In the latest edition of the magazine (issue 137 - Dec 2006) there's a feature about preparing your computer for Vista.

On page 85 there's a box-out which deals with installing a new Power Supply Unit, and in the step by step instructions point no. 5 says:-

"Check the voltage switch on the PSU. It should be 110/115V"

That's wrong of course, the UK voltage setting is 220/250V.

DO NOT use the 110/115 setting - your computer's motherboard may be irreparably damaged.

Will the magazine me liable if anyone follows the instructions?
