My GPU has recently died, and I got to wounder why. I have been having PC shutdowns and bluescreens over the last 5 years. I noticed at some point, that these often happen when someone turned on a light outside my room. I would hear the sound of the switch, then my PC would make a small sound (maybe like a HDD stopping to spin) and the system would be frozen to then bluecreen.
Over time this must have destroyed my GPU, and possibly other components over the years.
Can modern PSUs handle small surges or power cuts (for mili or nanoseconds)? And if not, is there a way to protect my next system?
