PC doesn't turn on when connected in my room, but it works in the kitchen when it has a whole socket for itself

So i built a new PC in December, i had it always in my Livingroom and it was working and so it did in the kitchen but only when it had a whole socket for itself only. It worked only from time to time in my room, the lights from GPU, MOBO and RAM came up and the fans were spinning, the mouse and keyboard weren't lighting up and the screen was just black. So i've decided to read about issues like this, and the only things i could read about is testing it with an another PSU or the power sockets just suck and don't give enough power for my PC somehow. I want to know what ya'll here think about this. Also i may also mention that i live in Switzerland. Any help is greatly appreciated!

 

My Specs:

Intel Core i5-9400

Gigabyte Geforce GTX 1660

ASRock Phantom Gaming 4 B365M

Corsair Vengeance 16GB

Corsair SF600 600 WATT

Your room’s breaker is most likely being overloaded, try unplugging bigger electrical items like an Xbox if you have one, maybe a TV and some things like that. And welcome to the forums, @05pietr20

Could be bad wiring in the house, or low voltage in your area. I would avoid plugging the pc into any extension cords or power bars. If you have an active ups I would run the pc on a battery protected outlet. If any of your receptacles are running hot or burnt you should look into getting that addressed

Then my setup... a power strip plugged into a power strip. At least there isn't much load on this socket, my monitor, 5w lamp and a 9w lamp, pc, a 12v 2a power adapter. I sometimes plug my phone in to charge, the charger is 5v 2a.

That's very weird ... AFAIK GPU fans are 5V but PCI-e doesn't supply 5VSB, that means that it should be regular 5V rail if not 12V, but why mouse and keyboard don't work then ? Are you sure it's indeed socket related and you're not just doing something wrong with the PC ? Like maybe some cables are loose ?

Tag or quote me so i see your reply
