Car completely shorts out upon turning key

The car hasn't really given me any problems until this. Most of the time it starts just fine. About two weeks ago I got in and turned the key and instantly all dash and outside lights shut off and the car became unresponsive as if the battery died. We tried jumping it thinking that was the problem. Of course it didn't help, after playing with the fuses for a minute we found one that if taken out and put back the car came back to life. It would die about 3-4 times again before this let the car start again. Thinking it was a faulty fuse I replaced that one. The car ran for 2 weeks without problem until today when the same MO problem occurred.
