Power to ground wire

I found the problem and thought I should share the answer! In the bedroom that had power there is a double outlet set up for a computer or other electronics. These 2 outlets were wired to the same power in. HOWEVER one of them was actually tied into the hall circuit. So when the power was on in the bedroom current was traveling though the ground wires. Once I separated this outlet from the bedroom power everything worked fine.
