    What wattage is your PC's power supply (PSU)?

    Open up the case and have a look. Should be written on there somewhere.

    Could be your PSU can't keep up with it and is dieing.

    I'd reccomend you get a decent PSU, prefferably over 500W and check your cooling is all alright.

    Also, if your plug goes into a multi adapter at any point, check that's working too.

    If you have any advnced type of cooling you'd most likely know about it.

    Check all your fans aren't clogged and clean.

    I still recon it's a dodgy PSU if it's frying the plug/fuse..

    Have you checked the actually internals of the wall socket?
