My computer and room heater are connected to two different power boards. But both power boards are connected to the same wall power socket.

Every time I turn on my room heater, my computer flicks and restarts, as if someone press the reset button...

Why is this? and how do I resolve this problem?

Thank you

when you power on your heater the socket voltage is unstable and it flutuates(for a second). and probably your psu is designed to power off when its unstable to prevent it from catching fire
you can plug your heater to other socket
ps: i am not sure 100% that is correct what i said, maybe its another problem

I agree with @justTEUT4690

So the problem is most likely how you're connecting your heater. You need to find another circuit to put the heater on. That means an entirely different socket and ideally one that's connected to a different circuit breaker back at the power panel.

You also should not ever put an electric heater on an extension cord, only plug it directly into an outlet and one with no other devices on it.

When you turn on your heater or warmer and pc turn off it is because of voltage. Once you turn on both it computer off due to low voltage. You can do one thing to fix this buy ups it handles the ups and downs of voltage.
