    Default monitor AORUS AD27QD - short circuit and tripped breaker.

    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.

    Is this possible that monitor can trip breaker?

    I am worried about pc.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. "


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

    VERY unlikely. More likely someone talking out of their rear end.

    If there was a surge big enough to pop either MOV or fuse in your PC's PSU, the PC simply would not work right now. The power brick for the monitor likely did not have the same protection as the PC's PSU.

    Quality surge protectors are always a good investment.
