Some PSUs have a selector switch to choose 120V or 240V depending on what you power company suppies. The US is 120V while most of the rest of the world is 240V. Modern PSUs do this without a switch though.

You should install and use Downloads | techPowerUp For the CPU and Downloads | techPowerUp for the GPU.

Does the PSU have the afore mentioned switch? Id so move it to what Sweden's voltage is. Actually If it is set wrong, I don't think it will power up at all.
Post the PSU make and model number, Alienware models are not consistent.
