View Full Version : Ever had your computer struck by lightning?

I just experienced it last Friday... and the damage was bad...

Power supply fried.
Motherboard totally smoked.
Graphics card is gone.
Printer is damaged badly.Cost me quite a fortune to replace them... :rolleyes:

Worse still, my satellite dish is dead, all the TVs were down (although managed to restore two; the LCD is not repaired yet), and worst one of all... my poor Xbox :sad: (adapter is toast, and no graphics on TV - in process of repairing it. Take about 3-4 weeks... OUCH :tape:).

Anyone having a similar experience like mine?

Never heard of something like this.

yes, my dad's computer was struck, but the surge protector softened the blow.

Sorry to hear about all the damage you incurred.

No, but I caught a virus from 1995.
