I have a computer that got hit through the phone line by lightning. It will not cut on now. I have a PSU tester and it checked out okay. I even tried another PSU and it didn't cut on. When i plug in the power to the motherboard, the little green light on the motherboard lights up. When can i do to determine if it's the motherboard is bad?

Stick the processor and the memory (and graphics if no onboard graphics) in another working board of the same socket type and see if it POSTs. If it does, the original board is screwed. If it doesn't, the processor is screwed if it doesn't beep, or the memory is screwed if it does beep.
