New place - computers keep breaking
Posted on 2006-03-31
This might be a stupid question, but...here it is. I moved to this new apartment about a year and a half ago. A few month later my computer died. (the motherboard) I bought a brand new computer, and about a year later, it died, too. (motherboard) Then I built a computer with the parts I had from the previous one, plus a bunch of new parts (upgrade), and now this computer died, too. One day it just shut off. Oh, and I bought a brand new monitor, too, and that died, too, about a year old. Seems like a power problem, but the power supply is good. I was thinking, if it has something to do with this apartment. I mean I never had so many computer die in such a short time. All brand new. I noticed when I moved in, that the power connectors on the wall sometimes have power in, sometimes dont, but the one the computer was plugged in, seemed fine all the time. I did use a surge protector. Is it possible that maybe this apartment has some inefficient power circulation or something like that, and that damages the computer hardware???
