Re: Computer lagging after thunderstorm
Ohhh....leaving your pc turned on in a thunderstorm is a bad bad idea. If in fact you have to replace your psu/motherboard, I would suggest getting a UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply). It's basically a big battery with plugs on it. It'll connect to your pc via usb and when the electricity goes out, it'll keep the pc on and automatically shut it down the right way so nothing gets damaged.
When all else fails...Ham Radio!
I still have the same old HP DV9700T laptop I've had for years...still kickin'
