Just for a quick bg: I have a computer I pieced together that is running Windows 8. I used it in another place - no issues. Ever since moving it into this house where it is now, every time the computer is on and I turn on or off the ceiling fan (via the wall switch), the OS's chime that a device has been connected/attached to the computer is activated. Nothing else comes up. No notices/anything, just the sound-effect.
I'm more than a tad bit confused and the slightest bit alarmed. I spent a lot of money of this computer and don't want anything to harm it in any way in any way that is avoidable.
The only other thing I can think of is the computer is connected to a Phillips powerstrip/surge-protector. It was in the other place too, so I don't know how it could be connected to it, especially as seeing how the other two switches in the room do not trigger the same event.
Oh yeah, one other thing: I do have a Passport running (and though it may be in no way connected, seeing as how this is a common issue) it TENDS to SEEM that the "recycle bin on drive E:/ is corrupted" notice comes up after such stuff with the ceiling fan happens. I do try not to use the ceiling fan when the computer is on for now though. And it happened this morning even though I am pretty certain I did not trigger that anomaly last night. But seeing as how I live in Las Vegas and summer is coming, and I am in the hot room in the house... I would really like to be able to use the fan and not be concerned that I am hurting the computer if I do.
It is REALLY weird. Should I be concerned? Thank you for anyone responding... I know this is a weird issue.
