    The computer is not working.
    A large thunderstorm passed through the other night and when I went to turn it on I got nothing.
    Where would I start to repair it

    A little more Information would be helpful. Such as system specs and such. Not just that it is a WinXP computer. Manufacturer and model numel number. Or Motherboard manufacturer and model number, CPU, Ram, HDD, Video, Peripherals, OS. Was the computer plugged into a surge protector? Lightening Strike damage doesn't have to mean that the computer or your house itself was struck by lightening. All it takes sometimes is a surge in the line voltage to kill a computer that is not adequately protected. If you do not have a quality Surge Protector I would suggest disconnecting the computer from all outside electrical connections including modem and ethernet connections during times of thunder storms.
