    Question spanish mains / UK PC ??

    hello all,

    talk about getting asked odd questions!

    someone in work has just asked me if a UK PC can be used in spain, considering that spanish mains power is likely to be different to UK mains power (well, mains power is mains power, b ut it'll be different voltages etc)

    his folks have just moved to spain & have taken their PC with them & are (obviously) keen not to destroy it when the try using it

    would anyone have any ideas how a UK built PC could be used in spain?? what would be required to get this working - is it just a case of using a travel adaptor or something similar, or is there more to it??

    cheers peeps
    if it ain't broke...fix it till it is

    I'm sure Spain is on a 230V supply. Just buy a kettle cord that fits the European sockets.
