Just a head up based on my recent experience. I removed the in-situ extension cord powering my PC, and connected my PC to a new, short, surge protected extension cord, and immediately various difficulties began. The major problem was the loss of sound on you tube. By replacing the new cord with the old extension i now have the sound back, and i hope all difficulties solved. I will shortly move the PC to plug directly into the circuit/mains with no intermediate extension cords.

Perhaps this is old hat to you people, but, for what it's worth, and grateful for past help on this forum, i thought that i'd post my novice experience.

Well that's a new problem I've never come across before, and a Google search doesn't bring anything up about that.
I've been using surge-protection for my PCs for years and haven't lost sound on youtube or any other problems for that matter.
In fact, what persuaded me to buy my first surge-protected socket block was when an electrical storm toasted my computer's
network card.

As mentioned before, this thread does not belong in this forum. Since you chose to repost it, a vacation seems appropriate for you.

Moving to "Tips".
