Heya,
Yes, it is very possible when a power outage happens, the power supply can get a surge through it and cause the mainboard to stop working. I see this all the time in my line of work (supporting retail hardware).
If replacing the power supply hasn't resolved the issue, then the next thing you should try is to take the system to a bare-bones state to see if it boots, if it does, slowly add the hardware back.
By bare-bones state, I mean remove all but 1 stick of RAM (and if it doesn't boot, try a different stick, but only have the 1 in there), remove all USB devices, even keyboard and mouse. Basically you want to have the mainboard hooked up to the power supply, the processor, 1 stick of RAM and a monitor. If it boots when you do that, there's a problem with something other than the mainboard.
Add the hardware back one piece at a time (annoying, I know) booting the unit after each piece is attached, when you add a piece of hardware and it won't boot, set it aside, get everything else working, then add it back again, if it doesn't work, then that piece is your problem.
Good luck! hope this helps

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle to shutdown or fail to detect a hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your "((MOTHERBOARD TO THE HARD DRIVE))" make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
hope this helps

In safe mode- go to event viewer, and look for the fault- it sometimes is a windows update not installing properly, or, it could be a graphics driver problem. The yellow symbol similar to a statement, could give a clue, or, other shown faulting code.
Right click computer, left click manage, and then left lick on event viewer, and let us know what it says.

My monitor turns off every 2 minutes, even when you re power the monitor it will just shut down randomly. anybody knows whats wrong with it? and how much it will cost for repairs?


does it always shut down every 2 minutes? or is it "random" like you said? i ask because it can be configured to turn off as desired (that is if it is not used).

Flashing green power light - Black screen


I had the same problem with an AOPEN 17' lcd that was left behind at a rental property... I plugged it into my dell dimmension 4400 in place of my old analog. It worked fine the fist night, and got up and when turned it on again it had the famed green blinking power light. I switched back to the analog, and just disappointed I plugged in the AOPEN to another power source, and power came on a steady red light. I plugged it back into the puta and it came on again. I have not turned the monitor off again for fear of the blinks, and has been working great for close to a week now. Hope it helps someone else out there. Richard
