Question about SVA-USA VR-15BU 15 in. Flat Panel LCD Monitor
From what you have written I assume you do not have a UPS system protecting the PC.
Unfortunately this mean that hardware has been damaged as electricity spikes have caused electrical stress to the components.
It would be helpfull to me if you where giving me a little bit more information but I will try to help. There are a few possibilities though that can narrow down the problem.
1. When you power up the system nothing happens - No noise no fans nothing. - Solution: The complete PSU or the fuse within is fried. (Change PSU and fire up again)
This is the most likely cause but these are also very possible.
2. When you power up the system the system fans, lights, hard disks make noise but you see nothing in the monitor except the sign. (The monitor's voltage regulation pcb is fried due to the storm) Try with a spare monitor if possible and if possible try the monitor to another PC
3. When you power up the system the system fans, lights, hard disks make noise but you see nothing in the monitor except the sign. If the monitor works fine, the PSU and the components seem to run fine most likely the components within the PC have been damaged. Not to the extend that a total failure is present but enough to create a mess. Some of the components will still probably be in good condition though. The only way to test them is by interchange one component with another.
In any case if the PC is still under warranty please go to a repair service centre and simply say that it stopped working. Do not mention storms, its your liability normally to protect the PC.
