      A faulty PSU can cause many weird issues, it's not just one single output from the PSU to the computer. There are different voltages and types of connector in use and most PSUs have at least 6 sets of leads coming out of them, if one is faulty you can still get perfectly good service from the other connectors. The seller is a prat IMHO

      I may have a surge protector... I will try and dig it up. But will the fact that the PSU has this problem mean the computer will... wither away? I haven't even switched it on with the internet unplugged because I feel like the computer will deteriorate from the fault if I do that. Or will stopping the current wrecking my net just be the end of the problem? lol

      The seller IS probably a prat, but I haven't actually had them say I can't send it back, so there's the chance I could return it, I just desperately don't want to because I couldn't afford to return the thing, nor would I know how to pack it and whatever - it's all a big hassle.

      Looking for that surge flapdoodle now

      EDIT:

      No, nevermind. I found it already and tried it... No difference... And looks like I won't hear from the seller till Monday if he operates on business hours...

      I don't suppose there's a chance it could just be a cable that came loose inside the computer? Lol

      Try plugging the router into the surge protector, if the PSU is causing an imbalance on the power line this may help.

      No difference there either... I don't know how good the protector is though, it was cheap and I've not used it in forever. I just know I'm gonna end up paying someone to fix this lol

      EDIT:

      Actually, disregard that. I wasn't using the surge protector correctly (shows how good I am with electronics!)... I think there is still some disturbance but right now the surge protector appears to be working...

      I still want to know though... Should I be concerned about the reason why the computer is causing this disturbance without surge protection? Will the faulty part in question just fail if I continue to use the computer, even though I'm protecting the router? Or should I just keep the surge protector and keep using the computer anyway?

      I want to thank everyone for their help though, if I don't end up with any more questions or problems. I'm very grateful C:
