hey everyone and experts.
I was working with my pc and suddenly power was lost and came back so fast .
i was using a surge protector and it didnt show any reaction!
and it was like a pc restart windows booted up again and it seemed to be normal.
my power supply is green 700w hp.
my question is did anything happen to my hardware like damage or smth?
and if the surge protector didnt do anything ,did my psu protect my hardwares?

Not sure which surge arrestor you are using, some will shut off if power is lost others just absorb voltage spikes. If your power flickered its possible that there was no voltage spike or that your arrestor did its job. You have nothjing to worry about.

I don't know man, i'd recommend you check your voltages of your PSU, via your motherboard's BIOS or HWInfo (less accurate), (look up on how to check voltages)

Keep a close eye on your pc, if you notice a sudden change in performance or your getting blue screens / lock ups / crashes, check your voltages then and now to make sure they're good.

Good luck man!
