Here is the story, We had a tunder storm and there was a big flash. Then we checked everything in the house no problem. Until I noticed that the tiny red leds on my mobo internal power button was not lit up. I tried to turn the computer on and nothing. So I disassembled it to check the power supply. It worked fine, but what I did notice was a faint electronic hum/beep comming from the mobo that would go in and out, when the power supply was connected and truned on. But nothing is burned up on the mobo everything looks fine. So, I check my internet and my wireless router seems to not be working but my modem when plugged in hard line to my laptop works fine. Also, everything else in my computer seems to work fine when I hard line it to the psu- dvd,fans,hdd,etc... So, now to the horrible question I must ask. Does this sound like my mobo and router are fried? Is there somthing I can check or do to test the mobo mainly? If it is fried does that mean that my cpu is also fried? I am so sad and do not know what to do next please help! This has never happend to me and this is the first computer I have built. It seems as if the lightning went through the network cabling and not the electrical outets. I still dont know why the modem would be fine and not the router or mobo. My specs are below. Thank you all.
