You could try to re-install Windows. if you can not get that far, your best bet might be to buy another hard drive and put windows on it. That is your best bet beside taking it somewhere and paying $50+ and hour for them to tell you what it is.

hi there;

really,lightning has a great power voltages supply,thousand of volts was supplied in one strikes of lightning.this depend how much voltage was induces on your computer,mostly your avr and psu might be damage by checking if there is power determining the fans inside avr and psu if running maybe you have the power,and some led light are blinking ,some how to be sure you can use multi tester if you have knowledge on this.basic approach if you have black out screen and good power supply,pull out ide cable of hardisk and cd room from mother board,you can run pc w/o them to check your start windows if will open run your pc if still black screen,take another video card and memory card try to replace them and rn your pc,if windows open fine if not maybe you have damage the mother board from lightning.replacing defective devices can put back your windows open.best regards

Dell dimension 2400 hit by lightning. the green


it can be one of 2 things:
1. if the battery charge light is all that comes on then you motherborad is busted.
2. if the power light turns on without the screen showing anything then you will need to replace the screen, but first connect it to an ordinary PC monitory and see if it works from there before changing anything.

Computer won't power up


The power supply should have given way. Replace the PSU and check if it works.

Altec Lansing ACS45.2-Lightning strike


There is a good chance with a lightening strike that damaged so much of your equipment that this device was also affected. power to the device doesn't necessarily mean that other components were not damaged.... you can elimanate speaker damage by hooking the speakers up to another device to check them.

Lightning


Hi,

In a nutshell, yes and not only to a Dell but to most computer brands/models. In some instances, it's only the modem, router, LAN card that gets fried while some gets everything toasted.

Incidentally, even a near lightning strike is enough to cause big problems.

Kind regards.
