Question about Sampo Computers & Internet
AC adapters are prone to voltage spikes and lightening.
It sounds like the AC adapter has taken a hit.
Replace it as soon as possible. This may be a fire hazard.
If the lights in the house dim and brighten a transformer near you may need to be checked. Call the utility company and report the problem.
Other than that, if the AC adapter is getting hot and no apparent damage outside. It has probably sustained internal damage. Continued use could cause fire and/or damage to the monitor.
