Question about Gateway EV910B Monitor
I have a 19' EV910B monitor that I had bought in the USA. The electrical rating label says it can run on 110 to 240 volts. I am now in a country that uses 220 voltage. However, before I simply plug it in and fry it, does anyone know if there is a voltage toggle switch somewhere on the monitor? I had an older Gateway monitor that did have a toggle, so that you could use it in either a 110 or 220 voltage situation, but the toggle had to be set correctly. However, I can't seem to find one on the EV910B. Can anyone confirm if there is such a toggle switch or not? Thanks.
I dont think there is but there might be a switch inside the housing of the screen i would call gateway! it was sold with a 115v power cord so its proabaly factory set to use 115v you might however be able to change it? if you open the cover to the screen please make sure you know what you are doing TOUCHING THE WRONG THING CAN/WILL KILL YOU!!!!! please be careful :)
