Hi, My three-year old iMac just died (cause unknown), and I bought an eMac. Got the thing all set up and noticed these scary static electricity blips every 15 minutes or so. Sometimes the screen would nearly go black for a split second. The blip was accompanied by a static sound. Ended up returning the computer and am now using a really old iMac in the meantime. Still seeing the blips, although not as frequently. I exchanged the possibly defective eMac, for another eMac but have not set it up yet. I'm now thinking that possibly all the problems are caused by a piece of crap surge protector. Does this sound possible? Any suggestions for a good surge protector for an eMac. I would really appreciate it. Thanks.
