SOB!!!! I just took a lightning strike a few minutes ago. I heard a LOUD pop over at the desktop.
So far my cable modem is totally out, no lights on at all, and no data processing thru. It smells like it's fried.
Also my desktop took a hit. It boots up but no video is displaying up to the monitor. I was hoping it was just the monitor that got hit, but I just hooked up the laptop to it and the monitor works fine. So I'd say my video card got hit.
I'll have to call the cable company to get a new cable modem tomorrow, and I'll have to get a video card soon and hopefully that will fix everything.
Until then I can use someone elses connection whenever I can...but the wireless signals are so low.
Well right now is the first time I've been able to get a good wireless connection today. I did call the cable company and they are bringing me a new cable modem tomorrow afternoon. So I may not be able to post for long today.
