    Was the monitor on during the storm? Are you using a surge protector? Have you tried another monitor to test your machine?

    What is the make and model of your montior?

        If it's a CRT (not flat panel) then one of the "guns" are blown.  It's not worth repairing...replace it.

          i was thinking it could be the RGB driver ic(LM2469 or LM1269) for the CRT that could be the problem,so replacing it cannot fix the problem.Suggestions please.!

            Open the OSD. Arrow to Degauss. Press Degauss. Degauss= Demagnetise.

            I don't think degauss would work in this case, but you could try anyway.
