In the latest edition of the magazine (issue 137 - Dec 2006) there's a feature about preparing your computer for Vista.On page 85 there's a box-out which deals with installing a new Power Supply Unit, and in the step by step instructions point no. 5 says:- "Check the voltage switch on the PSU. It should be 110/115V"That's wrong of course, the UK voltage setting is 220/250V.DO NOT use the 110/115 setting - your computer's motherboard may be irreparably damaged.This thread appears in other forum areas.
someone could be in for a shock in more ways than one, lets hope they read the forum too if they follow the article as a learning curve.
I did this once on an old p/c - there was a load bang and that was the end of the p/c
There's no danger of electrical shock - the PSU and motherboard would take the impact, not the computer user.
Ouch.....im guessing a proof reader somewhere is having a fruitfull discussion with the editor!
