Thanks everyone for your help.
That's what I suggested you try . If you know somebody with a PSU you can try, I'd suggest asking if you can use theirs first to test.

Good to hear that's all it was.

What did you replace it with? Are you still getting the surge trigger warnings?

I replaced it with the exact same one. I figured the power supply was faulty. And to be safe I bought a monster surge protector on my outlet wall.
No issues with it as of now.

A "Monster" brand one? Yeah, you spent too much. They're nothing more than a gimmick for the most part. Would have been better off buying a decent UPS - at least then you'd have battery backup as well as surge protection - and depending on the model, a power filter.

Yeah you did pay way too much.

APC, Tripp-lite, and even Belkin have good surge suppressors for a 1/3 of what you gave for that Monster.

I like my CyberPower that I have; seems to do it's job well. I need to test the battery in it though - I've had it long enough to where it's probably dying. The battery in my other UPS is dead and I need to replace as well.
