Just because you are plugged into a three prong outlet doesn't mean it's grounded. Sometimes when electrical outlets are wired, the ground connection isn't actually grounded and is useless. Sometimes power strips have a little light on it to show if it is actually grounded or not. Also, cheap power conditioners can help alot. (Rack Rider for instance)
