New Computer On The Way

Recommended Posts

Wed. night during the thunderstorm our computer got fried by lightning strike. Lost the PC, monitor, modem, and surge protector. Went up yesterday and ordered a low end gaming computer that should be ready toward the end of next week. I will have to get on BR from work for a while.

Sorry to hear about all the things fried by lightening. One thing I had added when we had an electrician at our house was a whole house surge. Did not cost much at all for some added protection.

Is your whole house system set on the main incoming line? I got struck by lightning a year ago and the strike hit a large oak in our yard then traveled into my aluminum shed then through an extension cord the went from the shed to the back porch and then proceeded to fry lots of electronics in the house. One of the whole house units offered by the power company would have done nothing to stop my surge.
