I have my macbook pro in my bedroom, & a power strip, but all the outlets are 2 prongs. I dont have any knowledge of electrical wiring, so any suggestions on just changing the outlet to 3 prong wont work for now, nor do I have alot of money to hire an electrician. I live at home with family, I dont own the house, so I cannot be drilling holes in the wall, running long wires outdoors or doing anything that will blow out our breakers. I need something simple that will not require a major upheaval. I read that one can attach a wire to the little metal part of a 2 to 3 prong adapter & run the wire to a pipe. the best that I could do would be to attach some sort of wire to the 2 to 3 prong adapters metal piece, & attach or wrap the other end of the wire to something metal in my room, maybe bring in a small piece of pipe & wrap the wire around that. The outlet is awkward to get to, it is behind my desk. Would this work? & how do I do it to avoid shock or circuit blowout? what type of wire could I use? right now, I have had the power strip plugged into the 2 to 3 prong adapter with is plugged into the outlet, & it had 2 lights on; one red for not protected, the other green; for grounded, they both glow on at the same time.
