I would say that a good surge suppressor is a required part of any computer (or any sensitive electronics like a computer). There's no way to know whether this will help, but you should have one anyway. A computer should never be unprotected.

Surge protector is for lightning, maybe some amount of overvoltage in the power grid but dunno. Only way to get filtered power is to run an uninterruptible power supply that generates power even while the AC is on, I don't know if all of them do it since that is not very efficient to reconvert stuff.

You've changed like everything but everytime you return the PC to one specific house the PC goes haywire, I would say something is wrong at that house, you can work your way from the PSU. Maybe electric heating or a fridge or something messes up your house power, who knows really. Older or Chinese appliances are not very well filtered and affect other devices on the grid.

No, surge protectors are not for lightning. I learned about this when I had to do a huge amount of research for about a month straight before buying my very first surge protector. I read that they cannot stop a lightning strike and could even allow your stuff to be damaged or destroyed, and what's worse is most of them have a plastic body which is even worse. If they DO manage to stop a lightning strike (which is extremely unlikely), then you can pretty much be guaranteed that your surge protector was killed instantly and was reduced to a simple power strip. Even the indicator LED might still be lit to say that it's still working, but it's really not.

 

Surges are happening all the time, 24/7, directly from the outlet itself. That power is raw. It's not perfectly stable.

 

Then there are the surges and dips that happen when a refrigerator or stand-alone freezer turns on or off, or a dehumidifier, or an air conditioner, or a hair dryer, or a power tool, the garage door opener, etc. etc. etc. When something that's powerful enough turns on or off, you get a surge, and these surges are what a surge protector are for.

 

All of these surges are harmful to sensitive electronics, especially with prolonged, daily bombardment.

Well there you go, that's the culprit. It can be some interference on your power line that the PSU can't filter out or the power line you have is very bad. Change cables, extension cords, wall socket, power line in the house, if nothing works, change house again. If it goes away and nothing helped, while in that house then your house has bad power.

Otherwise you need to run stock CPU, GPU, RAM, etc. to troubleshoot and describe what happens and when precisely, such as BSOD in Witcher 3, map/misson, location, ... or PC won't wake up from sleep, etc.
I would have an electrician come in and run a dedicated circuit just for the computer

That can be extremely expensive, and if the power that's coming to the house is bad, then it would mean that the problem would persist.

 

I think for now he should try different outlets in the 'bad' house and then go from there.

He could have a loose connection some were he should go around to every outlet turn off Powere and check that all wires are tightly screwed down

Sure, I can try that

Not installed Firmware for keyboard and mouse, could that be a reason
