Power failure During a rain storm the power in my neighborhood went out for about 30 minutes. There was no lightning, just wind. When power was restored, my computer would not turn on at all (nothing happens when I press the power button on the front). I checked the outlets, power strip and power cord. I plugged the computer directly into the wall and changed the power cord...nothing. Do you think I could get this fixed? Thanks. Lisa
