    Have been struggling with this annoyance for a few weeks now.

    We have a computer that when plugged in to a certain mains outlet in a classroom, intermittently powers on. It can not be powered on by LAN when connected either. As soon as you take it out of the room it works fine. We have changed the Kettle Lead, Power Supply, Reseated All Components. Our Eletrician assures us that the plug sockets are working fine.

    It reminds me of our good old Mario Ballotelli; does what it wants, when it wants!

    Any ideas?

    what happens when another computer is plugged into the same socket, has the electrician actually tested the socket, in my last job we had facilities people that would just say stuff was working fine without actually looking at it. If the pc works fine out of the room I would still be cautious playing around with the socket as it does seem to indicate an issue with the socket.

    Would be interested to know the answer to the above!

    During the summer holidays we done a rebuild on the systems, and whatever machine placed there will not work. Oddly enough, it will power the monitor and other devices such as printers up fine.

    A Job for the sparky then methinks, if he cannot find a problem then a contractor should be called as the definately seems to be a problem with the socket. As it does it on more than one pc you have proved beyond resonable doubt that it is not a systems issue.
