Customer Question
I have an HP...

I have an HP Pavillion laptop and wish to know if I need an adaptor to operate the computer in France where the electrical system is 220 volts and 50 hertz. Thanks! Bill

Technician's Assistant: What Operating System (OS) are you running on your Pavilion?

The operating system that was installed on the computer when I purchased it in Toronto.

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your Pavilion? Have you installed any updates recently?

I have not tried to do anything with respect to this issue. My system is otherwise up to date.

Hi Bill,

Whether or not the power supply is compatible will depend on the voltage range. Some power supplies are dual-voltage and can operate on both systems. If you look on your power supply, it may specify a voltage range like 100-240 volts. If it does, then your power supply is dual-voltage, which is typically the case for HP power supplies.

However, in Europe the shape of the plugs are different so you will at least need an outlet adapter.

So if you want to be on the safe side, get the full electrical adapter. But at the very least, you will need a proper outlet adapter so that your power supply will fit.

If you have any other questions on this, just let me know!
