Hello all you Geeks. Great site. I have to confess I committed a mortal sin by not having my two computers plugged into a surge protector. Thunder and lighting storm killed both computers. The newer computer is only 13 months old (Gateway GT 5228) the other is a Dell from 2001 (not concerned about it). Ispoke to Gateway no help, no warranty. I have replaced the power suppy with no help. I have taken the hard drive out and was able to recover my files. Without replacing the motherboard (if that's the answer) is their anything else you geeks can recommend to resurrect this pour soul or is it lost for eternity???
BTW, it was the wife who removed the surge protector, go easy!
