I have a surge protector that my computer is plugged into. The wiring fault light is on. Is this equipment grounded? Does the surge protector do it's job if it is not? I also have 2 prong outlets in half the house ( I rent ) can a powerstrip or a surge protector protect me in a case of a lighting strike. I thought they only come in 3 prong. A little dispute with my Landlord over this, he is saying that a 2 prong outlet is grounded and that I should buy a powerstrip or surge protector to protect all of my electrical equipment. I will if you can tell me that I could get one that will go in a 2 prong outlet.
Thank you.
