Probably PSU or even power cable.

Though I've never heard of this myself.

I supposed you dont have PC plugged in surge protection?

I plugged my PC in surge protection. For the last 3 years, my 5 kettles died and my PC worked well protected.

WTF? You call an electrical outlet a Kettle lead?

Just buy a good UPS connected straight to the wall outlet.
