I have a brand new Dell XPS 8100 which was delivered last week. So far I have experienced about 20 power losses to the computer. Dell insisted this was an issues with the motherboard or heatsink and have since been out to replace both parts. This did not resolve the issue. I think the issue is with surge protectors. When the computer is connected to a surge protector I experience random power losses. When the computer is connected directly into the wall, there are no power losses. The computer "experts" at PC World insist the surge protector make no difference to the power dispite there being a clear link between the two. I would just like to point out that I have tried many different surge protectors, and even have purchased a new one. Can anyone explain this?
