Power surge killed it all????

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I think it could be a coincidence I bought a new case 900d I love it spent like 12 hours getting it all setup while I was at home at my parents house. I went to turn it on for the first time and it didn't do anything the lights on my motherboard don't come on or anything. I had the monitor I brought home with me plugged into the same outlet and it's power light comes on but the panel doesn't come on and when I try and hit the power button it doesn't turn back off and I can't pull up any menus up so it appears the screen is not working either.

My Evga psu doesn't normally make a click when it's plugged in but it does here now. I moved to a different room and the same thing happens with the pc and monitor. Has this outlet fried both my psu and monitor or have I just ran into the worst luck ever and both have gone bad since I used them both on Friday

Did you have all the necessary connectors plugged into the motherboard (24 pin and 4 pin or 8 pin) and video card (6 pin)?

Did you do the paperclip test with the PSU (connect green Power_On signal to either black ground wire next to it to see if the fan spins?)

Is the case power button working, and is it connected right?

What about the same for the reset button?

Are all the cards and memory modules plugged firmly into their sockets?

Any shorts between the motherboard and case?

Haven't tried taking It all back out to test if the case is shorting out but I don't think that would have killed my monitor as well

yes but that was my old system and I was at my apartment at the time of that. Seeing how my monitor also doesn't work I'm leading to believe that the outlet has killed them both

When you say the monitor died, do you mean it doesn't even show a "No signal" error message? Is it made to display something like that?

When i say died i mean it shows nothing, The green power light comes on when you hit the power button, it just shows a black screen, no menus with the side buttons will come up, not even the backlight comes on. When you try and turn it off, with the power button nothing happens, the green on light sticks on you have to pull the plug to get it to go out.

I tried using my laptop, and it seems my G15 keyboard and G500 mouse is even dead, not working at all on my laptop when they have worked fine just 2 days before with my pc and monitor.

It appears ive got a total loss of my desktop monitor, and everything that was hooked up to it at the time (G15 keyboard, G500 mouse, G35 headset)

Anybody ever had to claim something like this on their home insurance? We have $75k worth of renters insurance but im not sure on the terms of it, calling them monday or tuesday.

I just need to have a PC shop confirm its dead for my insurance company as well as an electrician check the house.

I would test all of the components individually first. If you haven't done that, then who is to say the ENTIRE system is dead? If you have a spare power supply kicking around, I would test that first. I've had a very similar experience and it turns out that only the PSU was killed, but luckily saved the rest of the system.
