Hi.Have an question. It is possible that when turning on oven make a 0,5-1second power spike,without tripping fuse or breaker? I ask because when my mother in kitchen turned on oven,diablo 1 crashed to desktop on my old laptop. Nothing get tripped etc,lights not. So it was coincedence that game crashed in this moment or not?



Laptop not restarted i just saw STEAM icon like always and desktop ,when i back.

Event viewer said that:"A timeout was reached (30000 milliseconds) while waiting for the Steam Client"
"the service did not respond to start or control request timeline fashion "



Also i was on balcony in this time.


ps:
Diablo 1 is from GOG not steam.

Hi - I'm going to stick my neck out and say it's not your Mothers fault. What would be good is for you to stop playing on your screen and help her with dinner :) .

On a laptop, unless you're running it without batteries it's highly unlikely a minor power issue will crash an application. Whether there was a network issue as a result of the power fluctuation that caused it to crash is another matter entirely, although I've never known Diablo 1, 2 or 3 to crash completely when a network issue has occurred.

If the laptop is plugged in, and has a battery pack, then if the mains drops out, the battery pack will supply power so a mains transient shouldn't cause a problem.

hope pete999's don't drop out.
 
Is this reproducible? The key to finding out whether it's a coincidence is to recreate it. If the same thing happens every time the oven is switched on then there's likely something odd going on.

In the (IMHO much more likely) case where it was a one off, and turning the oven on makes no difference in the future, then it's just a coincidence.
 
Yes it is possible !
If the electrical system that feeds both the stove and computor,
is struggling, this will likely cause a current limit effect, so more load equals less voltage for all to share. you need to get the electrical system fixed or upgraded. Using a UPS is a good short term patch.

Tell your mother to work harder and to buy you new laptop/PS/Xbox.......

Polish electrics can be errrrr entertaining especially in the sticks.

We tried 4 times turning oven when diablo 1 was running. Nothing happened. Also steam was running fine. But steam is only background. Diablo 1 is standalone not from Steam.

In moment when Diablo 1 crashed to desktop event viewer said:"Event viewer said that:"A timeout was reached (30000 milliseconds) while waiting for the Steam Client"

"the service did not respond to start or control request timeline fashion ""

Diablo 1 is from GOG not steam.Diablo 1 is playing from standalone files.offline

So it can be related to starting oven or it was coincedence?

Like i said it crashed to desktop,laptop was not turned off.

Just treat it as a coincidence and stop worrying.

If this is not repeatable every time
- it was just bad luck-! (some one else's oven went-Bang/No Hot dinner)
(the volts had already dipped at meal time --and dipped a little more when Oven got turned on ... )
(pre-heat oven a little next time ,at less important part of game)
