Having problems with your Dell Dimension 2400 PC Desktop ?

I have a dell 2400. It periodically shuts down to the flashing light state when my cell phone rings. It's rare and NOT everytime my cell phone rings. But I've noticed that every shutdown has coincided with the first ring of my cell phone. This is one for the books.. No heat or PSU problems. Any thoughts?


Answers :

Hey

A friend of mine reported this. It is possible the frequency does interfere with your computer. If the phone is close to your computer, move it way.
