Question about Computers & Internet
To my knowledge most current laptop AC adapter are designated/designed to be autovolt. This refers to the capability of the adapter to accept (without any problem) any voltage anywhere and still process it to a useful output that the laptop can use. This could be verified by looking over the sticker/nameplate of the adapter. If it says 1--~240VAC, then it is auto volt. The next area of concern would be the way the AC plugs are designed. US standards differs from European and for the AC adapter/charger to fit the European wall outlets, some sort of mechanical adapter is required. Most US AC plugs are parallel polarized flat prongs whereas Europeans would be small circular prongs.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
