Default Can't find out if my laptop will have problems using European power

I'm going to be traveling through a number of countries in Europe this summer from America and I'm a little paranoid that I might screw up my laptop. I've heard that some laptops have no problems but others can get screwed up royally and I have no idea of how to find out if mine could handle 220 VAC that I think some countries use.

My laptop is an HP Pavilion zt3000

that depends on what power output those countries have, they can vary.
in Australia the standard is 240V 60HZ AC
