I keep my pc open and cool it using an external fan, the temperatures are maintained good. I use voltage stabilizer to protect my pc from sudden energy surges. Today arround 3:30 a.m. an energy cut happened, it didn't even last a second, so the pc basically kept on as well as the screen, but the last one didn't activate. I had to press the button to force a restart and it activated (sorry if i'm not using the proper terms)


Before this sudden energy cut my cpu was at 32 °C - 29 °C and when i used it more it went up to

45 °C and maintained cool. But now i notice my CPU is unable to go under 38 °C even when i don't perform any activity.


Has the electric surge after the sudden energy cut damaged any component? If so, how can i recognize it?


I know this temperatures are not particulary bad, but for me it has marked a before and an after so i would be very thankful towards any assistance i can receive to increase my knowledge and know what i can do to prevent further deterioration.


As a side note, some weeks ago i had to change my keyboard because one day the CPU turned on but the screen didn't (just like i describe above). I had to press the button to force restart and i noticed all the keyboard lights were on and no key worked. I took my CPU and old keyboard to a technician and we discovered that both the keyboard and the ps/2 port for the keyboard were damaged. The technician said that the extrange way the PC turned on was because the keyboard was faulty.
