Specs: Windows 10
Hello. I had a good monitor AORUS AD27QD. Yesterday when i was sleep i left monitor on like always. When i woke in morning there was not power in house. Something tripped breaker/fuse.
When i turn up breaker and power back in,monitor just refused to turn on. So monitor i guess tripped breaker somehow and make short circuit.

PC starting normally. Only monitor get damaged.
During night only pc was running and monitor. Other devices was off.

Maybe sell pc if i can experience faults in pc in future?

Somebody said:"Use a quality surge protector on important things and even though the PC works now it may have suffered as well and in a couple months if you experience faults you know why."

Is the monitor still under warranty? if so get it replaced.
Else you have no better choice than to buy a new one, only other damaged part could be the power supply, unless you kept the PC turned on aswell during the surge.

The power supply can be tested from within the bios (hit delete a few times during startup) or from windows with hwinfo64 or similar software.
12volt, 5volt & 3.33volt should not be off by more than 3%.

My guess is you're replacing hardware that doesn't need to be replaced. Are you 100% sure the monitor tripped the breaker? Have you installed any of the new hardware yet?

What does the old monitor do when it's turned on? Does the power LED light up? If you turn it on when it's NOT connected to the PC, it should say "no signal" on the screen or something similar. If that happens, there's probably nothing wrong with the monitor.

This isn't the 1st time you've posted about power outages affecting computer hardware. What country are you in? Having a decent surge protector is important to protect your hardware investment. Personally, I would NEVER spend that kind of money on a monitor. $650 for a 27" screen? Yikes.

It is likely that a power surge through the incoming line fried your monitor.
If you had a decent power supply it might have been slightly hardened to power surges so it protected iself and the computer.
You should have at LEAST a surge protector for all of your important electronics.
If you are in an area that gets these power surges then you really should have a UPS (battery back up) which protects you from surges, power drops, brown outs and short term black outs and power returning from a black out (often a surge or inconsistent for a while). The better UPS's include a link and software so it will safely shut down the computer in the event of a prolonged power outage so if it is running when you are asleep or out you, your hardware, and your data are protected. I always use a good UPS on my computers since issues way back in 1995 when I had a power related problem.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Or switch PC off when you do not need it.

Wish you find new monitor and your PC to avoid damage.
