I have a pc here that was damaged by a lightning strike, I can start it up fine, but after dinking with it, I got it to start up and boot. On POST, it does the standard Phoenix hardware change check asking to continue or enter setup. Either way I do it, the next time I start the pc it just runs with no beeps, no video, and no sound (N-bvs) until I reset the CMOS then the loop starts again.
any ideas? And no, it's not: IDE devices, SATA devices, CMOS Battery, RAM, CPU.
