Power Input, Voltage

Specs: Windows Vista
PC was purchased in UK 8 years ago, have moved back to the US, does it have a built in voltage regulator that can take 110 to 240 V like laptops today? Fried an Apple printer 20 yrs ago, no interest in reliving that experience. Thanks

If there is not a switch on the powersupply to go between 110/240V then replace the powersupply with one to suit the local mains voltage.

Thanks Richard59, no switch, so sounds like I need to change the power supply or run it through the step up transformer I had made for other components. Cheers, TDC
