Hardware Diagnosis after high voltage shock. Help!?

This morning, high voltage shock was entered into our house and main switch light bulb was completely exploded and all the breakers were down. At that time i was using my computer. The voltage was so high that sound of explosion was really loud that I can hear it from my room which was fully covered with doors and brick wall. It got repaired and then i turn my computer back on to see if it is ok. Thank god! my computer booted and my monitor show no signs of damage color ects. But i want to make sure all of my pc components are 100% fully ok. I want to run hardware diagnosis. Which software should i use. I use desktop computer. As u can see the middle light indicator was completely exploded and I saw smoke coming out. NOONE was injured!

    If your computer is working, then chances are it survived.Your household wiring may be in a bad state. Hopefully, your household wiring was inspected during the repair.

    Along with the other suggestions, memory test is important to run.

    https://www.memtest86.com/ is very comprehensive and will take a long time to run, anywhere from an hour to 6 hours (depends on your system).

    Years ago that happened to me and it just fried my hard drive on the spot. That's the day I bought an expensive surge protector. Anyway, I'd run CHKDSK . Command line, CHKDSK <space> C; or whatever your main disk is called. Can't hurt.

    If the computer seems OK it probably is. If you wish to run a stress test, download furmark and run it, there is a CPU burn in test and a GPU stress test
