Computer power won't turn on

Our HP Media Center PC m7640n will not turn on. Last night we did have a storm and our surge protector has what looks like a burn mark on the side of it. Our surge protector has a light that indicated a line fault. However, all of our other equipment plugged into the same surge protector does have power. Our computer was turned off during the storm last night. Help!

First thing to do is try to plug the pc in another wall socket to see if it goes on, If not, the MB could have gotten fried, even though the other plugs seem to work. Hopfully you just need another surge protector as that could have gotten damaged.

Why does my tv turn on then off , on, off continuosly by its self an wont stop


Electrical storms can damage components. Are you insured?

When you get the TV fixed/replaced, buy some surge protectors or a UPS (uninteruptable power supply) to protect the rest of your gear.

Being a newer fridge I would look at the control board being faulty. They do not Handel porters surges very well and you may have blown a relay or resistor on the board. I would install a surge protector on anything you own with electronics in the future.

More than likely your power supply got fried from a power surge during that storm anyway. You'd be surprised at how worthless most surge suppressors are these days.

Lightning storm & power went out for about two seconds. PC plugged into surge protector but would not go back on. Found that surge protector blew and was no good. Got another and plugged all back in...


Your reasoning about the switch mode power supply being damaged is probably right.
Bear in mind that this power supply may not be the only thing that may be damaged in your computer.
You won't know for sure until you borrow a power supply and install it into your computer to see if it will work again.

Wii wont turn on, nothing had a lightning storm last night and now nothing


Try replacing the power cable, many times when there is a power surge and you do not have a surge protector it will burn out the transformer on the power cord. If you replace it and still nothing, most likely your Wii has been burned out by a power surge.
