After loosing half of my motherboard through a spike caused by a power cut.
I purchased a Belkin surge cube surge protector, when I plug my PC into the surge protector it hangs on the windows 7 splash screen.
In safe mode it loads all the windows files and then it hangs.
After I removed the surge protector my pc took an age to boot.
Hours later it was booting fine.
Any one with any ideas?
Cheers BruzSurge protector
Thanks lotvic for your reply.
I have now found another user with the same problem as I have.
They told him it must be incompatibility with his PSU.
I think that must be right as after unplugging the cube the PC took an age to boot up.
After two or three boot ups it started to work correctly.
I plugged the cube into a wall socket and plugged a socket tester into it and it appears to be ok, both the cube lights were on and all three of the socket testers lights were on.
After reading some of the reviews and some of the outcomes I will go without a surge protector.
Thanks again for your response.
