what?.....a computer repair shop will run tests to find the root of a problem...but they'd have to have a description of the problem to have any chance of fixing anything.....we kind of operate on the same idea...we can't help without some idea of what the problem is...so....what's the problem you're having anyway?

Well, lightening strikes, severe as they are, don't usually affect software, but only hardware. However, it might affected the hardware, and the media center (assuming you're talking about Windows Media Center) is affected from the hardware issues... In short, describe the issues to us and we might be able to help :)
