Need Help Weired Computer Issue "Graphics/Monitors"

Ok, I just got a new speaker system that was at Tuesday Mornings. I paid $25 for it and it includes a subwoofer what ever that is.

Ever since I plugged it in I had problems:
My screen started shaking when it was plugged into the same outlet and now it is plugged into a different outlet the screen is not shaking however the screen has got really dull and has turned red in the bottom corner. I now have my computer in a different monitor and I see blue where it should not be in the top corner.

If I restart the computer every thing is fine unless I plug it back in.

Is the speakers just bad or do I have too many things plugged in?

I dont want my home to burn down if I have too many plugins.

I have 3 outlets and 2 places for a cord per outlet. I am using 1 extension cord and I am using a plugin to plugin 6 cords to 1 outlet "2 places for a cord".

I have the following plugged in into the three main outlets:
1 TV
1 Light
2 Computers
2 Monitors
1 Printer
1 Stereo
1 Speakers
1 Fan

if I were to use no extensions or mutliplugs in one I would be able to plugin 6 things if all six were used. I have 10 things plugged in possibly 11 if I forgot something.

My home is from the 70's so I am not sure if that makes a difference in the way electrical was done.

I just dont want the house to burn down.

Thanks for the help!

Not sure how to delete my thread however I figured out the issue. Never having a subwoofer or even knowing what it is it was too close to my monitor and computer. Are there magnets in a subwoofer? Anyways I moved it further away and have no issues now.
