  1. power surge = electronic device failure = BUY A NEW COMPUTER!
  2. Download CPU-Z and let us know what type of cpu and mobo you have.
    Once that's established you can download the mobo manual and decipher your beep codes.
    I'm guessing but i would imagine the jolt could have played havoc with your bios/cmos.
    There is also the possibilty of component damage.
    At the very least you should have your electronic gear plugged into surge protectors.
    $10 dollar ones will suffice and take the brunt of a lightening strike or surge.
  3. Davcon, if you cannot boot, you cannot run CPU-Z on that motherboard.
