You are also dealing with the fact the PC has traveled a long distance and your PC tech needs to go over it to check for the usual failures.
I just moved down from the United States to Nigeria with my dell xps410. The power does support both 110V and 230V. I switched it to 230V. Apparently nothing works but there is a green light on the mother board that turns on. Any ideas what could be going wrong? I have tried to clear the cmos by connecting the jumper for 3 minutes. How do I rectify this? Is there any switch or a button just to idiot proof it.

Many of the power supply plugin for AC power to the unit are modular. Along with the switch, built into the plastic for the plug is a pull out fuse holder. The fuse is in a clip and a square hole behind "might" hold a spare. Check the current rating and when switching from 60 to 50 cycles, a ten percent could be added safely to the fuse value to make up for the longer peak currents.
