Lost Blonde,

They may have all been "Cooked" beyond repair.

Call your Insurance company - asap

You may also need an electrician.

yes - upgrade - they are fried

The dvd player is about $40. A phone is even less. Those aren't even worth trying to fix.

The stereo components probably aren't worth trying to fix either.

The TV/vcr combo? Only you can decide if its worth $50-60 to have someone look at it.

I would suggest buying a surge protector for all the electronics, not just the computer.

Yes I understand what you are saying they are probally gone. However The tv /vcr is a 27" Hard to find. The phone I just bought last year and I paid 170.00 for it. As for surge protectors they were on one ;-(( so surge protectors dont always work. It went thru the cable lines and telphone lines .
So basically you saying there probally toast hun.
