Most likely something beyond the power supply has been damaged by the lightning strike and will have to be repaired by a service center.

My pc dont open just the black appearing in may monitor???what should i do???


Hi jheca_28
It could be the fuse of the power unit . Check that first .
Check all power and/or connecting cables .
If you have the install disc , launch it just to see wat happens . If it's starting normally , let it run untill you need to select an operation . Choose repair .
If something is going wrong , you'll get a warning message . Probably your HDD is dead .
You will need to test it on another healthy computer .
Good luck !

I have a COMPAQ, Presario SR1055CL Desktop, that will not bootup


Hi....If the computer will not start and you hear no fans or other electrical sounds chances are the power supply has failed. If you had an electrical storm that caused the blackout and did not have a surge protector power strip it could be much worse. Check the power supply first. You can google for help in testing that supply. Good Luck Hank

My dell was hit by lightning and now i cant get it to boot up


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.

Advanced power options settings UPS for blackout buster?software


I have to answer this question with just plain old common sense. Get a new one! This is crazy. If you get a new one, you will have a better, more upto date and something you can handle with todays OS and obviously new batteries. That is too old to mess with. I fixed a powerware once and the plastic was falling apart and the PC board was held together with a rubber band. Not worth it.

Flashing lightning bolt on Compaq C300


This sounds like a battery problem. The best way to test this is to remove the battery and then power the laptop up with just the power cord plugged in but no battery. If the computer boots then the battery is bad you will need a replacement. Also try letting the battery charge for a day. Be sure that the charging light is coming on when you have it plugged in.

Lightning?


90 % of the time, when you get lightning damage to a tv set, its not worth repairing, because the chain reaction the surge causes. Its a matter of labor v cost of a new set. Ive seen brand new large screen tvs 1 week old get popped with lighyning and cause every board in the set to bur and blow out not only the printed circuit traces, but the ICs had holes in them and the transistors were blow apart. Luckly this customer had homeowners insurance and got a new set. With a lightning strick all you can do is start from the front of the power supply an work your way back till you get some life in the set. Now you could get lucky as I know panasonic uses whats called a thyristor type of a device that when a surge enters the set it shorts out the ac plug and pops the internal fuse and it will be black. You cant simply replace the fuse cause the thyrisistor is shorted. Also no one with no teleivision training should be inside a tv now a days as there are no user serviceable parts inside and theres way way more voltage inside these sets ,even unplugged then a dvd or satillite reciver. I would advise you to get a pro to assist you in this matter as it could if your lucky ,like i said before be a simple problem But i've seen peeps make a mountain out of a molehill. Good Luck

I have a serious problem with my ASUS Eee PC 1008 HA, purchased 3 months ago. A few weeks ago the mousepad froze, and despite whatever I did, would not move. Then suddenly it decided to work again without me having done anything. Anyway since then, now I have no access to any wireless networks, when before it worked perfectly. I have tried all the simple layman ways to connect this again, without succes. A local PC repair shop told me that as I got the following message when running a check; Network Adapters FAILED, then there is either a fault with the software or the hardware concerning connectivity. They did not access my Netbook or open it though, as this would void the warrantly. Is what they said definitely the case ? In a week I am going away, however if I return it to where it was purchased tomorrow they will not refund me immediately, I would have to wait for 2 weeks while it would be sent away to be checked. Therefore I would have no choice but to buy a new Netbook in the next few days for my trip, and would be out of pocket for at least £ 250 for a suitable replacement in the meantime. Maybe there is an easy fix for this, and I just do not have the knowhow. So if you can offer any advice or help this would be very much appreciated ! If possible I would actually like to keep the netbook, as before the mousepad went down it worked perfectly, and I found it light, stylish and easy to use. I look forward to any advice you can give !
