I apologize, I'm running through a few sites trying some different things w/o much luck. But yes, total power outage after a really close lightning strike, only the pc and the modem wouldn't power back up afterwards, two lcd tvs and two satellite boxes unaffected. I tried to power up the pc after and nothing. I figured it was pay back for buying a cheap PSU when I built it so I really didn't push the matter when it happened.
I had everything on an external so no loss there, everything that was on the pc seems fine, HDD fired right up no issue, no corruption. On the plus side, looks like everything minus the mobo survived without a catch. Memory checked out ok, and gpu seems to be fine.
I would just like to know if I can fix the power down issue and only have to buy an nic card or if I should just replace the mobo and be done with it.
