If your computer is acting slow, it may not be time to get a new laptop or desktop; the culprit may actually be what your PC is plugged into. Keeping a computer plugged into a surge protector is necessary to help protect your pricey investment. But like any electronics, even surge protectors wear down over time and need to be replaced. A worn-out surge protector could be the reason for a slowdown in performance from your computer. To make sure, simply borrow a new surge protector and plug your computer into it. If it acts fine, you’ll know exactly what the reason is.
