I am really confused and hope someone here can help point me in the right direction. About a month ago I caused a short in my pc ( I tried to plug in my mouse to a usb port while it was on - static electricity is a ***** ) but here is the thing. I recently got a new computer and monitor but while the computer will start up and seems like its running right - the monitor won't turn on. Mind you its a new monitor - I even tested it at work and it runs fine but any of the outlets at home don't work. Does anyone have any idea what could be causing the monitor not to work? I thought maybe the short damaged the receptacle but I replaced it and nothing changed. Help!
