Plug Socket crackling noise.

Firstly, not an electrician so wouldn’t know a great deal but looking for some advice or anything that may help really.

Got a plug socket which has two sockets in and whenever I plug my PC monitor or tower into the plug, the switches at the wall won’t turn off, so I flick them off and it like springs back on but doesn’t do with with other plugs which is weird.

The plug socket has now started making a crackling noise when I plug my tower/monitor in and when turning the sockets on but again, doesn’t do it with a hoover plugged in. Not sure if maybe my PC is needing too much power or something.

Any advice would be appreciated.
