\015 My emachines EL 1200 desktop stopped working during storm lightening hit really close to my home. Now will not show up on monitor said no display. Monitor working with other computert though so i know its not monitor. Power light not on, when u plug in fan runs and if u insert any disk or even a vista restore disk it tries to read and u can hear it running then it just stops and sits there, Is there a way to reset this computer? It does not smell or even feel hot. is motherboard or power supply or what? Any help guys?\015

Answers :

You can try to reset the computer by removing all power sources and letting it sit for a time. Then powering it back up and see what happens. That's called a hard reset.
\015\012I am guessing that the storm surge damaged your motherboard. The power supply is working or nothing would work. Try to hit the proper F key and get into the set up on the motherboard. A message should come up when you start up the computer. This is to see if your motherboard is working enough to open the set up. You can then tell it to reset to bois to factory settings.

\015\012If none of that will work, I suspect *********** board is bad and needs to be replaced.
