Question about Computers & Internet
Yes my son broght a computer from Peru and it is 220 volts. There is no switch on the back by the electircal connection to switch to 115. I bought converters from Radio shack but the moniter said going to sleep like it was not enough power. How can I get this thing to work without spending to much or ruining the computer? Thanks John Lee Francis
All you need to do is replace the power supply, where the plug plugs into the back of the computer. Power supplies start at around $25.
