How to tell if my new LCD monitor isn't blown

hello...i recently bought a new LCD monitor with LED backlight (Samsung PX2370). One afternoon, i heard a buzzing soundand saw my display screen flickered for about 5 seconds. I think it has something to do with excessive voltage or overcurrent. Since then, i bought a voltage stabilizer to provide clean power. And it has never happened again. My monitor is working fine so far without any problems.

I just want to ask if there was any possibility of damage to the LCD monitor when the overvoltage happened. And i would also like to ask whether the AC-DC adapter for LCD monitor has a built in irreplaceable fuse. If yes, could the fuse be damaged? Can the AC-DC adapter be possibly damaged as well? What about possibility of damage to my LCD monitor?

i'm worried that the excessive current might have passed through the adapter and damaged the monitor. Anyone can share their thoughts please? Thanks.

"My monitor is working fine so far without any problems"

If it outlasts the warranty you've got your money's worth.

What about the possible damages? Even if they apparently are not visible but it's still there? What I am interested in is whether the AC-DC adapter and the internal LCD are fine and could withstand one or two overvoltages?

The "money worth" is translated off my head into $250-$300 price range. I understand this monitor comes with a proximity sensor that automatically turn off the screen when you walk away from it or no one is near it.

I hope this sensor is reliable and configurable and that it is guaranteed to outlast the monitor itself. I also hope it's far superior to the sensors in the paper towel dispensers in the public restrooms that frequently breaks down and quit working.
