    Uhhhh, that is VERY weird. Does your desktop have any wireless capability? That is the only thing I can think of, though it is a long shot.

    Get a new phone. You can also try one of the antennae that go under the battery, although that only seems to help some nokia phones.

    I`v seen LCD monitors that black out when near ringing phone but that was with older models.
    So it is strange to say at least.

    done it with 2 diff psu's
     
  9. Ok, don't laugh... But take a microwave and place it in your room, put it on max and let it go for a minute. The "radiation" from a microwave oven should be worse than that of a mobile phone.

    What's the brand and model of the phone btw?

    do you have any wireless devices attached to your pc? it's definitely some type of radio interference though, e.g. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MdWUT_o1QjM&NR=1 maybe it's just that phone? the model i mean, do you mean that 6 different TYPES of phones have done this to your computer?

    Are you in a private house, or a building?

    If you are in a building, you may very well have cell equipment ON the building, and are possibly getting hammered point-blank by an outdoor antenna.

    That or there may well be one say, mounted on a building across the street, aimed pretty much right at you.

    Does your PC have Bluetooth? If so try disabling it.
