Since lightning struck the house the CM1312 is dead. I looked inside and the main fuses are okay. Any suggestions?


Call your insurance company and put in a claim.
If it is under warranty call HP.

My pc cant start after lightning cause blackout,then i change new power supply..but it still can start..


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

Ethernet port not functioning after lifghtening strike


Ethernet port not working after a lightning strike? Then I suggest obtaining an inexpensive Ethernet adapter card, and installing it.

One example of an Ethernet adapter card, (Ethernet Card, Networking Card - Same/same),

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=1275962&CatId=200

The above Ethernet adapter card is a PCI style of adapter card. It plugs into any available PCI expansion slot on the Pavilion a620n's motherboard.

This is an illustration and photo of the Pavilion a620n motherboard from HP Support,

Scrolling to the middle of the page shows first the illustration, then the photo.
In the motherboard photo the three white long expansion slots on the bottom of the motherboard, are the PCI slots.

On this page is information on how to open the computer case, and replace, or install an Ethernet Card,

Dv9000 won't power on or charge. blue lightning bolt flashes


I just had this problem with my HP Pavilion dv9005us Notebook PC, and the problem is one of two things (that I know).
  1. Your'e Laptop's battery is completely empty, and needs to be plugged in to charge for an hour or two
  2. Or your laptop cord is broken, or isn't working properly.
For me, it was the secon problem. I went online searching for answers as to where I could buy a new cord for my Laptop. My previous one was universal, as the one that came with the notbook was chewed by my puppy. So Staples Canada, (or US) and Futureshop where the only places I could but this cord. They had the laptops on one wall, and the cords underneath them. In total, I paid $112.00, $89.99 plus tax, and $10 for an extended 2 year unlimited warranty. It sucked forking out the money, but I knew that I could trust the HP brand, and now have a working laptop.

Hope this helped (:

When I turn on my computer nothing happens but the light flashes?


A lightening strike!!!!!! The power surge from a strike could have blown the computer's motherboard and processor. Did you have any surge protection and was the computer on at the time? chances are the computers fried.
There is one last thing you can do, that is remove the side panel from the desktop so you can see the motherboard, you will see a battery like this >>ecb2000.jpg. Near to the battery you will see a plastic "jumper" this will reset the cmos if you move it to the other position, turn the pc on, if nothing happens the cmos has been cleared, put the jumper back in its original position and start the computer again, if you still get nothing them some if not all the components inside the computer has been fried.

Good luck

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.
