    Default Thunderbolt killed my PC

    Yesterday, at 11am, I was running my PC and browsing the internet. It was raining outside. Then suddenly there was a thunderbolt. And within the blink of an eye, something exploded inside my monitor. My pc shut down but it restarted again but no display since my monitor was already dead. I opened up the case and tested again. The gpu fans were moving and mobo led lights were on. But I am still not sure about them. Later I removed my psu and noticed an abnormal behaviour. As soon as it gets AC connection, the psu turns on with its fans rotating without any load as if the psu is short circuited or something. Can it be fixed and where? By the way, I was using a good multi-plug with some sort of surge protection, a 1200VA apollo ups and a gigabyte odin 800W with possibly ocp, ovp protection, etc. Then how did this even happen? They were supposed to protect my pc right? Anyway, please help me guys. I want to fix my PC. Thanks in advance

    Very sad to know but how did it happened with all these protection , such a sorrow..
    People should stop blaming games for allegedly *copying* each other: "oh this game is Skyrim copy", "this game is WoW knock off", "this game is just another DMC" - enough!

    On this rate every 3rd person action will be God of War, every 3rd p shooter Gears, every 1st will be CoD.. it's ridiculous. They are called genres people! And if you look carefully you'll see allot more than mimicry out there.

    Feeling really sad.

    only "good" surge protected multiplugs available in BD are belkin and huntkey.
    apollo has no avr/ocp/ovp or surge protection.
    your wall socket has faulty or not properly grounded connection.

    Oh yeah, the exact same thing happened to my PC 4 years ago when I was using an Apollo UPS. Sad thing is it happened 4 months after I purchased the UPS and because it got fried during the lightning my warranty was void.

    Even after I agreed to pay money, they refused to fix the UPS.

    So, I had to fix my monitor, buy a new UPS and wasn't even able to sell that worthless piece of Apollo UPS. At this point I think it is OK to call them mother中中中叉rs for making and selling a shitty product.

    I am using Apollo 800VA atm. Bought it back in 2010. Had to change the battery once in 2013. Other than that, it's still going strong.

    If the surge protectors were useless we would not by them at a hefty price despite having UPS and all. Hope you will learn the lesson this time.

    I used to check the weather forecast of the previous day just to be sure of what I knew that the guys who put up these forecasts are wrong 9/10 times. I mean when it says it iss going to rain and then it doesn't rain a single drop, I did read about how the weather forecasts work which is there are too many variables that can change and make the forecast false.

    The building I was in didn't have proper earthing which is probably why it happened. But I didn't know that it would take out my Monitor with it. I wasn't using the PC during that time, I noticed it when I woke up in the morning.

    and has no protective circuits or anything, this is even shittier than my inverter project at my university.

    and about that power supply depends on what's wrong with it it can be fixed or not.

    So, I had to fix my monitor, buy a new UPS and wasn't even able to sell that worthless piece of Apollo UPS. At this point I think it is OK to call them mother中中中叉rs for making and selling a shitty product.
    fixing an apollo ups? please don't throw it away and get something better.

    I must say that you are badly in need of a surge protector right now, kalker thunderstorm e ei obostha hoile, odur-vobisshot e je agun dhorbe na er kono guarantee nai.

    and 1 more thing the number of times i have shut down my system properly is around 10 times less than the number of times load-shedding did shut it for me(& still does)

    GalibTheGamer get a good surge protector(look into vanguard's gadget list). similar incident happened to 1 of my friend(he also had a ups which was of no use)
    I will try to buy one bro. Can you name me a few of them?
