When I plug the phone cable into the back of my PC all the phone lines in the house go dead what is causing this and how will I solve this problem

how many phones do you have attached to your phoneline and do you only have one line? if you attach more than 4 devices (1 device being a phone, or answering machine, or modem) to most lines then it won't have enough power to supply a signal to all and instead won't supply a signal to any. this may be your problem and you will have to either remove some of the other phones when you want to connect or get another phoneline installed.
