Could an unstable mains supply cause problems in games?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi all. I have a question related to an other post i made about microstuttering and random CPU spikes in games.

I tried just about anything and everything to try and resolve.

I am now wondering if perhaps an unstable mains could be the problem. I say this because the exact same problems occur on 2 very different PC's i have, which would rule out any software/hardware possibilities.

Tested in multiple rooms and the problem persists.

There was once a lightning bolt that struck right outside my house and managed to turn my old pc on, frying the mobo at the same time and causing damage to other electronics to my neighbors down the road. That was about 4 years ago mind you.

Tommorow i will try testing at a friends house to see if that helps.

Could there be a possibility?

Thanks.

Old PC:
Dual Core 3.0ghz
4 Gig ram
HD 5770
Win XP

If you're concerned, contact an electrician. However, the mains supply is unlikely to be the culprit.
