Hi, everyone. I'm worried that by having the PSU switch set on "on" when turning on my surge protector (instead off having it first on "off" then "on" ) the surge of electricity would have negatively affected my computer (my computer was off the entire time). I'm paranoid that I caused some sort of damaged to my computer. Is there any sort damaged to my computer ?
Is my computer damaged ?

It shouldn't matter in what order you set things on.
Are you experiencing any problems ?

A little explanation on good practice may help allay your fears spuntik, PSU switch in the on position and the surge protector disconnected from the wall socket when the computer is not in use, it is the job of the surge protector to control the voltage that gets to the PSU when the surge protector is plugged in and turned on, please note that you should use the most appropriate and best quality surge protector that your budget will allow, a good quality surge protector followed by a UPS and then the computer itself is the safest option and especially if you live in an area that has an unstable electrical supply.
BTW, many computers are located in such a way that there is no easy access to the on/off switch on the PSU itself and so the wall socket is always used and with no detrimental affect to the computer.
