Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Hi, a few weeks ago there was a bad lighting storm in my hometown. My husband was on our Mac desktop when all of a sudden lighting struk and next thing we know all our electronics where out including the Mac. After a few short minutes, progresively everything came back on eccept the Mac. We took it to the Mac store but they want to charge us $1000.00 bucks to fix it. Is there any way we can fix it ourselves?
