About 6 months ago i built a desktop. It has been running well enough and has never given me and serious problems until today... Now this is a bit confusing so try to read carefully. I had my tower plugged into a surge protector which was plugged into an outlet. I also had a small heater plugged into the surge protector as well as a few other devices. Sometime in the night the circuit for the outlet blew, probably because i had the heater going all night. It's never happened before but there is a first time for everything. Anyways... So I switched the circuit breaker back on and my surge protector came back on. The other devices plugged into it started up just fine, but my Desktop did not. It's not getting any power to it at all. I tried another outlet, even though i knew it wouldn't help, and I was right.... it didn't help at all. I tried turning the computer power switch on and off and hit the power button on and off but no good. The little light on my motherboard won't even turn on so I know that it is simply not getting any power at all. Now I am assuming that my Power supply must have been fried. But what doesn't make sense to me is that I though surge protectors were supposed to prevent this from happening, and why wouldn't the other devices plugged into the surge protector not fail as well? Or the surge protector itself, why didn't it fry? But i Digress.... So I'm pretty sure it was my power supply that died, but I am not very good with hardware know-how so here is my question. Did my power supply save the rest of my computer? or if it was fried should i just assume that the surge fried everything else in my computer too, Like my MB and such? Or are power supplies designed to take the heat and save the other hardware, so i just need to replace it and my comp will be fine? Please help! thanks in advance!
