Hello,

I recently bought a new mac mini core solo in america, then took it back to the UK. I hav it running through a converter to UK plug, if that makes a difference.The fans are always on at full power, are extremly load, and just generally annoying.

Does anyone hav any suggestions as to teh problem or a possible solution?
Thanks.

go to your local apple store, they're bound to have a power cable.

the back of our computer looks better than the front of theirs

chief99 i did the same as you, got a mini from the states, had to go back to the local store for something wrong but the tech guy said that when it was in bits he saw that the fans were on all the time and that was wrong. he replaced the logic board (motherboard) and all issues were sorted. for added info when you take yours to the shop take your power lead and transformer as they will try to power it up with one of the old types of supply. yours requires more voltage to operate and a power pack from the older minis do not work. also the intel macs do not support un-powered microphones you need a Griffin iMic ( that was the original issue with mine) mine was done all on warranty but the invoice was for just under 400 quid.
