Can I replace a 240v desktop computers power supply to 110v instead of using a converter?

Am moving to Canada from the UK and am wanting to just convert my power supply (replace the existing 240 supply to 110) but am unsure if it as simple as that.
There is no switch at the back.

Check the power supply rating. It's quite possible that your power supply is 110v to 240v in which case no adaptation will be necessary or it may have a switch on it for 110 or 240. The other thing you need to check is the frequency, UK voltages are 220 AC at 50hz, whereas Canadian is 110v AC at 60hz. Check your power supply to see what voltages and frequencies it can work at, it should be written on the supply or on the PC somewhere at the back. Otherwise, edit the Q and give details on the make and model.

Doru Ubuntu: It is most likely that his PC's power supply will work in Canada, but you should realise that here in the UK it is very rare these days to find PC's with a 110v to 240v switch on the back. Many automatically detect the supply voltage, but some can only work off 240, it really does depend on what PC he has.
In reference to your comment, 'don't listen to this open sauce guy........Why is that then? Almost all electronic products which run off the mains actually run off DC, as it's converted within the unit, yet the supply frequency is very important. Typically, AC voltage enters the PSU and runs through a transformer where it is stepped down to the required voltage/voltages. A bridge rectifier is then used to convert it to DC and the resultant voltage smoothed with suitable capacitors and finally the output voltage runs through a regulator. That's a simple set up but as you must realise PC PSU's are much more complex than that. It is of major importance that the PSU can handle the correct AC frequency or higher voltges could be produced. You should realise the complexity of producing a stable DC voltge from an AC supply.
Alhough it is most likely the questioners PC is able to work on either voltage, he should be aware of the differences in frequency between both countries in case he has to find some other way of stepping down the voltage. For this reason I was correct in pointing it out.
