    Your surge protector may have outlets that are "protected" and outlets that are directly connected to the power
    Confirm you have connected your computer to the outlet of the Surge protector that offers full protection from Surges.

    Also, a warning sign that the Surge protector was "off" but still allowing power to the "protected circuits" means that it may be faulty
    You will need to read your Surge protector manual to find out what it allows when turned off

    it may be also some of the connectors have possible melted or become burnt while others are still functioning???
