Hello, I recently had a case where lightning struck my computer, and my motherboard (a320m-k) was damaged. I bought the same one, connected all the components however when I turn on the computer the power supply seems to give voltage for seconds. The spark plug in the center flashes, as well as the lights on the mouse which also flash (Pc cannot be lit at all).

That's impossible. Unless your PC was outside.

More likely you house was struck by lighting and you had a power surge which fried your system. Most likely it damaged more than just the mobo.

I would start off with a new PSU and see where that gets you.

That's my guess.
The power surge also fried other components.
