Computer picking up interference from other electronics? Answered
I have a weird problem: when I turn off my floor fan, my computer wakes up from standby.
I have tried a different fan, similar problem happens, except when I turn on the fan.
I have previously ignored this problem, but my computer started acting weird and eventually failed completely.
I found a bunch of capacitors in my PSU are blown. I recapped and it's working again.
What is causing the problem, and are there some fix? (not using a fan is not an option)
My setup: outlet <- cheater plug <- power strip <- everything else
power strip <- fan
The second power strip is used due to length constraints. Here at college dormitory each student only get one ungrounded socket, hence the cheater plug.
