off your computer

then turn it back on

and immediately press and tap the F8 key on the keyboard

even though there's no display yet on the screen

and safe mode is there

you just need to choose it by the arrow keys on the keyboard

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.
