Computer suddenly loses power and turns on again for a split second ra

Hi all,


I currently have a problem that sometimes occurs while I'm using my computer. While the computer is on, there is a chance that the computer will suddenly turn off for a split second without warning and turning on again in less than a second. At the first restart (right after the computer powers off for a quick time) there is no display (although maybe this is because I connect my computer to a TV through HDMI.... Don't ask). I suspect this is because my AVR is connected to an extension cord which is also connected to another extension cord. This is because my other computer (which is connected to the original extension cord) never gets this problem. Should I plug the AVR in the original extension cord, or is there another cause?


Help would be appreciated :)
