    My PC worked fine lsat night. I went to bed and shut it off. Last night there was a power surge. This morning I turned my PC on and the lights inside it and components turned on, but my keyboard, mouse, and monitor do not turn on.

    I brought my computer into my brother's room and tried his equipment with my computer and everything worked fine. Though when I brought it back into my room, none of my stuff still worked. When I plugged my peripherals into his computer, everything worked fine. When I plugged his peripherals into my computer in my room, none of it worked.

    I attempted to move my computer back into his room and use his gear to play some games, but now none of his gear works on my PC anymore.

    I'm assuming that my computer instantly boots into some sort of BIOS/ Safe mode and therefore doesn't power the keyboard, mouse, or monitor.

    Also, I had this same issue about 2 months ago and brought it to a PC repair place. They couldn't find anything wrong with it and handed it back to me about two days later. I plugged it back into my same mouse, keyboard, and monitor that I have today and it all worked fine.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    No that doesn't happen, you should get some sort of display on the monitor just after switching the computer on.

    Also the monitor is usually powered separately from the computer so it should at least show a power light if it's on, does your monitor do that ?
