Was it power on during the storm
Power supply's have a overcharge or over voltage protection try to reset the power supply please turn of the power switch for 5 mins and after 5 mins please normal boot it.
I had this problem before and did that it work aft resetting it

Hey, guys something in my friends computer seems to have fried im guessing from Fridays storm on the east coast since it was fine earlier that day. It was on a surge protector, but looks like it didn't save it the problem is plain and simple it wont turn on. I opened it up and saw that the motherboard a "xfx 750i" seemed to be receiving power from the psu since the little red light which i believe is suppose to tell you if ur psu is providing power was lite. And the green one was lite at as well showing we could overclock. I ended up looking at all the capacitors on the mb and it seemed fine, but when i turn the computer on its side to see if the psu fan was spinning it wasn't at all when pushing the power button. So at this point im speculating that the psu or mb is done most likely the psu. Now I just wanted to double check what you guys think should i put in a rma for his psu, or order him a new mb for me to install?
btw psu was a corsair 650 v2 i believe....
