comment Gaming blew fuse and causes funny smell: how to overcome?
A chance, not a big one, actually a pretty small one - still not wise to mess with electricity. Actually since we now know that you are in the UK, we also know that there should be another fuse in the lead to the PSU as this is required in the UK as is having an earthed lead.

I would say that your PSU is marginal, most PSU's, especially cheap ones do not actually cope well with maximum power draw. If you still have a working library close by, you may be able to borrow a power monitor from them as they were made available to all Libraries - at least in England.

comment What is the purpose of a 2.1 amp charger if USB 2.0 can only draw 500mA
Also worth noting that Windows 8.1 enforces that limit. Older versions of Windows did not. This means that some non-compliant (but useful) hardware no longer works on W8.1

comment Nothing is saved in Word 2013 when shutting of PC (macros, cross-references)
Do you mean that your VBA macro's are disappearing? What happens if you make a change to the ribbon - is that saved?

Assuming the circuit breaker works correctly. I'm just trying to point out that you take liberties with electricity at a high risk.
