When a computer turns on, eventually the monitor power light will turn from amber to green indicating there is a video signal coming from the computer. Does this happen?
Also, during boot up, the bios will check the ram, video, and processor. If all is good, you will hear a single beep tone and the computer will continue booting. Do you hear a beep tone? Do you hear any beeping at all?
If none of the above happens, it's a good bet that either the processor/motherboard got fried when the powersupply went out.
You might start by making sure all connections inside the case are secure. Check the video card and make sure it is seated correctly.
Doesn't sound good though!

Could this be a BIOS problem? If I could just find the CMOS clear jumper I'm wondering if the board would spring back to life!!
