Hello.
If that is a desktop PC, you should look for a switch right next to the ac cord connector must the times it is red, you can use a screwdriver to set it to 115 V.( it moves laterally)
Otherwise you can change the power supply, if that is the case, tell me and i would help you to know what to look for.

if it is a laptop simply buy another adapter( 120V to whatever the input voltage of the laptop is).

i hope this help you.

Can i use 220v source to energizer charger chvcm4


you will need a reducing transformer 220volts to 120 volts, you can find one at Radio Shack or Fry's Electronics., European countries uses 220volts, and the plug configurations are different from those of the USA.it is recomended to take one of these transformers with you when you travel abroad.

Incorrect voltage input


Check the fuse. Otherwise there's another fuse at the low voltage transformer itself. it will be covered with plastic tape on the primary winding of the transformer. Just replace it and enjoy your music

Good luck

I have a Dell A525 Speaker system that I bought to use with a Dell projector and an Inspiron laptop computer. It worked fine until I had the computer stolen. Not thinking ahead I bought an HP computer...


The speakers can be used with the HP computer. The connection on the speaker set should look like the connector on a headset or headphones for an ipod. The connection for this can be located on the back of the computer near the location of where you plug in your monitor and keyboard. There also may be another location to plug this in at. If you had recently purchased this laptop, many manufacturers will put a connection the the front of the PC. Usually under a flap of some sort.
