Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

My computer was hit by lightening last summer. Sometimes when I turn it on, it will not run through and start, but it will sound like it is running and just sit there indefinetly. I have so far been able to fix the problem by removing the internal battery for a short period of time and then replacing it. Recently this has quit working. I am wondering what I may have to replace inside to put this whole problem behind me. I have a gateway gt5040.

Check that your Engine kill switch is in the Run position.

Bike must be in neutral (with neutral light showing) to crank starter, if you try starting in gear the clutch switch must be activated (lever in) and the sidestand must be up.

Hp desktop won't boot


Firstly how on earth did it get hit with lightening? i have several computers in my house none of which have been hit with lightening during a storm.

secondly it sounds like some of the components are damaged i would try the different components in different machines to rule them out if certain components are damaged you will have to replace them.
