My computer occasionally turns off and then turns on a second later.

At first this only happened to my computer (about a month ago), but just this morning both the tv and computer in my room turned off and then turned on a split second later. This happened 3 times in the span of one hour.

Probably an electrical problem but what could it be considering it only happens every few weeks?

Maybe but that would mean my tv has it too. :P

It's only happened recently for the TV because it took some time for the devices' cycles to line up.

I'd suggest moving your electronics so that they're not all connected to the same outlet (if you have like a bunch of stuff on a power strip). You should probably also have your breakers checked so that they're the appropriate size for the load they have on them.

If you have a breaker that's too big then every time the power is overloaded you risk melting the wires and starting a fire...if the breaker is too small you'll have to go flip the breakers repeatedly.

Otherwise, it could just be the electric company having fits and there's nothing you can do about that (short of moving or finding a new electricity provider).

My tv is plugged into a different outlet and so is my computer. The thing that's strange is that this happens irregularly, leading me to believe that it probably is something to do with my provider. Oh well. If the problem becomes more frequent I guess I'll call them.

Any chance of my computer being damaged from being turned on and off automatically?
