Last night lightning struck right outside my house, blew some kind of transformer thing. It caused my computer to restart, and it destroyed my modem. Nothing else in house was even affected a little. I am guessing the spike came in through internet wires, blew out modem, and traveled on ethernet cord to my pc. Now my ethernet port on the MB is toast. Thankfully I do not think it did any more damage.....but now my computer wont shut off. And it turns itself on after I shut it off. I hooked a usb wifi card up out of necessity, but I feel like it is destined to get broken as it sticks out wither the front of back of my desktop like 3 inches, and i have cats and kids that like to run and knock stuff over. Is my computer now self aware? I mean it cleaerly prefers to be on now, and I cannot stop it from turning itself on,a nd staying on unless I pull plug. What do sherdog?
