Hi.Have an question. It is possible that when turning on oven make a 0,5-1second power outage,without tripping fuse or breaker? I ask because when my mother in kitchen turned on oven,diablo 1 crashed to desktop. Nothing get tripped etc,lights not. So it was coincedence that game crashed in this moment or not?

Laptop not restarted i just saw STEAM icon like always and desktop ,when i back.

Also i was on balcony in this time.

Power outages don't trip fuses or breakers. Short-circuits or power surges trip fuses or breakers.

Software bugs, like a game crashing to desktop, are impossible to cause by the power supply.

Does this occur consistently? I.e. have you been able to reproduce this?

It's an old game, and games crash, software crashes, Windows crashes. One crash is nothing to fuss over. Do you worry you have a serious health problem every time you sneeze? Or is most of the time a sneeze just a sneeze?
