    Hey, I'm having this problem that just happend with my motherboard I think...
    ok so a couple of my buds and me were on the pc just playing some games when there was a sudden storm and lightning took out all the power in my house...and when the power came back on everything was working perfectly...im assuming its a mobo problem because when i rebooted i didnt hear the usual 1 beep i hear and it wouldnt even load onto the mobo logo screen...im guessing its the mobo since it doesnt even go to the mobo logo screen just want some other opinions.

    Is the Power Supply Unit working?
    Any lights come on when you try to boot it?

    I think the power supply is fine, because all the fans and the lighting on them work fine and the cd drives open perfectly..

    Still could be the power supply. Most motherboards will not power up if its sensors detect current that is out of range for the motherboard to operate properly.

    It has happened to me. I bought a new ASUS A7N8X-X and it wouldn't power up (not even the green light on the board itself) because my +12V was only reading+ 10.2 and my -5V was reading -7.4V ..

    Bought a new power supply, and it has been working great ever since.

    No bleep can also mean the CPU is dead. I've had someone bring in a computer that didn't start up after a power cut. Turned out to be the CPU. I'd try changing that first.

    I had just the same problem before try this:
    1) Turn off the computer. Switch off the power completely
    2)Take the memory chips out of the sockets and turn on the computer.You should hear beep, beep.... thats Ok. Now turn off comp again.Put the memory chips back, make sure they placed properly, don't push too hard
    3)Take our video card out the socket.Turn on computer back again. You should hear beep, beep.... again that is fine.Turn off power put the video card back again.
    4) Turn on the comp. Should boot fine. Unless anything else damaged.
