Good Day Everyone!
 
Hello here am i on my everyday life using my desktop at home this never happened to me before, so the case is I am playing a game and suddenly my computer monitor went off (but the cpu and avr still has its lights on) and after a while the computer have no life(lights) too and so does the avr. So what happened here? this never happened before and no matter where i plug the avr or cpu it wont turn on? (and i also tried plugging directly the cpu to a wall plug but i guess it needs AVR) I've read some information on internet tried finding some other guys that has the same situation as mine and some say it must be the power supply or i need to replace the avr. But Im not really sure what to test first? or buy? Hope you can help me.

Going forward, please install a good-wattage-sized UPS for your computer center.  Now, what is an AVR?

an AVR is a automatic voltage regulator it is used to maintain voltage to electronic devices it has 220v and 110 v sockets. i think my AVR and power supply breaks down cause i cant use it anymore. theres no power on my PC.
