|Hi So-Unfair, anything can be repaired if you are prepared to pay for it.|
With queries such as this, always advise the make and model number of the device concerned.
As this is the 4th pc to fail, you advise *ALL* with suspect psu problems, you need look to find and cure the fault, otherwise there will be 5th and 6th failures, etc.
You mention the monitor:-
a) has it been changed?
b) is it powered from the base unit, or a wallsocket?
As a matter of interest, where (city/state) are you located? I am in Hammersmith, West London.
You suspect the house wiring, is having correct polarity and a good earth required in your location?
I would start by installing some form of inexpensive surge protection, feeding everything related to the computer.e.g.base unit, monitor, router, printer. Something like:-
Although I prefer to have a switch on each socket, which on this example is missing.
You live in an apartment - is there a lift?
These are known to cause power supply fluctuations.
Please advise back on progress.
Good Luck - Keep us posted.
