Windows 7: Graphics card burning (replaced) last night sub woofer done the same.

26 May 2014   #21

Windows 7 Ultimate x64, & Mac OS X 10.9.2

a surge protector works exactly the same as a normal extension lead, its just designed to be able to withstand and absorb varients in current, known as a spike. this spike would normally go straight to your psu and fry it!

some surge protection extensions are disposable, once a surge has come it will have an indication such as a light and should then be replaced. some have reset features, and others just work on and on.
basically just plug it in and forget about it!
