Last monday a thunderstorm knocked out power in our house and only our house. my dsl modem was toes up and the computer would not power on. My router was also dead. everything was shut dpown and powered off at the time of the outage. The next day I tested the psu and even tried hooking up another one. nothing. I got another MB and the got an apparent power on. Fans and drives spun up but no video. I swapped out video cards still nothing. I figure the cpu is fried. I did check the HD by hooking it up as a slave in another pc. I just would like an opinion on whether or not dead memory would cause this or if it is probably CPU. I hear no beeps, but i think the case speaker was already dead.
