I'd guess one of two things. (1) The plug connections have loosened because of the plugging and unplugging. (2) The wires to the outlet have loosened and jiggling the outlet when you unplug cause them to short. If the latter I'd be inclined to check all of the outlets for loosening.

Hi, That's easy to prove. Just unplug at the PC end then and see what happens. Tony
