Third brownout in two weeks, mouse and keyboard respond a second later.

I have a UPS coming, but have had some unholy luck after a literal 8 month spree of trying to fix issues related to stuttering (and fixing them). I have now had a third brownout in my house that must have damaged some significant components.

 

It already bricked a PSU last week, but this brownout was a little longer, I shut down immediately after it started happening.

 

Came back to massive input lag on both mouse and keyboard, I fear some tiny piece of my Mobo is damaged.

 

Really upset had so much bad luck regarding my equipment, finally wanted to play some games tonight and now its all broke again, feeling like shit. Not only will I have to get everything new again (because how will I diagnose what was actually damaged) and save for ages, I can't even sell my equipment and will have to go without my main hobby for a great deal of time.

Contact the manufacturer of your components and see what they can do. Are the brown outs sending surges of electricity and frying your pc? It could just be windows freaking out. Try a linux usb or reinstall. It's unlikely that will fix it but window could have corrupted something when the power went out and it was in the middle of writing or changing something.

Literally an idiot, don't listen to me.

Unfortunately these components were bought used bit by bit. The brownouts are undervolting and damaging by drawing too much current probably.

Well if the wall is less than 120v or 220v, depending where you live, it's not going to fry anything it's just going to not work. It might try to pull more current to make up for the less voltage but that won't kill the components unless the psu goes nuts and sends out a way too high voltage and breaks everything. It sounds like somethings fried though. When power surges happen they can cause some super weird issues. Like i said try another OS, and maybe a different mouse and keyboard and see if there is still horrible latency. Or try your keyboard and mouse on another computer.

I went on superuser and some specialists said there's basically an massive amount of tiny thin s that can be damage and there is a massive grey area and it isnt on and off black and white like that. Unfortunately this is something I just cant get past and have some minor issues adding 200ms latency to all my actions. It seems impossible that I will ever find out what is the cause and will just be another year of horrible waste of time troubleshooting. I'm just going to trash it all and start fresh save up for a year or two again. Shit happens I guess.

Reinstall Windows.

 

Seriously doubt anything is "damaged" from the brownouts besides your data.
