    You need to cut that two pin plug off and fit a 110v plug.
    You'll also need a 110v Transformer and a 110v extension lead.
    These are available from
    Here

    Others may advise on which Transformer's required KVA rating etc as I don't have a PC myself.

      Ah yes you will need a 110 convertor with suitable wattage (blew my first one , cheapo plug convertor from Maplin with only 45 watt rating ). I'd recommend this http://www.beststuff.co.uk/pbright_vc750.htm. Costs 54.99 (including delivery) but it's the cheapest I could find that had the appropriate wattage and doesn't require changing the plug from that on the PC. Ordered mine and it arrived about 3 days later - good service from the site and they even emailed me to check when was best to deliver as it's done by courier and needs to be signed for.

                  I have never experienced a roundabout, but wifezilla did when she was out there last November and got sick as a dog in the taxi She said the dude was doing like, 50, and had to go around three or four times because the idiot kept missing the turnoff.

                    We just bought a new house, and my ONLY requirement was a three car garage. Am putting cabinets and a floor in it this week. Will get pics up when I'm done. I actually love it more than the house itself

                        You should see the magic roundabout at heathrow - it's a main roundabout with 5 mini roundabouts as it's exits It's called the magic roundabout due to the amount of americans that get stuck on it and can't find their way off

                          That would be me. After about the fifth time around, I'd finally say "I know I've seen this section before."
