LCD voltages

by Guerito / February 29, 2008 10:32 PM PST

I bought an Acer 17" monitor in England where the mains voltage is 220-240v. I am going to Mexico in a month where the voltage is 110v. I checked the manual for the monitor and it states that the voltage required for the monitor is from 100-240v. This seems an extreme voltage range, do you think my monitor will work in Mexico?
Thanks for any advice.

To be on the safe side

To be on the safe side, I would buy some sort of adapter. That, or depending on how long you're going to be in Mexico, it might just be cheaper to buy a new monitor rather than have your current one sent across the pond.

This is fine, proper and

What many call "open voltage" or world voltage capable. In your case an adapter is uncalled for and a waste of cash.

I've travelled across "the pond" several times with my hard drives have travelled from Mexico, England, Geramny and France, all have survived, obviously when I had CRT montitors it was too much to carry but thanks for the advice, I'll give the LCD a chance in Mexico.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
