Modem and Speakers dead on pavilion ze5375us

I am fairly confident that the modem and main speakers on my pavilion ze5375 are fried. I had a close lightning strike. After the strike the screen was black and the computer would not respond. I had lights but no responce. I held power button untill the computer shut down. After boot up no modem or speakers. The computer says they are not installed. If I plug in the phone line all the phones in the house go dead. I am able to update using ics on a local network here at home. What do you think? Can modem or speakers be replaced? I can live with it the way it is if I must.
Thanks
Joe

Hi Jrynerson,

You can ADD speakers and external modem but as this is a notebook it all depends if you want it to still be portable :( Check with you home insurance most will cover storm damage, a replacement is often cheaper than repair.
I know it sounds extreme but I would not trust a machine thats been zapped by EMF
