  2. Get a UPS (uninterruptible power supply) that has positive (industrial grade) surge suppression capabilities. That's what I use, and never have had a problem in 10+ years.

In any case, the surge from the lightning strike has damaged your computer(s) and they need to be repaired or replaced. If you are lucky, the data on your discs is still intact, but no promises there without running some tests to verify the file system and data integrity.

Try to use your cpu with other monitor if you see the display on the monitor then your monitor is faulty.
You can use other surge suppressor which is of high-quality.
