PowerBI no longer connected to SQL Server

Hi, I have PBI and a SQL Server 17 developer connection.
I have been doing imports from my database with no issues, then do to a power surge, my laptop connected to the server went down. 
When I reconnected i was unable to do any connectivity with my SQL Server tables, and the issue is that it seems that certificates became corrupted. Haven't talke
Question, is a reinstall the easier way to go since all my DB's are back up ? Or is there a way to resolve it? Both the Server and PowerBI are on the same machine.

 

Thank you.

Actually I found the solution by sheer luck. 
It turned out that updating my SSMS to the latest version resolved the problems with my certificates.  It seems like when SSMS was updated, they recreated the certificates that were corrupted.

Thanks for your respone
