Hello, I have an asus m3a78-cm. The other day I was on it and a thunder storm came in and shut the power off for a few seconds. when I tried to restart my computer, it loaded fine to the logon screen. I put in my password then it acted like it was gonna load my desktop but brought up a grey screen. I cant access startup or anything. I can get into task manager, but cant find "system restore" or "run.exe". Any tips on what is wrong and what I should do to fix it??

It's very hard to tell from your description what is happening. See the troubleshooting guide in my sig.

Possibly the OS is corrupted or you have a power supply issue due to the power surge.
