Update your post to include full system hardware specs and OS.

What is that "safe thing" on the cable: make, model, version? Surge Protector, UPS, something else?

When the PC beeps is there a pattern of long and short beeps? Listen carefully.

Computer beeps rapidy short beeps like as if it wants to imitate a crashing helicopter

Your English is fine.

Sometimes the terminology gets a bit confusing especially with technical terms and translations.

Just take a look at the "power duplicator". Post any name,, make, model information that you find.

Or take a couple of photographs.

My thought is that you have a surge protector/ power bar of some sort.

They are designed to only absorb/protect to some design level of surge or power protection. Once that level is reached or even exceeded the device will no longer provide protection and/or fail in some manner.

Local power problems and thunderstorms can quickly cause such devices to reach their designed EOL (End of Life).

So it can be that the power aurge didnt help and my pc is dead?
Or the problem that the thunder did has a limint and only the psu needs replacement
The psu is corsair cs650m

Could be the surge protector, the PSU, the motherboard, or some motherboard component. Or - when lightning is involved could be some combination.

Also, reading back, do you also have a UPS that provides power to the computer and monitor if power goes out?

First check the surge protector - it may a a small button somewhere to reset an internal circuit breaker. Check the UPS (if there is one) as well.

Connect the PC to power without any thing else in the power path. Try another wall outlet. Get as direct of a power connection to the PC as you can.

Then, if the PC works again start adding things back one at a time - if the computer stops working when a particular device is reconnected then that device is probably bad.

Also remember to look at all of devices that are connected. Get the make and model information from each. Post accordingly and include how they are connected.

Ok thanks
The surge protector isnt the problem because i conected the pc straight to the wall,same problem
I want to post the pc spec the problem is that i dont remember what ate they and i can only check if the pc would have booted

We dont have an alternative power supply
Any other idea?

Are you comfortable with opening the case and taking a look inside?

Powering down, unplugging, opening the case, then re-seating motherboard connectors and components. Also checking for any lit troubleshooting LEDS.

Get the make, model, and motherboard version as well. And likewise for any other installed components: GPU, Disk drives, RAM, PSU, etc..

Or do you know someone who can help you do the above steps and do the steps safely? "Safely" meaning both checking inside the case and socially distancing while masked etc. due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
