Having problems with your Acer AOA150-1690 Aspire Notebook ?

Power conversion from UK to US

\015 Purchased Acer desktop computer in the United Kingdom, and need to switch the power voltage to US standard, but there is no switch. Is there a power converter recommended?\015

Answers :

Check the label on your system's power supply, looking for "120/240 VAC" or something similar. If you find it, then this means that your system has a universal power supply, which supports both 120 VAC (used in US) & 240 VAC (used in UK).
You can also search for this in your system's user manual.
You can also use a UPS which outputs 120/240 VAC. You will also benefit from the clean conditioned voltage output from the UPS, besides the capability to have the chance to power off the system gracefully in case of power outage.
You need to check the rating plate on your power supply
\015\012
\015\012If it was bought in the UK it will be set for 240v 50 hz
\015\012
\015\012The US power supply will be 110v 60hz the supplies are not switchable re power input.

I thought it was the power cord because sometime it would charge and sometimes it wouldn't. Now it is dead. My question, if I replace the motherboard, will that fix the power problem and will it wipe my laptop set up clean or will it be the same as before we couldn't power it up anymore? I thought it was just the powerport going bad so I bought a docking station that charges throug
