so i guess while i was at work yesterday afternoon we had a big power surge (which also shut off power on my block until fucking 11:30 at night and my food is probably spoiled but that's another matter... actually, i'll ask it here too: is my food okay to eat probably? hot day? power was out for like 7 hours probably?)

anyway

my computer was on, and asleep, but behind a surge protector, and seems to be functioning fine

my monitor, also was behind a surge protector, and seems to be functioning fine

my monitor is a 2005fpw so it had a 4 port usb hub on it

it doesn't seem to be working anymore

this is annoying

can anything be done or is it kaput?

i think it was a powerful surge, enough that at least one or two outlets just stopped working entirely or something

    You should be alright.

    I recently had my power go out for 10 hours and the days have been 90+ degrees this summer. None of my food was spoiled.

    Do your USB ports work otherwise?

    the USB ports on my PC work, just not the ones on my monitor anymore

    my brain keeps autocorrecting 'usb hub' to 'husband' in the thread title.

    It is unsettling.
