Having problems with your HP Media Center PC 873n (P9875A#ABA) PC Desktop ?

Plugged my US made PC into a 220v outlet!

\015 We moved overseas from the US and we mistakenly plugged our PC into a 220v outlet rather than one of the 110v outlets. I heard a pop and that was it. NO POWER!I've been told that i may be able to recover use of it by possibly removing the motherboard and putting it into another PC. Does any one have any workable solution to this?\015

Answers :

Sound to me like all you need is a new power supply. You should be able to find one online.
\015\012The power supply should have taken all the jolt and not the motherboard.
\015\012If you need help finding a power supply let me know, usually they are pretty generic, but you may have to get one from HP.

\015\012This is the actual power supply from HP, although it might be pricey through them:

\015\012The main thing is, if you can find a pc supply store in your area, this is what you need to tell them:
\015\012
\015\012That you need an ATX power supply, yours only requires 200watts, however, you'll find a hard time finding one with that low wattage. It's okay to purchase a 350W or higher power supply (PSU for short) but the main thing you need to specify is that it has 24 pin connector and a 4 pin connector for the CPU. (It may or may not be used) The power supply should look like this:
\015\012
\015\012http://partsurfer.hp.com/cgi-bin/spi/showphoto?partnumber=0950-4107
\015\012
\015\012The industry has tried to standardize power supplies, so most should fit in your existing case. You don't need a PSU for SATA power, you need to make sure you tell them that you need 7 or 8 Mollex 4 pin connectors.

Check the back of your sub to check your voltage range. You will see something like this: 110V-120V or 110V-220V. If you see the later, you are ready to go. If you see 110-120V only, you will need a power converter to power your speakers as well as a ... Logitech Z-2300 Computer Speakers
