I was wondering if anyone could recommended a PC repair shop? Ironically, one is about to move in underneath where I live but is yet to open and last night my PC went bang. (It wouldn't turn on - My friend switched the voltage to around 220 from 120 on the back - sparks flew and now it is dead).
If anyone has any advice, or can let me know of somewhere respectable in the area, would be very much appreciated. Thanks!
The 120/240 switch on the power supply must always be at 240 when used in the UK.
Did the PC die before your friend moved the switch or after?
If it died after the switch was moved to 120, then you may have blown a fuse in the internal power supply. It is a simple and cheap matter to replace the fuse but, if you are not familiar with PC internals, leave well alone and unplug your PC from the mains right now!
Very iteresting that a PC repair place is about to open below you. Which part of OKR are you on? PC Stop on the Walworth Road is pretty OK or they may be ~Camberwell Road, not sure where it changes, anyway they're above Iceland.
I fix pcs. if you were set at 110 on your psu, did you get it from america? I would not bother with any fuse changing, don't touch the psu, just change it. hopefully you won't have fried your motherboard or cpu (processor).
