Hello. I have a question to ask you.
Is there any means or way to test one's computer for lightning damage or electrical surges and show the degree of hardware damage?
Sources and/or methods I would "think" would be applicable to determine by:
1. Using some software program to install that tests one's computer to detect minute levels of electrical computer damage with various hardware components?
2. Performing some other mechanical means with hardware testing with specialized equipment to detect minute levels of electrical computer damage with various hardware components?
This applies to both desktops and laptop computers. The operating system is Windows based for a software program answer and solution. Obviously, would work on the LATEST Windows operating system.
Other than what I have mentioned, I am leaving this question 'open' and general in nature without detailed predefined restrictions established. I'm leaving this question open as to let numerous EE experts from different computer IT fields comment on this with answers and/or solutions.
Please provide your own detailed steps with suggestions, hints, and tips; and/or the best possible well written, detailed and documented website links hopefully containing images and demonstrations along with the instructions.
DO NOT USE LMGTFY.com or similar-like web links in your reply. I consider its use very unprofessional for EE experts. If you do, you will not get acknowledged and receive no credit.
