So the other day I turned my pc on and it somehow tripped the electric in my house and now my pc won’t turn on at all. Does anyone have any idea what could’ve happened and how to fix this?

edit: to clarify I have turned the electricity back on.

You need to flip the breaker on the circuit panel back on.

If you've done that, then you need to see if the power bar you are using is on and if its not, there maybe a switch to turn it back on. If not see if the outlet is getting power, if so you fried something maybe.

Yea, the electricity is back on I just need to figure out if it’s fried something or what.

You most likely fried the power supply and that's why it won't turn back on, or blow a fuse because the PSU is dead.


If you can, then you should.

That’s disappointing because the psu is only 3 months old.

What PSU is it?
Do you know how to do the paper clip test?
Remove all the power cables from your motherboard and place a paper clip, or something else conductive, on pin 4 and 5 (green and black wires).
If the PSU does turn on then it will indicate that it can work, but not that it does work and you would need to do further tests with it.


If you can, then you should.
