    When posting in a Windows XP newsgroup then it would help mentioning the
    word "Windows" once every so often. If this is a hardware question then a
    hardware newsgroup might be a better place to post it.

    Dell says?
    (There web pages, parts and accessories pages, etc work whether you have a
    warranty or not.)

    My suggestion - just buy an adapter for the adapter you have/can get easily
    that adapts to what you need. There are many universal ones.

    Or call Dell. They'll sell it to you/give you the part number, etc.

    If the power pack states that is is capable of 110-120 volt 60 cycle and
    220-250 volt 50 cycle AC input then simply purchase an adaptor plug which
    will convert the standard US 2 plug with ground to the standard England
    plug. See here for examples of the two types of plugs you may encounter in
    the United Kingdom http://www.walkabouttravelgear.com/c_uk.htm and most of
    Europe uses http://www.walkabouttravelgear.com/c_ger.htm.

    This web site has proven invaluable for me when I am going to a foreign
    country to see exactly what is used there.
    http://www.walkabouttravelgear.com/wwelect.htm

    I have a complete set of adaptors for my computer's power supply. Also note
    whether your computer power cable is two or three wire where it plugs into
    the wall. The two round plug adapter will NOT work with a three wire US
    plug. For that you need the three wire adaptor (listed at $7.00 on the
    site.)

    You could always look for a replacement for the DA90PS2-00 on a UK laptop
    parts site.

    http://www.uklaptoppower.com/item-ac.php/dell,studio_14,laptop-ac-adapter/

    It would help if someone from the UK would respond, to make sure this
    is what they use for typical outlets. This is a dual switched outlet,
    with shutters on the non-earth pins. It looks like it might match
    the cord end on the above adapter. Wikipedia has a few different articles
    on power outlets.

    Yes all (or at least *almost* all) do.

    Those are useful pictures, but in terms of buying from them, they seem
    expensive to me. I have a pretty complete set of such adapters; I
    can't remember where I bought it or what I paid for it, but it wasn't
    very much.

    And I see that Amazon.com has an "All-in-One Travel Power Plug Adapter
    for US, UK, EU, AU" for $4.83. I think I'll get one of these the next
    time I order from Amazon, since it's easier to have one adapter to
    travel with, rather than a set of them.

    In addition
    I'd check eBay UK
    I bought a 90W PS for my Vostro 1500 for 9 bucks
    Wasn't OEM but Meet's all the Voltage requirements

    Yes, Ken, I didn't order from them either. Wish I could remember where I
    bought my "set" of individual adaptors but I purchased them over 5 years
    ago. They were not too expensive then and IIRC paid about $7 for the entire
    set.

    I have tried the all-in-one power plug adaptor and didn't like it. Bought
    one from Radio Shack (yeah, I know but supposedly a good one) and it just
    didn't fit correctly and was also the size of all my other adaptors
    combined. Another model also just didn't fit my needs. Still have both of
    them but leave them home and take my individual adaptors.

    Thanks for the info. I'm almost talked out of getting one, but this is
    Amazon rather than Radio Shack. And worst case, I'm out only $4.83.

    BTW there is no such thing as a European wall socket/plug. Every country
    has its own. The voltage is always in the 220-240 range, usually 50Hz so any
    PSU that accepts this range will do. An American lead and a multi-adapter are
    as good as any.

    In fact, even the wiring schemes and regulations differ. The cable we use
    here is not permitted in France, for example, because they insulate the earth
    wire, we do not.

    Yet, Brussels recently forced us to start using cable with brown/blue cores
    instead of red/black.

    Europe=Crazy. But then, bureaucracy and commonsense never did mix.

    I need European Plug type, not UK. I don't want use US/EU adapters.
    Can someone tell me exact Dell part No of EU version of 3-prong Power Cord
    for PA-10/PA-12 AC adapter?
    Existing cord is 3-wire flat Power Cord "hammer" head type. Head is like
    this, but "hammer" type:

    Yes, have asked Dell Support Representative. They say they "have no this
    type of power cord". And they "only have Power Cables for US, Argentina and
    Brasil." and recommended use Targus Travel Adapter (which is far more
    expensive).

    If this is what you're looking for, you can get a whole power supply for
    less than $20US.
