Notebook: 110 vs 220V

This question is, most probably a silly one. Just want to make certain not to do anything stupid. I am going to Europe with my HP Pavilion notebook. I inspected machine for any 110 / 220V switch, nothing found. Power adapter (90 W), however, lists the range of 110 to 240V, frequency 50-60 Hz.

What I am asking for is a confirmation that I can, providing that I have a proper plug-in adapter, just use the power adapter as is, without any additional adjustments or additions for the whole 110-240 voltage range.

Thank you,
Nick

Hey no problem, As long as your power adapter says 110 -240 v you're good! I have the same thing on mine, live on germany and haven't had any problems!

just need the little plastic adapter for the european style plug. Can find them almost anywhere there.

Have fun in Europe, it's great!

Just to let ya know, your power adapter, which is on your power coard the box thingy, where it says 110 - 240v, does the power conversion for ya. Europe has a different style plug, and the little adapter, just a little plastic thing, is found at any computer store / appliance shoppe / hardware store / electronics store etc... Cost about 40 cent.

Good Luck!
