    Could you list your full spec, with an indication of how old each component is...
    Also, I trus tyou have antivirus and antimalware such as malwarebyes and Bitdefender fully updated and have run full scans...
    Do you have a good plugboard / power strip with surge protection?
    Does your case have sufficient cooling, nothings getting too hot?

    I see no reason to think that your Ethernet cable could possibly damage your PC... it's just a cable... and motherboards are generally pretty robust...

    From your spec my only concern would be your PSU... it isn't a very good one... all these weird problems and part failures you are having is consistent with a bad PSU behaving very badly... before you do anything else I would buy a new PSU. For example the XFX Pro series, whcih seem to be available for very good money at the moment.

    Have a look at this list:

    ... and consider something from tier A or B.
  6. Yeah i know i replaced the blueberry psu with this cooler master psu its a brand new before this my setup was intel g 2030 intel hd 2500 4 gb ram transcend blue berry psu msi h61m p20 i dont know how many wats excatly but maybe i was to rough on it i had over 76 games on that pc maybe i damaged the igpu and the bad ram was cousing the problems and so ... i dont know but thank you man i dont think it has to do with surges and so because i had intel core 2 duo machine 775 socket and no problems for four years and i gave it to my friend :D so enthernet cable wil not damage anything if it damage no problems 2 years warranty :D but Thanks Adept for the opinion :D + one from me :D
