Question about Computers & Internet

No sound after a storm- no fix found

I have an IBM ThinkCentre 8142 (refurb). Once upon a time and not so long ago- I had sound and a flat screen... One day after a rain storm, I came home and the flat screen wouldn't turn on. Another (older) monitor is working fine in the fried one's place- BUT the sound will not revive.
I tried different speakers (didn't work), tried unistalling and reinstalling the Soundmax driver (didn't work), tried bypassing with the headphone jack (didn't work)... Any hot ideas on this one?

I jst bought used IBM 8183 Thinkcentre every time

You will need to install Windows. If you have an install disk, insert the disk into the optical drive and restart the computer. Go into BIOS and select "Boot from CD/DVD". Follow the install instructions on screen.

I can't see anything in the screen

You need to change your bios settings for the PCI graphics card to be the default monitor settings. See if you can boot into your bios by pressing F1 or F2 or the delete key. Once you are in look for the PCI configuration. I hope this helps.
