    Power supply hit by lightning.

    I have a power supply that got hit by lightning. The rest of the computer is fine. The power supply has a little green light on it that lights up when it is plugged in but no power is getting to the board/CD/hard drive/ect. There does not seem to be any burt bits in the power supply. Should I just throw this out or see if I can fix it?

    I would look to see if there is a replaceable internal or external fuse that might have been blown up. If you can not find either type of fuse then I would raid it for the fan (if still good) and throw it away.
