The story came from a guy named Jaguar online. He said that he basically doubles the apps and it fired EVERYTHING. Not sure if theres truth behind it. But it is a very stupid but easy mistake to do. I am pretty sure verything was fried. See in the states your going from 110 to 240 that frys the PSU and nothing esle. But in Euro if you go from 240 to 110 your doubling the Apps or somthing along those lines frying the computer. Feel sorry for the kid.
