EU computer not working in US even with power converters

This is the power supply in the computer

http://microdream.co.uk/acer-aspire-x3200-liteon-pe-5221-08-psu-power-supply.html

What do I need to make this computer work in the US?  

We tried different power converters.. some turn on but then computer turns off shortly after

I am not actually there, so I dont have much details about the power converters.

Would swapping the powersupply with a normal US one work?  or are EU motherboards different too?

Almost definitely yes

> Are EU motherboards different too?
No difference with voltage requirements

Just make sure the new PSU delivers enough watts

You need a powerfully with a 120/240 switch on the back. Use 240 in eu and 120 in us.
