    Lightning  can have  ill effects on any component in the computer. Best to remove all components and start from the bare minimum of CPU, RAM , and Video card, mouse and keyboard.
    Adding one component at a time after that shutting down and restarting after each is installed. Hard drive would be next then any other PCI cards. If any are damaged they will probably give a BSOD or cause freezing.

    If the computer doesn't start from the bare minimum you may get a beep code from the bios which should indicate which component is having a problem.
