I have a house that has a ac mounted in the wall. Every time I try to run my computer with the ac on I trip the breaker. I can't move either one. So can I put one on its own breaker and how do I do this?

"I am replacing a 3 way switch, circa 1986. The old switch had 7 poles, 4 down one side and 3 down the other. The one that was sold to me at home depot has 6 poles on it and I thought I wired it jsut like the old one was wired wuth the exception that I had one extra wire that I capped off. I have 2 red wires, 2 white, one black, one grey and the ground. Which wire goes to which pole?"
