my compy survived a lightning strike!

Recommended Posts

Damn I was crapping myself. Lightning was right overhead, the delay between the lightning and thunder was less than a second.

 

Power goes out, and I get three diagnostic lights on the mobo! Turn off, wait 30 seconds, try again, same thing. I'm freaking out. I let it rest for a few minutes while I download the DFI manual on another computer, and give it another try, and it starts right up.

 

Close one! I'm pushing 1.7V on my clawhammer, and got a voltmodded 7900GT, I figured that the something like this would easily push it over the edge and blow a gasket somewhere. I'm so lucky.
