    Wow that is crazy! How old is your house?

    In the summer we typically run 3 desktop computers and a window air conditioner, with a ceiling light, ceiling fan, and sometimes a TV or two, maybe even with multiple XBOXs. The breaker only popped a couple times a few years ago when I would be on the computer with the AC on AND my gf started blow drying her hair in the bedroom. I just had to go down to the basement and pull a lever back and it would reset the breaker and start working again. I've since banned her from using the hair dryer in the bedroom :P


    Well, It's old enough to still use these damn fuses.

    Oh my god i will rip off your arm and beet you to death with it.


    LOL. I have sent it for reparation. Oh, and no need to beat me to death with my own arm; your spelling and punctuation have sorted that out, already.

    BTW, I like beets.

    umm why would they cost so much


    Don't ask me. However, you are going completely off-topic. The question was "Why does the computer blow the fuse?"

    Try connecting it to a plug, or a different extender, dont put more stuff into the extender than itsdesigned to (e.g. The extender supports 4 things plugged in but since you have used a another extender into it its now on 6 and has chance of shorting the device(s) and blowing the fuse).


    I only have the computer plugged into it. The extender is connected to the wall plug.

    If that doesn't work, the Power Supply is probably gone.

    Also I didn't realize there were people/houses that still uses fuses rather than circuit breakers.


    I can't risk breaking another fuse. Oh, and I do agree that fuses are a little old. Brakers do cost (equivalent to) a couple thousand dollars where I live, so it would be cheaper just to stick with the fuses, where they are at around $3.13 each.

    Is it directly connected up to the plug or a extender?


    I think it's connected to an extender. It worked fine before, though. It just suddenly happened.

    It all happened yesterday. I was trying out TERA, which I bought the day before, and all of a sudden, the power went out... in my room and the bathroom only... I had been playing on that computer for a few months, and it worked fine! But now, it just blows the fuses. I tried connecting it to a different fuse. Boom! There goes that, too. Could it be the power supply that's faulty?

    Any answers would be appreciated.

    P.S.: I don't know if this is the right category, but I couldn't find anywhere else to put it.

    P.P.S.: I searched Google, but none of them fit this exact issue. They all blew when the PC was POWERED ON, not when it was OFF.

    They grief because of various reasons; raging, envy, jealousy, or perhaps even just to be pricks. Either way, it just makes them look stupid.

    I lost the game's manual, and I don't know how to get the activation key back. Does anybody here know how I can get it back?

    P.S.: I don't have it installed on this computer, which is why I need the manual to begin with.

    Twilight Princess because it's the only one I have played, and Wind Waker because I loved NintendoCapriSun's LP of it.

    posted a message on So... is Battlefield 3 on the PC worth the trouble?
    Personally, I don't think so. I got my copy along with my computer. The campaign basically sucks, and I'm not much of an online shooter fan, either. The only game I play that is semi-FPS shooterish right now is World of Tanks, which I actually semi-quit not too long ago.

    Lots of "semis," no?

    posted a message on YouTube Let's Play question
    I'm almost 16 years old now, and I have a question for you all. If I [let's] play a game that's rated 18+ while under 18 years old, will anything happen? Will I get blocked from watching my own videos, should they be rated 18+, or will they be removed?

    posted a message on Skyrim Creation Kit freezes

    Whenever I start the SCK, it keeps freezing at the "initializing windows" that is shown at the bottom of the screen. Does anyone know what this means?


    Okay, scrap that. I managed to get past that part, but now it just gives me a "Creation Kit has stopped working" error?

    That Clown-fish have a heirachy (did I misspell that?) of a family where the lead female is the largest fish, and all other fish are exactly 20% smaller than the one above them in the heirachy (Seriously am I derpin' with the spellin'?) and if the lead female dies, all the fish grow by 20%, with the new largest fish taking lead. If this new fish is a male, then they undergo a transformation into a female fish.

    So basically, Clown-fish are a bunch of girls.



    It is actually spelt "Hierarchy."

    Anyway, chewing gum helps you "not cry" when cutting onion because it makes you breathe more air through the mouth than normally. Less air goes through the nose, making the irritation less, well, irritating.
