    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.

    I sended to rma. Here is shop RMA message:

    Shop:"We repaired PSU and sending back good monitor to client"

    Is this possible that psu of monitor can trip breaker then if psu inside monitor, failed?

    Yes, this is possible.


    An aside:

    When switched mode power supplies first came on the market they were tripping breakers because of the initial surge, but modern breakers don't trip so easily for surges. How old is your house?

    I think 2005 year. Its new. Also listen.

    But. 1 month ago something tripped 2 small breakers again. All electricity went down again. Then.......i go to bathroom and saw that one of 3 halogen bulbs no lightning. So one bulb get burned. Not again ( my luck ) psu of monitor.

    But this time ( second time ) what tripped breaker? Bulb or pc? First time was monitor.



    Like i said pc working normally after that second outage.



    My question is.That second time propably bulb tripped 2 small breakers or maybe my pc? Like i said,pc working again fine,no issues completely.
