Default Broken Monitor

OK so I have been looking for a new LCD monitor for a while but cant afford one. My friend was having some troubles with his monitor since there was a thunderstorm. So the problem is that when I first got it it was working fine for 10-20 minutes. THe screen went black(monitor turned off) and it would not start up again. My friend said he couldnt turn it on and if I fix It i can have it since they just bought a new Monitor. Do u think it has something to do with the AC adapter? The monitor was perfectly fine until it turned off and I think its not getting enough power or something. Maybe the storm did something to the A/C adapter. Please reply if u have had this problem or have a suggestion.
