I purchased Alienware Aurora R12 in USA. I recently moved into India and tried to power up the system. Unfortunately, it's not starting up.
When I press the power button, it stays yellow for couple of sec , then gone.
I can see the green light is on in back.
I can connect keyboard and mouse.
Please help. I tried to connect to support but there is no help.
USA uses 120 VAC. I am not sure what the voltage ratings of the PSU are.
I am also not sure if they use the same physical plug layout.
Also, where did you purchase the R12 from? Dell directly, reseller, was it a new machine, was it a stripped down machine without a video card?
if I am not mistaken Dell does not make different psu of R12 for different geographic locations in the world. I would assume the Dell psu is worldwide applicable, otherwise one would have seen Dell psu specify countries and would have trouble recommending Dell psu to users not knowing where they live.
Dell does provide different R12 power cords for different world regions, which have different plugs and can presumably fit different wall outlet types. the other end of the cord is standard socket connecting to the same type of psu socket.
