So I'm a bit worried because my previous MoBo (a Gigabyte) died and I just bought a new MoBo. This new MoBo is an Asus. Last monday (now we are friday) I've let my computer opened to be able to use it with TeamViewer. However, I didn't access the computer with TeamViewer and I didn't access it directly.
So when I came back friday, the screen was on a Power Supply Surge screen saying Asus is trying to protect my computer from PSU damage.
Also, a Storm occurred during the week and my house lost the electricity.
So I have the theory where its my PSU that killed my previous MoBo and I have the theory that the storm that occurred this week while my computer was here doing nothing caused the PSU purge. However, it is important to mention that my previous MoBo isn't really dead, it was just really unstable having random crashes and random behavior (like letting my fans runs for no reason when the temp was low). My GPU has always been fine and never seemed to be damaged by my PSU.
Now I'm writing this question just after the incident on this same computer, not sure If I should let it open.
So, was my PSU surge caused by lightning ? It is connected to a white bar and the white bar was powered on when I came back home. I have to mention that I'm a regular user and I do not own extra material to test with. Should I wait for another warning or one is enough ?
