One step better is a UPS, Uninterruptible Power Supply... it protects from overvaltage, like the good old surge strip, but it also has batteries to keep the old 'puter humming if the power goes off... Just enough time to get the machine shut down... I have one for my system... $49.00 at Wally-World...

Snuffy, glad it worked out for you. That could have been costly.
Have a good day.

Yep, got one of these Lieberts for free from a computer buddy, and it's saved my PC several times. I can go play games on the computer while waiting for the lights to come back on----


Even plugged a lamp into it once for about three hours so we could see to play cards.

Moneywisely, UPS is a must have-type thing. It's much cheaper to replace a battery than a half of the burned-out 'puter's guts.
