    I was lucky when we had one here and that I just had to unplug the pc for about 20 minutes and then power it all up again with no problems.

    Since then I got a anti surge plug

    OK craig, first thing to check would be modem and network card usually first problems due to the resistors being pants until very recently.

    (i've went through 1 cable modem due to a power surge wont happen again :P)

    main things to check is all cards and peripherals(external devices). Check any burn marks on the motherboard and CPU. If none are present you're fine.
