Now for my problem. Often, when I try to cook something on the electric range, I get some kind of shortage that messes up my computer. I lose my internet connection and can't get reconnected -- the modem can sense a dial tone, and dial a number, but doesn't recognize the responses from the other computer and Windows XP gives me the error message, "The remote computer did not respond." When I try to shut down the OS, it freezes at the screen that says "Saving your settings..." I eventually have to turn it off by manual control. This happens when I run the oven for a long period of time, for hours, but it happens instantly when I turn on the range. However, the same problem does not occur when I use the microwave oven, ever, no matter what power setting I use or how long I use it. Just the electric range/oven seems to cause this problem.
I need to use my electric range and oven to cook things that require boiling or simmering. The microwave just isn't sufficient for all dishes. But, whenever I use the electric range, the computer starts to screw up. How do I solve my problems?
