Most houses are not Grounded if they are older.. One way to do that is to Hammer an 8 foot grounding rod into the ground and then run a number 10 copper wire from it to the Plug that you have your computer plugged to. Then makes sure that the outlet is properly hooked up to the ground wire.

This is what I use. It says it has surge protection, so I should be okay. I got this free with a psu I ordered awhile back.

See the problem is that you have to have the OUTLET grounded to be Grounded.

The best way to tell is to turn off the breaker that goes to the outlet of the computer. Then take a Single bladed medium screw driver and unscrew the outlet from the wall.

You will see a Black (HOT) a White (NEUTRAL) and a NUDE OR BARE Wire that is the Ground. If it has that Bare or nude wire then you are grounded. And plug anything you want to it. But if there is not the Add the ground to your System at least.

1. Turn off Braker to the outlet.

2.

3.

4.

5.

6. Check for Ground wire.

Reverse Process.

Well, everything should be grounded though. The house is pretty new(2005).

Then you are grounded and your interference is coming from a motor or Electromagnets.

But still check the ground wire.. You never know. YOU should be able to TURN OFF THE BREAKER and then take with an ohm meter between the ground and the neutral. Should be like it is connected together..
