What happens when a lightening strikes your PC?
A powerful lightening struck my cable TV line,
the charge inturn blew a few chips off my PC rendering the PC useless.
Below are the after effects
AMD Athlon Processor with the Cooler & Fan Removed, see the Silcon wafer exposed
ICs from the Motherboard
The cable was plugged into the TV Tuner card. which blew up the Tuner Card and the circuity around it.....
How do you prevent it?
#1 Just un-plug TV Cables / Modem connectors to PC when not in use.
#2 Avoid browsing/viewing Cable during heavy downpour
