My PC recently died, I believe due to an electricity problem - my house alarm was set off and neighbours report their lights having been brighter than normal. I did have a 'surge' protector which I bought in B&Q but I never registered it so it is worthless. Having read the t&c's for the surge protector I don't think I would have got anything anyway.
I have now bought a Belkin surge protector as they 'appear' to be best but I have just realised something - they make no mention of protection when the PC is switched off but still plugged in, which is when my problem occurred. Can anyone tell me if these surge protectors provide any protection when switched off?
