    Your PC needs more than a surge protector for the power cord.

    I never thought about it but desktop computers need surge protectors on any connected line. Last week lightning hit the cable line and fried my computer.

    I had it plugged into a grounded 110 surge protector and never thought about the other conductive connections.

    So I bought a multi-port surge protector containing 110, coaxal, data cable, phone and fax ports.

    I guess this would be a good idea for TVs also.

    Just wanted to let you know since I was oblivious.

    If you find this thread helpful please give me a bump

    One of my old computers suffered this same fate. The surge went through the damn phone line and bam that was it.
