Need Help Weired Computer Issue "Graphics/Monitors"

by spectrakid / March 25, 2009 11:47 AM PDT

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.

Thanks

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
