Moving from Canada to the UK...what to upgrade
Posted on 1998-03-24
I have just purchased a fully loaded Intel P200MMX complete with 24X CDROM,
32 MB RAM (72 Pin SIMMS)
ATI s3Virge (Rage II) Video card 4MB RAM (VRAM?)
16 Bit Sound Blaster
3Com/USR X2 56K modem
HP 600C Colour deskjet printer
mother board is TX chipset
3.2 GB HD
plus 1.08 GB HD
I am about to be transferred from Canada to Bristol, England. Here in Canada voltage is 120, AC, single phase?, #cycles?, and not sure of amperage.
But in the UK, they've got 240 Volts, AC single phase, 50 cycles (Hz)...plugs of 3 pin, 5 and 13 Amps.
So how and what need fixing? Can I use adapters or will I need new power supplies? For which? I know BT does not support X2 technology for modems...does anyone (in Bristol)? Or is telephony data exchange different altogether?
Please check through my list of componenets and let me know what needs to be done (if anything) with each.
