1 - my 1 1/2 year old desktop Dell XPS 400 Dimension recently crashed.
2 - tech tells me it is the motherboard that has gone bad
3 - called Dell to order another motherboard
asked why the motherboard lasted no longer than 1 1/2 year - it's a Dell
4 - was told if using a surge protector it should be replaced every 2 years
they can cause problems such a mine
5 - My Belking surge protector is at least 4-5 years old
I live in the desert where we have year round outages regularly
especially in the summer
6 - am I being given correct information or is it salesman's talk.
7 - a replacement surge protector costs close to $50. In these times
need to monitor expenditures.
