    If lightning strikes a power line and your machine isn't protected properly yes the lightning will fry it.

    YES, BUT only if it is connected to Internet cause internet gets its connection from the sattelite which gets affected by storms & lightings and in turn affects ur PC.

    I had a computer ruined by lightening so yes it definitely can mess up your computer! Turn it off and unplug it! Ours wasn't even on, just plugged in.
