Both the monitor and the amp are connected to the same electrical socket board thing, and so is the computer, a lamp, stereo and another lamp.

My amp is a fender ultimate chorus which is a solid state amp, it's several years old and when I turn it off, most of times, it makes a loud popping sound. Right when I do that, the computer screen, which is some aoc LCD monitor, goes off for about 2 seconds, then back on.
Not sure why the amp affects the screen but none of the other things connected to the board.

Anyone wanna give a shot to explain why this happens?

could you give us a better description other than "thing."

do you mean power strip? with or without surge protection?

the only thing is know is that the light in the office where our computer is the lights dim when the laser printer fires up.

I think you might have to much coming from the outlet. Unplug your stereo and the lamps. See if that helps. If it doesnt, then switch sockets? That would be my best guess

Yea thats a power strip. You have to much being used on it. I would plug your lamps and computer into the power strip. Then plug your amp into the free socket. As a precaution, Id turn off the strip before playing guitar. Time consuming? Yes. But worth it

do you have more than one circuit in that room? or just a single circuit (like most houses are these days)?

why does it only affect the computer screen and only when i turn off the amp, and only for about 2 seconds...

EDIT: i mean, i really couldnt care less, it's not something i want to 'fix', im just curious as of why this happens, it doesn't bother me to have the screen going black for 2 seconds really.

The monitor is most sensitive to the amount of power it gets. When you turn off your amp, it spikes the power which creates a little brownout on your power strip. The screen uses a bunch of power and doesn't like losing it quickly, so it blacks out for a second until the current ramps back up. The other things connected to the strip are more flexible in how much power they receive so they work fine.

The monitor is sucking up the most amount of power, and when you cut off the amp, the surge protector/ power strip shits it's pants for a second to realize what happened, and then fixes the problem, i.e. sends power back to your monitor.
