There is a high probability that your laptop has been fried, especially if it was plugged into the mains at the time of the lightning strike.
A lightning strike could damage many components and even if you could get it fixed (most likely require a motherboard replacement) there are no guarentees that some other component won't fail in the future.
If it was me, I would put my money towards a new laptop and get a surge/lightning protection power board and disconnect the laptop from the main during a lightning storm.

Compac laptop opens programs too slow.

It probably is due to Spyware, Malware or other infections.
Go to and download the free scanner.
Run it and see.

Can't get laptop to turn on. Battery pack lights show full charge, power cord is plugged in. No indicator lights illuminating at all, wondering if it is my motherboard. Compaq Presario 2200 laptop.

very first thing u have do is if u have any other laptop try and connect the aac adaptor with that laptop and also try the battery if it is working with the other laptop that means the motherboard of the computer has gone bad u need to replace it and what also u can try is disconnect the ac adaptor and take out the battery from the laptop and the without ac adaptor and the battery press and hold down the power button for one minute and then connect the ac adaptor and put the battery back in and then try and turn on the computer and also what u can do is shut down the computer first and then just hit the power butoon once only to turn it on and then keep tapping f8 key on the keyboard and it will take u to windows advance options and select safe mode with networking and then try if it turns on to the windows screen or not......and if it doesnt turn ono then definately replace the motherboard...good luck....

Laptop not powering

try a simple power cycle. Take out the battery, leave power adapter plugged in. Hold down the power button for about one minute. Then hit the power button normally this should correct the problem

Comp will not turn on also see lightning bolt display

Hi All,

This happens because of static energy storing in the motherboard components.

We can try power drain to resolve this issue.

Try doing power drain by taking out the battery & keep holding down the power button for complete one minute to drain out the power from the computer components. Restart the computer after putting the battery in.
Try restarting the computer only with the AC power, without the battery & vice-versa.

That should resolve the issue, if the issue persists, then you have to contact service center.

Hope that information helped you!!
